Green Party candidates are standing in every constituency in Leeds to give everyone in Leeds the chance to vote for a zero carbon future inside a reformed European Union at this election.
The Green Party have had our best ever election results in Leeds this year, with 16% at the Euro Elections and 12% at the Council elections (just 200 votes behind the Lib Dems).
Please help us to build on these results to achieve our best ever General Election results as well.
A £100 billion a year Green New Deal to tackle the climate emergency
The climate emergency we're facing is the greatest threat to life on earth since the mass extinction of the dinosaurs. We're now at crunch time, where our actions over the next decade will determine whether mankind steps back from the brink of causing this mass extinction, and making life so much harder for all of humanity, or ploughs headlong into it.
The big 3 parties have spent 40 years tinkering at the edges of the problem, and while they're all making the right noises at election time, their records both in national government and when running Leeds City Council shows that none of them can be trusted by themselves to take the scale of action that's needed.
We need the strongest possible Green voice in Parliament, and challenging them at every hustings, and every election to hold them to their promises.
The Green Party candidates in Leeds are campaigning for a Green New Deal that would invest £100 billion a year into the measures necessary to transform the UK to a net zero carbon economy by 2030.
This will create well over a million new jobs in the biggest transformation this country has seen since the post war period, rebuilding our local railways, insulating homes, installing solar panels on 10 million roofs and transforming the Humber estuary ports into the world's biggest offshore wind hub, as we invest to harvest the biggest offshore wind resource in Europe.
A People's Vote to end 4 years of Brexit chaos & campaign to stay in the EU.
Our positive vision for Britain's zero carbon future would be made much more difficult and expensive to achieve if we leave the EU, as it needs huge levels of international co-operation, particularly with our nearest neighbours, to achieve it.
For this reason amongst many others, the Green Party is also campaigning to end the 4 years of Brexit chaos by holding a final binding referendum with an option to remain full democratic members of the EU on our current terms.
The Green Party believe that our best future lies as full democratic members of a European Union that we will continue to work to reform and improve from the inside.
A Green Vote is a vote that sends a strong positive message to Westminster to demand that they stop their antics, put Brexit back to the people to decide one way or the other, so the country can move on to the urgent task of transforming the UK into a zero carbon economy over the next decade.
This is a climate emergency, our planet is at stake, the solution won't wait any longer.
Please support The Green Party candidates to get this message across at this election in Leeds.
All funds raised from our initial target will go to fund the printing of freepost leaflets that Royal Mail deliver free to every household in Leeds Central, Leeds East, Leeds North East, Morley and Outwood and Pudsey constituencies.
