The Green Party is live streaming the Annual National Meeting and Green Fest in Alfred, New York that begins this Friday August 5th. You can watch the live feed here and participate in the online chat that comes with it.
I will be arriving in Detroit Thursday afternoon. I am bringing a small handheld video recorder with the ability to upload short (1-3 minute) videos to youtube which I am hoping to embed here on Green Party Watch.
My question to our readers is: What do you want to see? Candidates? Green Party ‘leaders’? US Social Forum stuff? They won’t be live because I have to find a wireless and upload them, but they will be fresh. I have been thinking about doing 90 second “GPW Update” videos interspersed with general written updates, insights, etc.
Please comment here and tell me what you want to see on Green Party Watch from the Annual National Meeting.
This year’s Annual National Meeting is set for June 24-27, 2010, in Detroit, Michigan. The first three days of the 2010 Green Party Annual National Meeting will run concurrently with the U.S. Social Forum, a gathering of thousands of activists organizing people’s solutions to economic and ecological crisis. When you register for the 2010 Green Party meeting, you will automatically be registered for the U.S. Social Forum.
The convention website can be found here. Registration costs range from $105 to $175.

We’ll attempt to start streaming the meeting tomorrow so please do have the above link up and running on your computer. You can certainly have it running in the background while you do other things. It’s our first attempt and there may be issues with getting people setup, etc.
Please do take the time to watch. It opens the door to accessibility for those who can’t attend. It’s also a way for interested non Greens to learn about the party so do consider spreading the link.
If Craig and the GP Team get this to work they will be awarded honorary “Green Scout” Awards from us here at Green Party Watch!
