With thanks to Nick Martin from Nottingham Secretary and Simon Hales, East Midlands Secretary we share important dates coming up, starting this week. Your voice and standpoints are needed:
- Bombs are not the answer: tomorrow evening (Thursday 28th August), Nottingham Stop the War Coalition have called a local protest against UK plans to launch missile strikes against Syria, risking further inflaming the situation there (see http://greenparty.org.uk/news/2013/08/27/caroline-lucas-a-military-response-to-assad-regime-could-lead-to-greater-harm-to-civilians/ for Caroline Lucas on the current situation in Syria). Assemble 6pm at the Brian Clough Statue if you want to make your voice heard.
- Nottingham Green Festival:This Sunday 1st September is the annual Nottingham Green Festival at the Arboretum (off Waverley Street). The event runs between 12:00 and 6:00, full of wonderful stalls and activities. Nottingham Green Party will be running a stall.
- Our Leader Visits: We are pleased to announce that Green party leader Natalie Bennett is visiting us on Tuesday 24th September.
There will be an opportunity for members to hear Natalie speak in the early evening from 6pm – 7.30pm at Ashston Court Hotel, Derby. This venue is right opposite Derby Railway Station. www.astoncourthotelderby.com/business.html
