  • rsvped for St Mary's & Donnington Action Day! 2019-10-15 21:37:14 +0100

    St Mary's & Donnington Action Day, with Natalie Bennett!

    Join Natalie Bennett in helping get Greens elected in Donnington and St Marys Wards!

    Come to Oxford and help get Rosie Rawle, Chris Madden, Dick Wolff and Chris Jarvis elected to Oxford City Council!

    We're incredibly lucky to be joined by former Green Party leader and newly appointed member of the House of Lords Natalie Bennett. She'll be speaking about why it's so important to get Greens elected into local councils, as well as joining us on the campaign trail!

    We're in a crisis. Constitutional chaos drawn out by the Brexit debacle. A decade of austerity tearing up public services and our social fabric. A climate emergency with just eleven years to mitigate.

    The picture in Oxford is no less stark than across the country. The second highest rate of rough sleeper deaths in England. The most unaffordable city in the UK. A council failing to translate rhetoric on climate change into action.
    We need a new politics, and we need radical change in Oxford.

    Local government doesn't always have the best reputation. Nor does it often inspire and energise people. But it can be a momentous force for good when used in the right way. With the right policies, ideas and vision, local councils can totally transform people's lives.

    We want to play a role in utilising the power of local government to make that radical change. That's why we're standing for election to Oxford City Council.

    The elections aren't until May, but we need to hit the ground running now. As Greens, we don't have the money or resources of the other parties. What we have instead is a movement of people fighting for a better world.

    That's why we're asking for your help.

    We're asking you to give up a day of your time to help with our campaign. We'll have a range of campaign activities on the day. So whether you've never campaigned in an election before, are a canvassing expert or anything in between, your time will be incredibly valuable. Whether you're local to Oxford or not ,your time will make a huge difference.

    Hope to see you there!

    Q: Do you agree that considerate cycling should be allowed in Florence Park with clear signage instead of the current unclear situation?
    A: Yes

    Florence Park Cycling

    Many people don’t realise that currently cycling is prohibited in Florence Park (except for ‘authorised cycling ‘– unspecified). Do have a look at the small note at the bottom of the big park notice boards.

    Friends of Florence Park recently asked on line that cyclists be aware of other users and their needs and not behave selfishly. They are not proposing that cycling should be forbidden just that cyclists pay attention to pedestrians.

    What do you think?

    Help us hold your local Council to account

    Oxfordshire Green Party is running campaigns to fight homelessness, save local community facilities, tackle air pollution, ban single-use plastics and generally improve the quality of your local council services by getting more Green councillors elected. Our Green councillors have already got local councils to divest from fossil fuels, improve cycling facilities and require 50% social housing in new developments.

    We don't have much money, but we do have thousands of members and supporters in Oxfordshire. Will you join us to help make a difference in your local area? Please sign up below to volunteer in any way you can. 

    We are campaigning all year round on local issues and to get more Green councillors elected. If you have just a few hours to spare please do phone Kate Robinson on 07582 903996 to find how you can help, at a time that suits you.
