That Platform 2010 of the Green Party of the United States, in Chapter I, related to "Democracy,” Section E., related to "Foreign Policy," the section labeled: "1. Foreign Policy—Peace and Disarmament", is amended by re-designating paragraphs a. through t. as paragraphs b. through u., respectively, to accommodate a new paragraph a., which shall read:
a. Asserting that economic and social justice at home will never be possible while this global empire exists, the Green Party of the United States pledges to confront the American Exceptionalism used to justify U.S. taxpayer-financed military occupations which now stretch across 140 nations around the planet. We believe it's time to bring all U.S. armed forces home, to end our direct and proxy wars in Asia, Africa and Latin America, and to close down every one of the nation's thousand or so military bases outside our borders.


IMPLEMENTATION: Approval of this proposal will amend the 2012 Draft Platform, to be presented for approval at the 2012 Presidential Nominating Convention
