The Northern Spring is supporting The Green Party candidate Will Patterson to be the Greater Manchester Metro Mayor

Will Patterson, Green Party, Manifesto

Will Patterson – New candidate for Greater Manchester Metro Mayor contest

Greater Manchester Elects on Thursday 4th May 2017, the same day as the Local Elections, at this very important time for UK politics

The Northern Spring selects the Green Party as the prime candidate on manifesto, hustings performances, social media interaction, media presence and general style of the campaign

With no other socialist candidates on the ballot, Will Patterson is therefore the unity candidate for all Greater Manchester socialists, and a chance for the Greater Manchester public to vote for hope and change

The Northern Spring supports Jeremy Corbyn for Prime Minister and the formation of a national Labour Government, however, in this regional contest we feel that Greater Manchester needs a grassroots figurehead who is not connected to big business in the same way that Labour, Liberal Democrats and Conservatives are

This could be seen right at the very start of the campaign when Burnham (Labour), Brophy (Liberal Democrats) and Anstee (Conservatives) all unashamedly dashed off to swanky, loadsamoney per ticket hustings !! It can also be seen at the corporate Citizens UK Election Stunt event at The Lowry on Salford Docklands on Monday 1st May 2017

We feel that the combination of the three biggest parties, Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrats are responsible for the so-called “Northern Powerhouse”, a corporate land-grab and development programme that has no social license amongst the people of Greater Manchester, and the North of England

Andy Burnham (Labour) has called for Greater Manchester to be transformed into a Beacon of Social Justice and we believe that a Green Party Mayor is the best chance of this happening

Burnham has called for a Peoples’ Green Summit to be held in Greater Manchester, but with a caveat of “within the first year of office”, however, a member of the General Public challenged this time limit at the hustings and the Green Party Mayoral candidate not only agrees with this, but is likely to have the political nous to host a Peoples’ Green Summit within 100 days

In a time of multiple national political polls, there seem to have been no polls whatsoever conducted of the Greater Manchester electorate regarding voting intentions, although you can put a bet on at the bookies!!

Therefore, the Greater Manchester Mayoral Result could be a lot more interesting than the mainstream media think, especially as we are in the era of political change

At the Hustings event on Friday 28th April 2017 in Manchester “What About The Environment?” all the four Mayoral candidates present are saying that we need a Green Greater Manchester Mayor – so why not vote for the real deal ?

The Green Party Greater Manchester Mayoral Campaign has been a collaborative one, due to the original candidate Deyika Nzeribe passing away at the turn of the year

Here are a number of links to the original launch of the Green Party Greater Manchester Mayoral campaign

Deyika Nzeribe Speech, Manchester, Saturday 12th November 2016
Event: United Against Fracking Event

“We need to make sure that no matter who is President of the United States, whoever is in Number 10, the shale gas industry is not allowed to hoodwink the public into believing that fracking is any kind of part of an energy strategy for the future”

“We need to ensure that the democratic voice of the people in Lancashire is respected – we also need to remember that you are part of the long line of activists from all around the world, protecting Earth, air and the water against degradation…Barton Moss, Balcombe, Roseacre Wood, the South Africa wild coast, the XL pipeline, North Dakota…

“You might not be aware of it but you are in the heart of the Northern Powerhouse, historical birthplace of the industrial revolution – the Green Party vision, my vision, for a Northern Powerhouse is one powered by clean, green, renewable energy, produced here in the north and which creates more jobs per pound invested than shale gas ever can; clean energy powered by its people, its wind, waves and daylight/sun!”

“You can’t be against fracking and for building on Green Belt. You can’t be against fracking and for expanding the airport. You can’t be for and against the planet…”

Deyika Nzeribe (1966-2017) A Tribute
