Vote Green 2

12 November 2002

The Wales Green Party will be focussing on election success at its AGM this Saturday. Held at the Heyokah Centre on Humprey Street, Swansea, the meeting is open to members of the public from 11:30am. Green Party Welsh Assembly candidate Martyn Shrewsbury will be urging Welsh voters to “Vote Green 2.” He explains “If people vote for their usual parties first in the Assembly elections and the Green Party second then they’ll be able to vote in an alternative voice.

“We are not saying don’t vote for your usual party, but we are saying vote for the Green Party, too.”

Darren Johnson, GLA member, will be making a speech. “People in Wales have always been sympathetic to the ideals of the Green party. There is growing dissatisfaction with Labour in Wales. By voting Green you can really make a difference.”

Green Peer, Lord Beaumont of Whitley, who is also making a speech added “This is a very exciting time for the Welsh Greens. Our opposition to the proposed incinerators in South Wales coupled with our natural affinity with small farmers means that many voters naturally gravitate toward us.”

Swansea man Martyn Shrewsbury concluded “This is a real opportunity for Welsh people to make their voices heard and we welcome anyone who is interested to attend the AGM.”
