More details
On Nov. 22 2013, it will be precisely 6 months until 'E-Day' 2014, European Election Day across Eastern Region, across Britain, across Europe. We have 6 months from that date on in which to convince enough voters to go Green to elect me as our first ever MEP in this Region, to follow in the footsteps of Caroline Lucas, Jean Lambert and Keith Taylor in neighbouring Regions. Can YOU make a significant donation to enable us to hit our interim fundraising target, so as to make this possible? More Green MEPs - and in particular one in this Region - will enable us to fight fracking, to put into action a Green New Deal, to stand up for animals and for future generations... Please help by signing (and publicising further) this pldege, today!

  • Reasonably convinced we're screwed* because most folks are more concerned with the day-to-day than what's five years away -- and the current broken political system panders to that -- but one has to keep on trying...

  • There is (some) hope and idealism about: we just need to tap into it. People need to believe we can win this one. We can!

  • Thanks for these great comments!

    The Euro-elections are our big chance, because they are a PR election...
