The Countdown to the General Election is on. We need to raise £1500 to run an effective Green campaign here in the Staffordshire Moorlands

by Staffs Moorlands Green Party in Leek, England, United Kingdom

This has been a very successful year for the Staffordshire Moorlands Green Party. We successful started the actions that resulted in the District Council declaring a Climate Emergency, and some of our members have been asked to join the Council Sub-committee on Climate Change. We exceeded all our expectations on vote shares in the District Council elections and got our first elected Parish Councillors in Horton. 

We want to build on our success this year and give people in the Staffordshire Moorlands the chance to vote for what they believe in. We want to use this election to promote the Green Party and what we stand for to even more people across the Staffordshire Moorlands. We don't get donations from corporations or interest groups, so can't do this without your help!

We selected Doug as our Prospective Parliamentary Candidate. He is an experienced Green Party campaigner and brings a wealth of experience. 

A university lecturer and campaigner, Doug, who lives in Stafford, has long been active in his workplace as a trade union activist, as well as working in a number of local organisations to support his local community.

"I am committed to making this election the climate emergency election. In 2018 we were told that we have 12 years to make the significant changes required to avoid climate catastrophe, and the next parliament must set the ground work for making those changes."

"The transition to a low carbon future needs to be a just one, we need to combine the major changes we need to make to avoid climate catastrophe with building a society that works for everyone. Our local carbon future needs to give us better public transport that caters for local needs, investing what is needed into health and social care, and improving the quality of life in our communities.

The Green Party has been at the forefront of the fight for a Green New Deal since it was first proposed in 2008, it is needed now more than ever to transform our economy replace fossil fuels with renewables and create thousands of good quality jobs right across the country."

Mr Rouxel said he and the Green Party are “the only party committed to tackling climate chaos as priority number one.” Other key Green campaign areas are a investment in the NHS, thousands of new low carbon homes, as well as “environmental policies that look ahead a hundred years, not just the next financial quarter”.

Did you know that it costs £500 to stand in a parliamentary election, even before other election expenses like advertising are considered?

We need the money not only to pay the £500 deposit but also to pay for a leaflet and other advertising and activities to help get our message across.
