Carla stands for…
Carla’s position on Brexit is clear and unambiguous – Yes to a People’s Vote, Yes to campaigning for the UK to Remain in Europe. Unlike the Labour candidate, Carla and the Greens have consistently argued for a People’s Vote to prevent a Brexit that will be a disaster for workers, environmental protections, and the economy.
We need urgent action to avoid catastrophic climate change. Carla delivered the first climate emergency motion in Europe – leading the way for governments, councils and businesses across the continent. We need relentless campaigners like Carla in Westminster to force the government to live up to its promises and deliver a better future for people and planet.
The Conservative claim that austerity has ended is a sham. Schools, hospitals, public transport and local services need to be properly funded. As a local councillor, Carla has successfully campaigned to protect libraries and parks funding, as well as the ‘Crisis Prevention Fund’ that prevents homelessness and the Council Tax Reduction Scheme that helps some of the most vulnerable people in the city. As our MP, Carla will stand up for the services we rely on.
“Bristol is an amazing, vibrant place. We should be a beacon to the rest of the country and the world, showing how by working together we can solve the problems that sometimes seem insurmountable.
Our city is talented, hard-working, imaginative, and kind, and these are the values I will try to bring as your MP. I’m a good listener, and I have an open mind. I care about people and I will always do my best to help.
As your MP, I would work for you. Green MPs aren’t whipped, so my career isn’t reliant on toeing a party line. I won’t be bought, bribed or bullied into backing a leader I don’t believe in. I would be free to listen to my constituents and vote with my conscience.”
