Leader of Wales Green Party Anthony Slaughter is the party’s lead list candidate for South Wales Central in next year’s Senedd election. We have a real chance to get Greens elected to the Senedd next May. Help us make history.
In these uncertain times support for Wales Green Party is growing. People can see that tired old ‘business as usual’ politics has failed and are desperate for change. With your help and support we will run our biggest and most ambitious election campaign ever and make this historic breakthrough.
We need a Green Voice in the Senedd
We are living in challenging times. 2020 started with some stark reminders of the severity of the ongoing climate crisis. Wildfires raged across large swathes of the planet destroying communities and invaluable biodiversity. Other areas saw an increase in once rare extreme weather events leading to devastating flooding in communities worldwide, including here in Wales.
The climate crisis, climate emergency in not an abstract future threat. It is real. It is here and it is now.
And like the current global coronavirus pandemic it is the weakest and most vulnerable that suffer the most.
The ongoing Covid crisis has exposed the serious structural and systemic flaws in our society and highlighted the obscene and growing levels of inequality that are destroying communities. The coming severe financial recession, a recession that will be made all the worse here in the UK by the predictable chaos of a no deal Brexit crash out, will impact heavily on these communities leaving the weakest and poorest even more vulnerable.
This is why our radical Green voice is so crucial. Our vision of a just, sustainable society is truly transformative, it is the change the planet is crying out for. But noble ideas and good intentions are not enough. We need to be in a position to make our vision a reality. We need a Green voice in the room whenever decisions are being made that affect all our futures. We need, Wales needs, elected Green representation at every level of government.
And this is why next year’s Senedd election is so important. This is our chance, our opportunity to get our radical message heard, to truly engage with the people of Wales, with our communities, to challenge the stale ‘business as usual’ status quo. Our chance, our opportunity to get the elected Green representation in the Senedd that Wales so desperately needs.
A vote for the future
Next year 16 and 17 year old’s have a vote in the Senedd election. Long overdue this historical change will ensure that future generations will have a say in the decisions that will affect their futures. Our Green policies offer the solutions they’ll be looking for.
South Wales Central - We can do this
We have seen elected Greens in Westminster, the Scottish Parliament, the Northern Irish Assembly and the London Assembly holding power to account and pushing the radical change needed. Now it’s Wales' turn to get the Green representation our nation deserves.
Unlike other parties, we don’t have millionaire donors, donations from big business, or financial support from trade unions. We rely on you - our members and supporters to fund our campaigns. Your help will get our campaign off to a flying start. Your donations will help us pay for leaflets, placards, press adverts, videos and more, helping to get our Green message heard across South Wales Central.
Everything you can donate will boost our campaign in South Wales Central and get our Green message heard.
So please, donate what you can and help get our campaign of to a flying start and turn South Wales Green.

South Wales Central list Candidates are:
Top row - Lead list candidate Anthony Slaughter, second list candidate Helen Westhead

The legal bit - because we're a political party:
Please note all donations will go to Cardiff and Vale Green Party to help our campaign to elect Greens to the Senedd.
We're required to run permissibility checks on donations over £500. These will be completed as pledges are made. For the same reason, we cannot accept anonymous donations over £500.
If you make multiple donations to us, they may be aggregated for our reporting purposes.
Your details will appear in our election returns if valued over £500, and if you donate over £7500 your identity will appear on the Electoral Commission website.
Should the government decide for any reason to cancel the holding of these Senedd elections, sadly we will not be in a position to refund any donations made to the campaign.
