Green Party support Climate Strike in Worcester

25 September 2019

Louis Stephen spoke at the Climate Strike in Worcester on Friday 20th September. 

Louis said:
"Climate change is real. 97% of climate scientists are telling us this – we ignore experts at our peril.
The government has slashed funding for PV, is continuing to build roads and railways, expanding heathrow and fracking the very ground for shale gas.

We can all do things personally to save carbon but the government has to support us. The Green Party believes that we can't have infinite growth on a finite planet. That infinite growth is fuelled on debt and that debt is making us poorer.

The truth is that the alternative to this business as usual state is very positive world it is the Green New Deal where we invest in:

  • Public transport
  • Properly insulated homes
  • Good food that is less intensively farmed
  • Builds communities that look out for each other
  • That has work that is 4 day week, that you can retire before you drop down dead.
  • That values are teachers, nurses doctors and everyone in the caring sector.

A different world is possible and we, you are more powerful than you realise. Get active, campaign and whoever you vote for please vote for what you believe in."

Petition: Cycle parking at Worcester City Museum

Worcester City Museum has no public cycle parking. The City Museum is situated on a cycle lane. Cycle parking would mean that City Museum visitors can make sustainable transport choices and help ease the City's traffic congestion.
