A MESSAGE FROM CAROLINE LUCAS MP TO THE QUB GREENS
The QUB Greens supported Caroline Lucas in her bid to become the Uks first Green MP through a recycling fundraiser! We were absolutely delighted to hear that Caroline got elected and that we were able to play a small part. We were even more delighted to recieve an email from Caroline thanking the efforts of the QUB Greens during her election! :-) Below is the message from Caroline.
Dear Mark, Lois and all QUB Greens,
Firstly, thank you so much for your email, here at the Green Party HQ in Brighton, we were impressed and inspired by the actions of your group and your smart recycling/fundraising project.
So a huge thank you for your work -- and your money! Thanks to your support, you've helped play a part in making history and electing the UKs very first Green MP.
You've seen how we can succeed if we work together and I hope this victory inspires you to keep working hard, getting out that Green message of fairness for all and to keep coming up with great recycling and fundraising ideas.
We are the branch of the Young Greens and Green Party at Queens University.
The Green Party is the only party that unashamedly puts people and planet before profit and power. We are progressive and democratic, and work for social equality, ecological stability and protecting the planet and human rights. The Green mantra "Think global, act local" emphasises our dedication to grassroots organisation in small local areas - such as QUB.
