Climate chaos is coming much quicker than was predicted. Recent flooding has forced familiies in the Monmouth constituency (and elsewhere) out of their homes. Without urgent, bold and decisive action, things will only get worse. Fortunately, Greens have the answers. Our programme of action will transform Britain, investing in 100% renewable energy, insulating homes, improving public transport, creating sustainable jobs and letting nature flourish.
But to do this, we need more Green MPs elected to Parliament. With your help, Ian Chandler can campaign to be the MP for the Monmouth consstituency.
We want to campaign in as many places as possible, but Monmouth is especially important. It is the constituency with the highest Green vote in Wales. Following pressure from Greens and others, the county council has declared a climate emergency. It has seen some of the biggest YouthStrike4Climate demonstrations in Wales. We know that the people of Monmouth are ready for change.
The Conservative seeking re-election, David Davies, argues against taking action on climate change. We need to ensure that his arguments are countered and give people a chance to vote for a different future.
Why Ian Chandler?
Ian stood in Monmouth for the Green Party in the 2017 general election and in the 2019 European elections. He lives in the constituency and campaigns all year round for the environment, including being a member of Transition Monmouth and co-founding the successful Plastic Free Monmouth campaign.
What do we need your donation for?
It costs a lot of money to stand in a election, but Greens don't get massive donations from billionaires banking on a crash-out Brexit or unions putting the brakes on a transformation to a green and sustainable economy. We rely on donations from people like you who care about our neighbours and the health of our communities and our planet. Please give what you can to help fund our campaigns - every little helps.
We need to pay a £500 deposit for each candidate to stand in the election. A simple A5 leaflet delivered free to every household in the constituency will cost a further £500. We also want to print 'Vote Green' posters and produce other campaign leaflets and materials. That is why we have set a target of £1,500 for this campaign. All donations go to the Gwent Green Party Election Fund to support candidates across Gwent in this and future elections.
