The six party guiding principles are Ecological Wisdom; Social Justice; Participatory Democracy; Non Violence; Sustainability; Respect for Diversity

(A) Ecological Wisdom:

  • That we learn to live within the ecological and resource limits of the planet
  • That we protect animal and plant life, and life itself that is sustained by the natural elements: earth, water, air and sun
  • Where knowledge is limited, that we take the path of caution, in order to secure the continued abundance of the resources of the planet for present and future generations

 (B) 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 our countries;
  • Advocating for the balance the flow of resources from South to North; and lift the burden of debt on poor countries which prevents their development.

  • Elimination of illiteracy
  • Create 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

(C) Participatory Democracy:

  • Through individual empowerment through access to all the relevant information required for any decision, and access to education to enable all to participate
  • Breaking down inequalities of wealth and power that inhibit participation
  • Building grassroots institutions that enable decisions to be made directly at the appropriate level by those affected, based on systems which encourage civic vitality, voluntary action and community responsibility

  • That all citizens have the right to be a member of the political party of their choice within a multi-party system

(D) Nonviolence:

  • Advocate for a comprehensive concept of national and global security, which gives priority to social, economic, ecological, psychological and cultural aspects of conflict, instead of a concept based primarily on military balances of power

(E) Sustainability:

  • Ensuring that the rich limit their consumption to allow the poor their fair share of the earth's resources
  • Redefining the concept of wealth, to focus on quality of life rather than capacity for over-consumption
  • Creating a national economy which aims to satisfy the needs of all, not the greed of a few; and enables those presently living to meet their own needs, without jeopardizing the ability of future generations to meet theirs
