This time last week, the world saw one of the largest days of climate action ever. From the heart-warming scenes of shoes left where the people could not march in Paris, to a 50,000 strong crowd in London, and the hundreds that marched for change here in our very own county.

All party members set policy and have equal rights to vote etc. the same as any other member from the moment they join. The core values of the party are set out here and include policies for a sustainable society and the philosophical basis of the party.

The sun shone on us Greens last weekend as we travelled down to Bournemouth in our thousands for the Autumn Green Party Conference, the first since the election, and the first since Corbynmania grabbed the nation. So there was plenty to talk about.
Written by Dan Hill, Andover Green Party.
With the election of a red Labour leader, many Greens are feeling conflicted, but they shouldn’t. The Green Party is a party of social and environmental justice. We aim to create a just, equitable and sustainable society. Our goal is to build a society and political system that works for the common good. Labour however, still wish to work within the current system, maybe tweak it a little, but not the overhaul that is needed to get our democracy back on track.

There has been much speculation about what will happen to the Green Party in the event of a Corbyn win, and in the event of a Corbyn lose. This conundrum will start to unravel at around midday tomorrow, when the country learns who will be entrusted with leading the opposition for the next 5 years.
