Carla, the Green Party candidate for the key seat of Bristol West, has launched her fundraising campaign following the confirmation that a General Election will take place on the 12th December.
Carla said: “Unlike the other political parties, the Green party doesn’t have backing from wealthy corporate donors or trade unions to rely on. Our support comes from grassroots activists and supporters giving small amounts that add up to big wins.”
The Green Party dramatically outperformed expectations in the recent local elections, helping to topple numerous Conservative and Labour council administrations across England and Wales. The recent European elections saw them win across the city of Bristol, ahead of the Liberal Democrats and knocking Labour and the Conservatives into fourth and fifth place respectively.*
Carla added: “This is the breakthrough moment. People want to send a clear message that they want a People’s Vote on Brexit, a strong campaign to remain in the EU, and real action to tackle climate change. The Green Party, and only the Green Party, is offering all three of those things. My message to voters is “Yes to Europe. No to Climate change.” The Greens can win in Bristol West, so get involved! The time is now!”
