Whether we travel for work, for study, for love, or for any of a hundred other reasons, we are all enriched by freedom of movement.
An extreme Brexit puts many of the environmental protection laws we currently have at risk.
The terms of Brexit weren’t on the ballot paper. We need a people’s poll on the final deal and our place in Europe.
"I’ve been a Green Party member over 6 years now: my partner was looking for something meaningful to do outside work and I suggested we both join the Greens. I’ve had so many opportunities as a Green member I would never have had, and met so many people that will inspire me forever."
Clare Lorraine Phipps
I joined a party that was ‘the least bad of the biggest two’ where I lived, but I quickly realised that I couldn’t campaign for a party that didn’t share my commitment to environmental and social justice. The planet doesn’t have enough time for compromise or to hope to change other parties from the inside.
I joined in 2004 to counter a government that had taken us into an illegal war, ignored huge protests against war, privatisation and neoliberalism. Since then I’ve stood for election, been a councillor, been part of local and national campaigns, and been one of those many radical dissenting voices.
What the Green Party means to me is that, it is genuinely the party that stands for people and social justice, and I know I can add more value the great work the party is already doing.
