Chris said, “Welsh politics lacks young people and new ideas. The polls are predicting Greens to win seats in the next National Assembly government and by voting for, and sending Greens to represent you, we can hold other politicians to account and make sure that promises made by fellow progressives from other parties are kept.
Greens in Wales including myself unapologetically demand real action on climate change and protecting the Welsh environment. We demand the protection and restoration of our civil rights which have been, and continue to be, drastically eroded under previous governments. We demand real equality and social justice and we will make sure that the next assembly government is a government for every single person in this country.
As your Green candidate I intend my campaign to be one of honesty and respect to other candidates and to the electorate. I really don’t like that in today’s culture it’s considered ‘good politics’ to dumb down political messaging, and that is something I refuse to do.”
