Subject: Re: [usgp-dx] GPUS Steering Committee Statement on the Dialog not Expulsion Caucus
To: National Committee affairs discussion list
The Steering Committee has taken the unusual step today of making a public statement. It denounces Greens for Dialogue Not Expulsion, the sole nationwide group of GPUS members organized to oppose the dis-affiliation of the Georgia state party.
The SC accuses DNE of espousing forbidden ideas attributed to radical feminists. But DNE hasn’t adopted such ideas; they are held by individuals, such as me. DnE members hold a variety of views on sex and gender and are unified by defense of grassroots democracy.
DNE's political position is limited to opposition to dis-accreditation of the GaGP and to advocacy of dialogue in place of administrative measures like expulsion. It has worked with the Georgia GP to prepare a defense brief and witness depositions.
What goal could the Steering Committee have in publicly condemning the only group of Greens that opposes the effort to remove a state party from the federation? Greens whose offense is to oppose expulsion of those holding forbidden views.
What effect on other potential dissenters in the GPUS will such a statement have, published less than a month before a vote on the Georgia matter?
Expect a reply from DNE to the charges made by the Steering Committee. The SC omits evidence; a likely reply will include a request for particulars.
To allow examination of evidence related to charges against DNE, I request that its URL be made available on the NC list. The Forum Managers have instructed me not to link to that site, however.
