National Campaign Launched to Unify Green Party, NDP

OTTAWA, April 6 /CNW/ - A nationwide multimedia campaign has just been launched to inspire the unification of the Green Party of Canada and the NDP.

Employing music videos, comedy, as well as conventional political speeches, the campaign intends to spark an eventual merger of the Green Party and NDP, with the short-term goal of forging an alliance and official cooperation between the two parties in the upcoming election.

The spearhead of the campaign is a music video, filmed on Parliament Hill, called "Canadian Revolution" which uses striking imagery and lyrical content to illustrate the ecological crises, as well as severe poverty affecting hundreds of thousands of Canadians.

A second video, called "GREENDP: Canadians For a United Party" uses humour to playfully mock the continued division between Canada's two leading progressive parties, with young children in orange and green t-shirts arguing over trivial and absurd matters, while footage of melting ice caps, deforestation, and homelessness on Canadian streets are spliced in to remind Green Party and NDP partisans of the life and death stakes that are to be fought over in this federal election.

A French re-mix of the song, "Révolution Canadienne" is also in the works with a still unnamed band from Quebec.  Supporters of a Green-NDP merger are being directed to a Facebook Group as a means to "vote for Unification."
