I’m still working my way through it – so far it looks like a worthy successor to the 2015 Manifesto, which was truly inspiring as a vision for the future of the UK.
Siân Berry, Co-Leader, Green Party of England and Wales writes:
“The Green Party 2019 manifesto is now here! If ever there was a time to vote Green, it’s now. Thank you to all our members who have helped make this ambitious but critical manifesto a reality, especially our dedicated Policy working groups.
Today, we’re proud to put forward a manifesto which puts us on track to make the whole country carbon neutral by 2030, while delivering social justice across Britain.
Ours is the most ambitious Green New Deal proposed anywhere in the world, and goes far further than other parties’ half measures or watered-down commitments.
While Labour falls back on the 2030 target, while the Conservatives continue to make things worse not better with road and airport expansion, while all the other parties are trying to catch up, we’re still racing ahead with the big ideas the future needs.
The Greens are clear about which path we must take as a country. And that’s why each and every Green MP elected this December will have the strongest manifesto as their programme of work for the new Parliament.
If you read this manifesto and feel inspired to be part of the Green movement, please join the Green Party. We are now 50,000 members strong and growing and we’d love to have you on board!
Thank you for all of your support.
