GE2017: Important Seats & Volunteering

Volunteer to help the Green Party in the 2017 General Election

“The Green Party is 99% made up of volunteers – this is how we’ve been running for over 40 years. There is so much to do to win elections, we rely on volunteers and welcome your help.  Whatever skillset or ability you have, you will be an asset to us.
Help locally by canvassing or leafleting on the build up to elections, or help the national or regional party in their office.”

In 2015, Green Party candidate Darren Hall came in second in Bristol West. With 17,227 votes, he trailed Labour’s Thangam Debbonaire by 5,673 votes. In 2017, Molly Scott Cato will contest Bristol West for the Greens.

“Molly is an economist, writer, and Green MEP for South West England. She wants to see our NHS, our schools, our railways, and other public services in public hands; a fair and resilient local economy that puts people and local jobs first; better quality, affordable, secure housing that meets local demand; affordable energy and radical action to tackle climate change. Molly fought hard for justice and environmental rights in the European Parliament. Now she wants to speak out for Bristol.”
