Snap General Election is a chance to elect progressive voices, says Young Greens
18 April 2017
Theresa May has called for a snap general election, the second in just over two years, to take place on the 8th of June.
The Young Greens are calling on the country to use the opportunity to re-elect their MP Caroline Lucas and to elect more Greens into Westminster.
"In the wake of Brexit, the Greens are the only party offering credible, sustainable and progressive solutions," co-chair and former international officer Sam Murray says. "It is vital that Lucas keeps her seat in Brighton Pavillion, and our chances of more MPs are better than ever. Molly Scott Cato MEP is our target seat in Bristol West - having her voice in Parliament would help us offer the genuine alternative which Labour have repeatedly failed to do."
"This is election is a chance for us to say enough is enough," says co-chair Hannah Clare. "Since forming a Government in 2010, we have seen continual attacks on young people by the Conservatives. By voting Green on June 8th, you vote for a cleaner, brighter and fairer future. You vote for a party that stands up for people and the planet. A party that stands up against tuition fees, stands up for migrants, and will support public services."
Amongst other target seats, the Green Party are aiming to elect Caroline Lucas for Brighton Pavilion and Molly Scott Cato MEP for Bristol West.
