Statement, Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand, March, 1999
New Zealand Greens are disappointed that yesterday's German Green Party conference backed the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia. "The German Greens are out of kilter with Greens around the world, who have favoured peaceful alternatives to NATO's campaign," said Green Party Foreign Affairs spokesperson Keith Locke. The New Zealand Green Party sent a message to the German Green conference. We said that "NATO's air bombardment has proved disastrous, particularly for the ethnic Albanians. The bombing has dramatically speeded up the "ethnic cleansing" and marginalized the democratic opposition in Serbia."
