The Green Party will fight for change in these key ways:
Maintaining public spending on the services that we all need.
The government needs to invest to maintain jobs and help to ensure that we don’t fall into a double-dip recession.
Building the pressure for a real global initiative to tackle climate change.
We will press for a fair, ambitious and legally binding agreement to cut carbon emissions and insist that Britain leads the way in developing renewable energy technologies.
Cutting unemployment by creating one million jobs.
We propose major initiatives to improve public transport and provide free insulation in every home, which could save each family around £150 a year in fuel bills.
Calling for the cancellation of the planned Trident replacement.
We are fundamentally opposed to wasting billions of public money on this deadly and unnecessary weapon.
Nuclear weapons should have no place in Britain’s future.
Giving every child the best possible chance in life.
We will press for schools to be properly funded and accountable to parents and local authorities.
Fair pensions and free social care for older people.
We will fight for a decent basic pension for all – and free care and support for older people.
Giving students a fair deal.
Greens in Parliament will fight for higher education available to all, not just those who can afford it. We’ll oppose student fees and support grants, not loans.
Protecting human rights and stopping unjust, unnecessary wars.
We will demand a progressive foreign policy and the withdrawal of UK troops from Afghanistan.

” The election of the first ever Green MP represents a truly historic moment. We made our breakthrough with the backing of people like you who want a new kind of politics based on honesty, justice and fairness…. now every new member who joins us will give us a stronger voice in Parliament…”

Our support network
We depend on the support of our members for all the work we do – we don’t get donations from big corporates and unions like other parties.
The financial support provided through membership is what keeps us going. It makes our campaigns and direct action for social and environmental justice possible.
Our members across the country are already making a real difference on a local level – we’ve listed some of the achievements of Green Councillors below – we hope they will inspire you to join us. They show the positive effects of the Green Party and that, together, we can make a difference.
- We set up solar panels on public buildings in Kirklees, and on primary schools in Lewisham.
- In Brighton we’ve helped to set up community centres, with activities for local residents and services for older people.
- Greens secured an NHS dentist for Stowmarket in Suffolk after the existing dental practise left the NHS.
- In Leicester we secured free school dinners and increased the budget for playgrounds in Oxford.
- We set up a budget of £3 million to improve road safety in Kirklees and established a preferential parking scheme for low emission vehicles.
- Green councillors fought successfully for more affordable housing to be built in Mid Suffolk
- In Bradford councillors secured £300,000 to fund free cavity wall and loft insulation for older residents
- In Brighton councillors blocked a 10% licensing fee increase for street traders and farmers markets.
- Greens in Islington set up a programme of new apprenticeships.
- In Lewisham and Norwich, councillors successfully campaigned for a living wage to help tackle poverty.
- Greens pushed for apprenticeships and training schemes to be included in all council construction contracts in Brighton, it is now standard practice.
Together we are a powerful force for change.
UNIVERSITY OF SALFORD MANCHESTER
Star date: 15th September 2011
SALFORD UNI CAMPUS SPLATTERED WITH MANCHESTER LOGO
Back in July when the Salford Star exclusively broke the story of how the University of Salford was adding `Manchester’ to its logo, a spokesperson for the Uni got in touch to say that… “it would not be necessary to include this locational device on signage on and around the campus”.
Er, our spies have been out and about the campus today and our photos show a slightly different story…
