I am Emily Kelly and I am standing for the Green Party in Dukinfield Stalybridge
I was born in Mottram and have lived in Tameside all my life. I have strong concerns for animal welfare, the community, and the environment. I have voted Green for the past 20 years. I currently work in the Community and have a deep understanding of the concerns of the poor and unemployed in Tameside. This is why I support the Green Party’s policy on providing a Citizens Income to replace the current divisive benefits system.
The three mainstream political parties try to focus our anger on the unemployed, Europe and/or immigration when the real problems are corrupt politicians, corrupt bankers and corrupt big business.
We need to bring power back to the communities and away from selfish bureaucrats.
I believe we need to replace ’growth’ as our goal, with sustainability. The future of our 7 billion inhabitants is not to industrialise, but to ‘tread softly’ and be in step with nature.
No building on the Greenbelt,no fracking.
