York Green Party

New Green Party Leader Speaks at York

22 October 2012

Natalie Bennett, national Green Party leader

On Wednesday 24th October, 6.30pm, Natalie Bennett, newly elected leader of the Green Party, will deliver a public talk introducing herself and laying out her vision for the future of the Green Party.

The talk will be part of a series of visits to local Green Party's across the country that Natalie has made following her election as leader of the Green Party of England and Wales in September of this year. It will provide a chance for party members and the public to hear about what direction she intends to take the Green Party and get to know her better personally. During the talk Natalie is also likely to be focussing on the disastrous impact that the government's continuous austerity programme is having on the fabric of society; particularly its impact on younger and future generations.

Ahead of the talk Ms Bennett will spend the day with York Green Party where she will visit the Arclight homeless shelter, see the benefits of York's first major 20mph zone in South Bank and address a reception for party members, supporters and like-minded community groups.

Commenting ahead of the visit Cllr Andy D'Agorne said, 'Natalie's visit gives us the opportunity to highlight the terrible impact that the government's severe cuts are starting to have on our public services and the fabric of our society.'

Natalie's talk will take place at 6:30pm, Wednesday 24th October, P/X/001, Department of Physics, University of York. The talk is open to all.
