GREEN EURO CANDIDATE EXTENDS LOCAL BUSINESS SUPPORT AT 'FEDERATION OF SMALL BUSINESSES' DINNER IN CAMBRIDGE

 
NEWS RELEASE: GREEN EURO CANDIDATE EXTENDS LOCAL BUSINESSES SUPPORT AT 'FEDERATION OF SMALL BUSINESSES' DINNER

Norwich Councillor Rupert Read, prospective Green Party MEP for the East, will be attending a dinner this Thursday evening hosted in Cambridge by the Federation of Small Businesses, continuing the Green Party's strong support of local businesses throughout the region and around the country.  The FSB represents 18,500 small business owners across the East of England, supporting local trade in the face of local-economy crippling giant multinational corporations and supermarkets. The FSB invitation is a sign of how seriously small businesses take Cllr. Read's chances of being elected next summer.

Councillor Read said

"I'm especially happy to have been invited along to the FSB dinner, an organisation that I support wholeheartedly.  Local businesses strengthen the economy of a community by creating jobs, recycling money back into the area, providing consumer choice and competition and investing in local infrastructure.  

"The Green Party are the only political Party that opposes the multinational takeover of our towns and cities and actively supports local businesses from European to the council level.  Green Party leader Caroline Lucas MEP is forcing the EU to investigate unfair supermarket domination of our streets and demanding tough new rules to protect producers, small businesses and rural economies (1), while 2008 London Mayoral candidate Siån Berry was endorsed and supported by the London branch of  the FSB during the Mayoral campaign (2).

"If elected next June, I will join Caroline Lucas and the European Greens in the EU in fighting to support local business around the region and standing up to giant, bullying supermarkets."
