We are Greens in the South West and we campaigned to keep the UK in the European Union. We still believe there’s a case for EU membership beyond trade, and will continue showcasing what the EU offers in terms of environmental and social justice.
What can you do?
We need to rally around our communities and make sure the Brexit process is as participatory as possible. Most importantly, start conversations with people at work, on the bus, in the pub. People felt abandoned by the establishment, and now they’ve been abandoned by the ones that led them to vote Leave. We must now fight to retain our rights, and change our democratic system at home to truly reflect the voice of each and every one of us.
This website should give you lots of information to use!

We have links to more information on many topics about Greens and the EU on our Resources page – please read for more information, and share widely along with our Pledge to Campaign for our rights and multicultural society.
The main In campaigns are still active in the South West. They are Stronger IN and we are working with them and Another Europe is Possible to get the Green message out whenever we can. Visit the Stronger IN website or contact South West organiser Richard Pinnock (firstname.lastname@example.org). Visit the Another Europe is Possible website here.
