Greens stand with South Central Farmers

The Green Party of California (GPCA) on Thursday put out a press release in support of the urban farmers who are being threatened with eviction from the South Central Farm:
"We support the farmers' resistance to eviction, to relocation, to environmental racism," said Linda Piera-Avila, secretary of the Los Angeles Greens.

"In the shadow of downtown's skyscrapers, in an economically disadvantaged area, their farm stands as a testament to the power of multi-racial community building, local food production, the environmental value of green open space and social justice in the face of corporate greed and lack of civic accountability," she added.
Meanwhile, USC-TV interviewed Greens Nativo Lopez, Peter Camejo and Jason Neville at the farm.
