Greens and Socialism

"The Green Party's Manifesto for a Sustainable Society incorporates key socialist values. It rejects privatisation, free-market economics and globalisation, and includes commitments to public ownership, worker's rights, economic democracy, progressive taxiation, and the re-distribution of wealth and power. The Greens have produced a re-green synthesis integrating policies for social justice with policies for tackling global warming, envrionmental pollution, resource depletion and species extinction." 1
