Yesterday we launched a crowd funder to fund the costs of our European election campaign in SE England.
In just a matter of days, the UK will elect new MEPs to the European Parliament and it's vital that the Green Party in the South East of England keeps its long-standing MEP seat. A lot is at stake and that's why we're asking for your urgent support. The Green Party has no corporate donors or secret offshore funds: we rely entirely on your commitment and generosity for success in this election.
Yes to Europe
The Green Party is committed to remaining in the European Union - and to winning popular agreement for remaining through a People's Vote. In the South East we've had Green MEPs for 20 years, since Caroline Lucas became the first Green MEP in 1999. The Green Party is now the strongest UK Remain party in the European Parliament and the number one voice against the forces of Brexit and the right wing parties promoting it for their own ends.
No to climate change
This election is not just about Remain vs Brexit, despite the messages from the media and single-issue parties. The climate crisis presents mankind with its greatest-ever challenge. And that crisis - felt for years in other parts of the world - is coming to our shores. Parts of the South East England coast are threatened with rising sea-level erosion that will fundamentally alter our coastline and destroy centuries-old communities over the next ten years.
A message to the establishment
A Green vote is a powerful vote against the establishment that created the mess we're now in. From Brexit to our collapsing health service and struggling schools, and the coastal and rural communities that have been forgotten for decades by Westminster, the establishment seems to abandoned the people of the UK, including the South East of England. It has also allowed - sometimes invited - the rising tide of hate and racism that threatens the very nature of our society.
We’re different at the Green Party because big business and unions don't fund or control us. We don't have teh deep pockets of other parties. We need your help to make sure our Green MEPs can continue their incredible work - fighting climate change, species extinction and injustice at every corner. Whether you’re able to give us £10 or £500 - every single donation counts. Your contributions will help us keep our South East seat in Europe. And maybe elect more Green MEPs than ever before.
