HARD HATS ON - AND READY TO BUILD A GREENER EUROPE

Green Party election rally, Norwich, Monday 18th May

Green Party County and Euro election candidates will be in central Norwich on Monday 18 May, with their green hard hats, overalls, ladders, drills and spanners – and ready, if elected, to build a lasting, ‘Greener Future’.

A rally of candidates and supporters will assemble in the Haymarket, Norwich at 11.00 am. Many of the Greens’ 51 candidates for the Norfolk County Council elections and the party’s top three Eastern region candidates for the European elections will be there, before spreading throughout the city speaking to residents who are looking for a positive alternative to the three Westminster parties.

A Green ‘construction crew’ will construct a ‘soapbox’ stage - another element of the party’s diverse campaigning - which has included traditional and modern methods, from door-to-door canvassing to blogs, twitters and website video-clips.

Monday's event comes just before voting starts for the County and European elections, when postal voters receive their ballot papers. The Greens are confident of gains in the county elections, especially in Norfolk and there is growing belief that Norwich city councillor Rupert Read, top of the Greens’ Eastern candidates list, could become the region’s first Green MEP.

At the Haymarket rally, the Green Party candidates will be setting out their plans for a greener Europe, based on a policies which could promote a million new jobs in the UK by directing local, national and European investment into a nationwide home and business insulation programme, improved public transport, renewable energy production and localised food supplies - a way out of the recession which will also help prevent disastrous climate change (see "Green Bank Note" below).

Rupert Read said

"There is a mood for change across Britain and Europe. The European wide network of Green parties, already with 43 MEPs, is ready to give new direction to our economies and societies, slashing waste, reforming industrial and agricultural policy and directing support towards sustainable ways of living, providing lasting solutions not constant crisis management.

In Britain, there is understandably a lot of public anger with the other parties at present. I hope people will respond by voting for the Green Party as a positive alternative, rather than giving protest votes to isolationist or extremist parties which offer only hate not hope.

We want to clean up politics, not just litter. We need a much tighter system of regulation over politicians' allowances in Brussels and Westminster and we also need to curb and regulate influence over our parliaments.

We will invest in clean, green energy to power the nation and end the government inaction on climate change – an imminent danger to our way of life. Greens are good for you - in Eastern England and across Europe."
