Statement of the Global Greens: Refuse the Death Sentences in Egypt

There have been a succession of court rulings in Egypt applying the death penalty, most recently therecommendation by an Egyptian judge to execute 683 Muslim Brotherhood supporters on charges of murdering a police officer and committing violence in Al-Minya province. If implemented this would constitute a macabre world record for mass judicial executions in contravention of international law.

Russia has to stop the support to the illegally armed groups in Eastern Ukraine. Diplomatic negotiations need to be reinforced

The Global Greens are deeply concerned by the intensifying crisis in the Ukraine and express their solidarity with Ukraine’s democratic movement and with all its people. The crisis must be resolved through dialogue. All parties involved should do their utmost to negotiate a peaceful solution that respects Ukraine’s territorial integrity as well as the legitimate interests of the ethnic Russian population. The agreement reached by the United States, Russia, the European Union and the Ukraine in Geneva is far from perfect but it might be a first step to a more relaxed and safe climate under the strict proviso that all parties accept and adhere to this compromise.

Global Greens welcome International Court of Justice whaling decision

The Global Greens whole-heartedly welcome this week’s ruling by the International Court of Justice to end Japan’s so-called ‘scientific’ whaling in Antarctic waters and not grant future permits under the current research programme. In response to a case started by Australia in 2010, the Court found that Japan’s whaling program in the Southern Ocean was not scientific and was therefore illegal under the rules of the International Whaling Commission. This decision is the culmination of a decades-long campaign by Greens and community groups to stop commercial whaling in the Southern Ocean and allow whale populations to recover. The Japanese government has said it will abide by the Court’s ruling and the Greens hope that this will mark the beginning of the end of commercialwhaling world-wide.

Global Greens statement on the Iran Nuclear Agreement

In November 2013, Iran, the US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany, known as the P5+1, reached an interim agreement to halt Iran’s nuclear program for six months in return for the easing of sanctions on Iran. This nuclear deal has the potential to transform Iran’s international relations and enhance Middle East stability. The Global Greens cautiously welcome the agreement as a first step towards greater stability, peace and well-being for the people of Iran, the Middle East and the globe.
