The Green Party is the only major political party in the UK that is committed fully to a life based on democracy and justice within the planet's limits.
The Green Party has always dared to be different - and we’ve always known the power of good ideas.
Unlike others, we know that our planet has environmental limits, we understand that not everyone wants to live to work, that inequality is not just unfair, but damaging to everyone in society. And we have the bold solutions which allow us to offer inspiration in this age of uncertainty.
Freedom of Movement
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 vote on the final deal and our place in Europe
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.
