The local issue I'm most concerned about is the new road (the 'MRT' scheme) that the council are planning, which, if it goes ahead, will destroy what is currently a peaceful and semi-wild stretch of riverside. Unless you're happy to see this happen, please put in an objection to this terrible scheme here. A new road is completely unnecessary and will do nothing to relieve Reading's traffic problems, which would be better alleviated by introducing congestion charging.
I joined the Green Party in 2014 after many years of voting for them. I joined because my views and values are broadly in line with those of the party, and I feel very strongly about those values: from protection of the natural environment, to the importance of animal rights, to working towards a more egalitarian and liberated society.
As Government policies are adversely affecting more and more of us, there has never been a better time to get involved with the work of the Green Party.
Any help you can give us, from delivering newsletters to making a donation, will make a real difference to getting more Greens elected in your area, so together we can fulfil our Green vision for a healthier, fairer, and affordable future for everyone.
