Go Team Glasgow!
We are incredibly chuffed to have reached our intial crowdfunding target! Any further funds we receive will go towards campaigning even harder in the Glasgow and West of Scotland region plus help us get revved up for the next battle: Holyrood 2016!
See you in the polling booths!
Glasgow and West of Scotland Branch
Did you know it costs £500 to field one candidate? Support democracy by helping us provide the option to vote for something different.
About the project
For the first time ever Glasgow and West of Scotland Greens have committed to standing 8 candidates throughout the region. We are extremely proud to be able to offer people the chance to vote for us but, as a small and ethically focussed party, we can't rely on non-doms and big business donations to clear the path to democracy for us.
We are looking to raise £2,000 from social media crowdfunding. This money will go towards fielding candidates and spreading the word about the Green message through leafletting, canvassing and events. Our members have already been grafting away to pick up the bulk of our costs but we do need that final push from all those supporters and activists out there who believe in equality not poverty, public services in public hands and power to communities.
If elected, our candidates will work for a Living Wage, rising to £10 an hour by 2020, public ownership of our railways and a more democratic economy. We’ll reject austerity and show that there is a better way than making the rest of us pay for the failures of the banks, big business and a political elite.

Please do take the time to donate, every little helps, and don't forget to share this appeal far and wide.
