WASHINGTON, DC -- The Green Party has posted a new page featuring video links of Green presidential candidates, including debates and forums.

The address of the video page is http://www.gp.org/2008-elections/presidential-videos.php. The page will be updated regularly with new video as more Green presidential campaign events take place around the US.

Six Green candidates are on various state ballots for the Green nomination, which will be decided at the party's National Nominating Convention in Chicago, July 10-13.

The video page currently has links to video clips of the January 13 Northern California Green Presidential Debate at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco http://www.gp.org/2008-elections/president/sf_debate.php, and a January 5 forum with candidates Kat Swift and Jesse Johnson in Minnesota http://www.gp.org/2008-elections/president/Minneapolis-debate.php.

The page also carries a link to audio of the entire San Francisco debate http://www.gp.org/2008-elections/display.php?ID=25.

An additional page has been opened at the Green Party's blog http://greenpages.wordpress.com/ where visitors can post comments on the videos. The comment page address is http://greenpages.wordpress.com/2008/01/17/san-francisco-green-presidential-debate-january-13th-2008/.
