How can I support the Isle of Wight Green Party campaign?
There are so many ways you can do this.
- We have monthly meetings, held in Newport on a Monday evening, which non-members are very welcome to attend, listen to the issues and add their voice to the discussions.
- You could join the national Green Party (from £10 for a full year for those on a low wage or unwaged).
- You could donate £10 towards financing the bond which is needed for us to enter the General Election.
- You could even help by following me on Twitter, following the Isle of Wight Green Party and/or liking our Facebook page, and sharing our social media content with your friends.
- You could even help just by word of mouth and pointing people towards this web site (votevix.org), so they can find out for themselves.
We welcome any help – however small!
Aren’t the Green Party a bunch of lentil-weaving, sandal-wearing hippies obsessed with wind turbines?
Well, not all ;)
The Green Party hasn’t changed – but what they have been saying for years is increasingly resonating with a wider electorate.
Yes, there are Green Party guidelines about the environment and animal rights and world peace. But there are also very clearly set out policies on bread-and-butter, mainstream political issues such as energy security, health, housing, crime, education and tourism.
