“We’re not all muesli knitters- meet the Green Party”

Will Duckworth, our deputy leader, will be in Nottingham on 18th May. There will be chances to meet him and local Green Party members at The Orange Tree after he speaks at Nottingham People’s Assembly. Fresh from supporting the strong green presence in Norwich on their election days, he will be coming to another hive of activity here in the East Midlands. Will is to be one of the key speakers in Nottingham’s People’s Assembly, leading into a national gathering on 22nd June in London. The Nottingham People’s Assembly event runs from 10:30 to 5pm on with the closing rally between 3-5pm.  People’s Assembly came of the cross-organisation ‘Coalition of Resistance’ that the Green Party has been involved in from the start. It is part of a united stand against austerity and for alternatives and our voice is core. The event will be held at The Friends Meeting House, Clarendon Street, NG1. Our own Will stands next to other great speakers. This include politician Tony Benn, Owen Jones, author of ‘Chavs and Anti Cuts‘, Francesca Martinenez, actress, comedian, activist against cuts and for disability rights, Lindsey German, author of ‘Sex, Class and Socialism’ and Andreas Bieler, professor of Political Economy at Nottingham University.

Will is staying after this event for an informal question and answer session about Green Party and our policies. This will be at The Orange Tree, 38 Shakespeare Street, NG1 at 5.30pm.  In Will’s own words  “We’re not all muesli knitters- meet the Green Party”. We are a diverse party with strong, shared core values focused on building a sustainable future and social justice.  Bring your questions to a friendly, informal setting and find out more. The Orange Tree is less than 5 mins walk from both Victoria Centre and The Corner House. See map below or walk down with us from People’s Assembly.
