Belper Greens candidate John Devine was interviewed by BBC TV at the EMGP conference in Nottingham yesterday.
Several members of the Mid Derbyshire Greens attended the conference which had over three times as many people as expected turn up! This really reflects the overall surge in local Green Party membership as well as nationally – which has grown to more than 25,000, with the number of young greens more than doubling! This has a lot to do with young voters increasingly wanting to make their voices heard on the subjects of austerity, education and the Citizens Income.
Natalie Bennett, the leader of the Green Party will be visiting Belper tomorrow (Monday 17th Nov) to meet with students studying Government and Politics at Belper School & Sixth Form Centre and to later host a public meeting and Q&A session at No. 28 in the Belper Market Place (7 pm until 8:30 pm – All welcome).
Please contact John Devine (07932 576159) or Sue MacFarlane (07774 004240) for more details. Both candidates will be present at tomorrow’s public meeting.
