Its indeed been a terrible day, the man who started the shouting and threw chairs, we have established that he is an Ex-Soldier and a former employee of Military Intelligence, the other three people who joined him, one of them had something like a gun-pistol, it was also seen by the US Envoy and Netherlands Envoy and many others.
This was a well planned sabotage done by security operatives. Another guy was also from the Local Defense Forces. The police was not helpful at all. It looked like they were compromising us.
What is surprising though is that the police has released the guys who caused trouble and rather arrested our members one of them a mother. Thankfully our members have been released but made statements at the police. They were asked why they decided to be members of our party.
Several people are injured, one Lady is in intensive care. Her Back is having a problem. Am still finding out how many are injured.
Keep us in prayers

This should tell the world what Rwanda, the U.S.A.’s closest ally in Africa, and its President Paul Kagame are:
The Rwandan Democratic Greens tried, for the fourth time, to hold their founding convention in Kigali, but this time the police came instead.
I just spoke to Frank Habineza, interim Rwandan Green Party leader, who is in a Kigali hospital trying to arrange an X-ray for a Rwandan Green, a woman with a broken leg.
Another would be Rwandan Green woman has a broken back.
More are injured, and I believe he said some are in jail. He was on a cell in a hospital and I always have to work to understand his sweet French/Kinyarwanda English accent as well.
He wasn’t able to give me any more details now. He had to hurry off to help his friend with the broken leg.
No news on the Web yet. Frank said to watch the BBC and the Rwandan News Agency websites. I told him the state run Rwandan News Agency website won’t let me on their damn website. He himself had to pay them $250 to get on to pick up the articles he sends me, which are almost always yanked off the site as soon as they’re posted.
I didn’t have a chance to urge Frank to Twitter, but I’m going to try calling again to urge him to do so on my way to San Francisco Superior Court in an hour. Frank Habineza’s twitter account.
I have to run and I’ll be gone all morning, but we obviously we need to get on the phones to the White House, the Rwandan Embassies, and the press.
Greens of course, and I addressed this mostly to Greens, but this isn’t just about Greens, obviously. No one should wind up in a hospital with broken bones, or in jail, for attempting to convene a legal, nonviolent political party.
This is the Rwanda that Bill and Hillary Clinton and Reverend Rick Warren point to as Africa’s future, “a shining beacon of hope for Africa.” Bill Clinton hung a Global Citizenship Award around Rwandan President Paul Kagame’s neck a week before Reverend Rick Warren presented him with the same International Medal of Peace he presented George Bush with last year.
This is the Rwanda that the U.S.A. uses to control the vast geostrategic mineral wealth of its neighbor D.R. Congo.
(Anyone feel free to post this note to Green Party lists and websites, and wherever else, ASAP.)

Today, the single-payer health care community learned of its bitter defeat in the fight for the only just and workable solution to this nation’s health care crisis: expanded and improved medicare for all Americans.
We had been advocating two amendments to the health care bill (HB 3200), both of which were removed from consideration by the Democratic leadership today. One, the Weiner Amendment, would have resulted in an up-down vote on single-payer on the house floor. The other, the Kucinich amendment, would have allowed individual states to institute their own single-payer health care systems. Read the rest of this entry »

In a follow up to the mystery of the missing Green Party website on Google searches, an email to Green Party Watch from Google states that the Green Party (US) website gp.org had been removed from the Google index because it had been hacked. Hundreds of hidden links to websites selling prescription drugs is buried on the gp.org website. Google’s standard practice is to remove compromised websites from its search index.
In the mean time, the webmaster for gp.org has been informed of this, and Google has already taken steps of restoring it in the index in anticipation of the website being cleaned up.
**EDITORS NOTE This story is updated here. In short, the Green Party national website, gp.org, was hacked. Google removed the site from their search results because of hidden links at the site put there by unauthorized people. According to software engineers at Google, the same person or people did this to quite a few sites. The gp.org website is no longer hacked.**
A search using the Google search engine for the terms
does not generate any links to the Green Party of the United States webpage. None at all.
With the elections only days away, this presents a real problem for Green Party candidates. A voter searching for their local or state Green Party or Green Party candidates will not find any links to the national party if they use any of these search word strings.
A phone call to Google’s Mountain View offices sent me into voice mail hell, so I sent a fax to their number. Their fax number is 1 650-253-0001
They also have offices across the nation. To find one close to you, please visit this link.
Bing and Yahoo! still place gp.org at the top of their search results, but gp.org is not to be found anywhere in Google’s results.
If you are a Google investor, please use your contacts in investor relations to find out what has happened here.
In a message to supporters, Green Party candidate for mayor of New York CityRev. Billy Talen writes that New York City is the nation’s biggest consumer of rain forest timber.
This Tuesday Oct 27th Reverend Billy joins with RainForest Relief, NYC Climate Action Group and Friends of Brad Will for a parade through Washington Square Park to draw attention to continued and unnecessary use of tropical rain forest timber for our benches and boardwalks.

In looking over email messages I came across one sent out in late September. It addresses Marina Silva’s possible presidential run in Brazil. Silva is an internationally known activist for the Amazon, and the people who live there. She recently joined the Brazilian Green Party.
Marina Silva, the charismatic rubber tapper who went on to become senator and Environment Minister, is weighing a presidential bid in Brazil´s 2010 election, according to multiple reports. Political observers say that while her chances are long, Silva´s entrance and focus on the environment could spur interest among Brazilians disenchanted by the Workers´ Party, the dominant part which has been tarnished lately by corruption scandals.

NewsBlaze covers the Green Party of California release on California’s water problems:
California Greens today said Governor Arnold Shwarzenegger has “stumbled” over the State’s water issues. They say the recent rains don’t fix the problems, because the problems are long-terms and deep-seated.
The following statement came directly from the Greens.
Recent heavy rains may solve home gardening dilemmas, but it won’t fix California’s water problems, and it won’t help Gov. Schwarzenegger understand the state’s deep-seated water troubles, the Green Party of California said in response to the governor’s call for a special session to deal with the water mess. A session that never materialized this week.
California’s most progressive political party approved, at its recent state convention, a new Water Planning Plank that would be “rational (and) workable.”
“It appears the governor is trying to spend money that California does not have on solutions that California does not need,” said Wes Rolley, Co-Chair, EcoAction Committee, Green Party US. “There are rational, workable solutions that will supply California’s people with water for decades. Unfortunately, the political system seems not to be interested in pursuing them.”

Green Part Senate candidate LeAlan Jones will be speaking in Rockford, IL at JustGoods, 201 Seventh St on Oct 25 at 2pm.
“This is the only thing I can do to have peace of mind,” is Jones’ response when asked why he is running for office. “I am looking at a community that is suffering because of a lack of genuine concern from their leaders. This isn’t about money or prestige. This isn’t about who gets to stand behind the political elite at a press conference. This is about who is going to stand behind the people.”
