GREEN PARTY LAUNCHES MANIFESTO FOR WELSH ASSEMBLY ELECTION
Wales Green Party will launch its Manifesto for the Welsh Assembly Election at the Norwegian Church, Cardiff Bay on the morning of Thursday 12th April.
The bilingual event will include speeches by Green Party Principal Speaker Dr Derek Wall and lead candidates from across Wales. The party will be highlighting its radical stance on climate change, economics, energy, transport and peace.
Ann Were, Spokesperson for Wales Green Party said, “Green issues have never been higher on the political agenda. Every party is putting on green clothes these days. But it remains to be seen how effective this ‘New Green’ agenda will be in dealing with the impact of Climate Change.
“Greens have been discussing these issues, and developing solutions for over 20 years now. We have the answers to all the questions that the other parties have only just begun to ask.
“Experience across the UK shows that it needs a Green presence on our assemblies and councils to ensure that the challenges of climate change are faced up to by the other parties.
“In the European Parliament, Scottish Parliament, London Assembly and in local councils across England Greens are already delivering the necessary measures. In March the first Green Assembly Member was elected in Northern Ireland. On May 3rd people in Wales have the opportunity to make history by electing their first Green Assembly Members and giving Wales a Strong Green Voice.”
Dr Wall will formally launch the Manifesto, ‘One Wales, One Chance’ at 1030. There will be opportunities for photographs and interviews with the candidates at 09:00, and again after the launch at 11:15. Dr Wall will also be available for interviews from 11:15.
Printed copies of the Manifesto will be available at the launch. Soft copies are available on request to the Wales Green Party Press Office – contact details below.
