25 Years of WIPP

March 26, 1999 is the date that the first shipment of transuranic waste was delivered to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in southeastern New Mexico. Instead of beginning the closure of the pilot plant, the Department of Energy wants to keep it open and expand it over the coming decades.Learn more history and what is being done to stop the expansion of nuclear waste storage in New Mexico from these groups: Los Alamos Study Group, Concerned Citizens for Nuclear Safety, Stop Forever WIPP.

2024 Presidential Nomination Process

Each state has its own election procedures.  In New Mexico, the Green Party is a minor party and nominates by convention.  We use the list of candidates published by the GPUS Presidential Candidate Support Committee (PCSC) for apportioning our delegates to the GPUS Presidential Nominating Convention.  There are six people seeking the Green Party nomination for President of the United States.  Some of them are not Greens but use the process that allows unaffiliated candidates or candidates with other parties to seek party lines in various states.  Links to the candidates’ web sites are listed below.  We plan to provide an opportunity to visit with candidates virtually later in the year.

GREENS:  Jorje Zavala*, Randy Toler*, Jill Stein*, Jasmine Sherman*

Non-GREENS:  Daví*, Robert Cooke

*Candidate or campaign has contacted GPNM.
