After the last 12 months – dominated by the pandemic and Brexit – London, according to Green mayoral candidate Sian Berry, is in need of a new plan, a fresh start, and a serious response to the climate emergency.
“Only a Green mayor”, asserts Berry, “will act with the urgency these extraordinary times demand.”
But only through the power of small donations can the Greens’ big ideas reach all Londoners.
With knocking on doors not an option, Berry’s campaign is aiming to raise £20,000, which will pay for a Green presence in the election booklet sent to every Londoner, cover the cost of leaflets delivered in a coronavirus-safe way, and allow the Greens to reach target audiences on social media.
The Green Party, Berry emphasises, are a grassroots movement, not bought by big interests.
“We don’t have billionaire and corporate backers; we’re powered by people. Honest. Accountable. Transparent.”
Contributions keep the Greens competitive against the bigger parties, with just £20 helping them to reach 1,000 Londoners with campaign leaflets.
“I’ve got the ideas to make London the greenest city in the world,” says Berry. “We can put people and planet at the centre of our agenda’, but ‘it all starts with your support. Contribute to our campaign and let’s create a fresh start for London together.”
