What are the Statement of Principles of the Saskatchewan Green Party?
As part of getting to know our party we will be posting a new principle every month. Continuing in our series on this our second featured principle this month is Social Justice. What does social justice mean to you and for our province?
If you want to have a more in-depth conversation about our principles come out to one of our upcoming community constituency meetings. Lets talk about what matters to you.
For a full listing of our Statement of Principles please go to: http://www.saskgreen.ca/statement_of_principles
We assert that the key to social justice is the equitable distribution of social and natural resources, both locally and globally, to meet basic human needs unconditionally, and to ensure that all citizens have full opportunities for personal and social development.
We declare that there is no social justice without environmental justice, and no environmental justice without social justice.
A just organization of the world and a stable world economy which will close the widening gap between rich and poor, both within and between countries; balance the flow of resources from South to North; and lift the burden of debt on poor countries which prevents their development.
The eradication of poverty, as an ethical, social, economic, and ecological imperative
the elimination of illiteracy.
A new vision of citizenship built on equal rights for all individuals regardless of gender, race, age, religion, class, ethnic or national origin, sexual orientation, disability, wealth or health.
