New stretch target


Spring is coming and our world is changing. And we need to change with it.

The election in May is our chance to do that. 

Who am I?

I’m Zack Polanski, Green Party London Assembly Candidate.

In my last 15 years in London, I've been fully immersed in London's gig economy. I've worked as an actor, youth counsellor, communications trainer and promoted nightclubs.

At the heart of everything I do, I believe in the power of art to change hearts and minds. I also believe we need to challenge & grow our political institutions to rise to the challenges we face in society - particularly from our climate crisis.

What have I done?

In the last few years I've been doing a lot of listening. Listening to everyone from community groups, fellow campaigners and most of all - individuals from all over London.

It’s this capacity to listen and then respond which has meant I've been deeply involved with:

  • Protecting our community spaces - founding director of the Save the Black Cap campaign (historic LGBTQIA+ pub)
  • Protecting our trees & green spaces. I've met with community residents & been out on the front line defending their rights to a healthier environment.
  • I've been a spokesperson with Make Votes Matter - the campaign for Proportional Representation as our democracy is badly broken & needs fixing.
  • Out on the front line with campaign groups concerned about the Climate Emergency. Standing in solidarity with Extinction Rebellion and the school strikers.
  • As a spokesperson for the British Red Cross - I care deeply about ending racialised policing and have been calling for an end to the phoney war on drugs. Black Lives Matter.
  • And most recently I've been out on the picket line with Care Home Staff who are striking - dancing and chanting in the snow - because they deserve at least a Living Wage.

What am I asking you for?

1612199413_delivering_board_cropped.png

We’ve launched an urgent campaign to raise funds so we can run our most effective campaign ever. We need to raise £2,000 to reach voters and get me elected.

The Green Party, unlike the Labour Party and the Conservatives, don’t have billionaire and corporate backers. We’re not bought by big interests. We’re powered by people. 

We’re funded by you. Honest. Accountable. Transparent. 

Your contributions keep us competitive with the bigger parties. They can help elect a surge of Greens to City Hall in May. 

I am part of a brilliant team standing for the London Assembly, led by Green Candidate to be Mayor Sian Berry. A dynamic group of campaigners, environmentalists and activists.

We can win

In 2000, when the London Assembly was formed - we had 3 Green Assembly Members.

At the last election in 2016 though, we've achieved 2 but not quite the third.

In the last 4 years - we have seen Brexit, a pandemic, a rising consciousness of Black Lives Matter and a big conversation about how to take on our Climate Emergency.

Conversations will not be enough, though. We need Green representation.

This election is different. London uses a system of Proportional Representation and with your help, we can win, at least, the third seat.

With your support, I can take these challenges directly to the mayor and work to find the complex solutions that our complex challenges need.

Why back the Greens

1612202481_climate_emergency.png

Greens don't pride themselves on competition. But on collaboration.

We don't want power over people. But we do believe in people power.

And we believe that global problems, require global solutions. At our hearts, we are proud internationalists that believe in an open hearted, generous, inclusive - and above all, kind - society.

There is no environmental justice without social, racial and economic justice too.

Our campaign has big ideas. We’re going to make London the greenest, kindest city in the world. We’ve got a clear plan to keep London moving. We have fresh thinking for housing.

In this crisis so many people are questioning business as usual. People are rethinking their voting habits. Our campaign is ready to win and make a Greener, kinder city.

What will I do when elected? 

Everything on this page. And more. Over and over again. I'll keep turning up every day to listen to Londoners.

I will give a huge focus to listening to hidden Londoners. The people who are so often not heard from or seen.

I will amplify the voices of the marginalised and the oppressed. People who are really struggling - I'll make sure that I've got their back.

I will relentlessly work to stamp out racism, homophobia, misogyny, transphobia, antisemitism and Islamophobia - and all forms of hate crime.

I will listen to those who feel they need support and work to find practical solutions to make the lives of Londoners easier every day.

I am standing on a platform with Sian Berry who as Mayor will:

  • protect renters rights,
  •  clean up our public transport system
  •  ensure London is a leading example of how to tackle the climate crisis.

This is alongside an exciting manifesto with the power of good ideas which includes a Universal Basic Income, a People's Land Commission and a vision of zero deaths on London's roads.

I will demonstrate the power of a green in the room. Please support me in being elected as your  Assembly Member  - London needs a breath of fresh air.

Your donations can help our big ideas reach all Londoners

We’re aiming to raise £2,000 and your donations will transform West Central London and our campaign. They’ll help us reach as many voters as possible. To keep spreading our message of hope for new possibilities and change.

We need £1,000 to pay for my deposit to ensure that there is a Green on the ballot speaking out against the Climate Crisis and speaking up for the most vulnerable in our society.

We also need a further £1,000 to pay for our campaign. Because of the pandemic, we can't knock on doors. And although the bigger parties can pay for paid delivery, we rely on our amazing volunteers to drop our leaflets off door to door.

In 2021, social media campaigning is now a huge part of the election cycle. We need money to fund our targeted ads & to grow our mailing list so that we can get our Green message out to every corner of West Central London.
