Northern Party Candidates Elizabeth Clarkson and James Walsh wish all our fellow progressive candidates good luck and positivity for the General Election and Local Elections
The world is changing very quickly, the global green movement, Syriza, Podemos and South America are all big examples of progressive change
In the UK, the people have experienced 5 years of an unpopular ConDem government but during this time of adversity, love and humanity have shone through, and it is obvious that the UK needs a new direction
We feel that a new, progressive society is forming in the UK, as engagement with politics and political action is on the increase
The “old politics” and corporate media are being rejected and replaced, the internet gives freedom to research and find solutions, and social media gives the resources to communicate
On the campaign trail we have met many inspirational people, activists and campaigners doing self-less acts such as camping in fields during the cold winters to make sure that the people of Lancashire do not have to face the same fracking problems as the people of USA and Australia. They are ordinary people doing extraordinary things for our future generations.
We know that there are many candidates out there, people with good hearts who want to represent the people, who are working hard for the good of humanity and a sustainable future for our planet
Our forward looking Northern Party want devolved powers for us northerners so that we can govern our own health, education, economy and environment in a positive way that suits our needs and support a sustainable North
We wish all our progressive colleagues good luck and positivity for the General Election and local elections, and that we get a positive result for all the people.
