Nottingham City Green Party

Robin HoodIn a city with such a rich history, we look forward to a fairer, healthier, more sustainable future for all of us.

Imagine a political system that puts the public first. Imagine an economy that gives everyone their fair share.

Imagine a society capable of supporting everyone’s needs. Imagine a planet protected from the threat of climate change now and for the generations to come. That’s the world we want to create and we believe we have the means to do it.

By ensuring that everyone has access to a secure job that pays at least the Living Wage we will build an economy that works for the common good, not just the privileged few. By restoring public services to public hands we will ensure they are run in the interests of the people that use them.

By investing in renewable energy and reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, we will build a stable and sustainable society that protects our planet from climate change.

By building more social rented homes and bringing abandoned buildings back into use we will ensure that everyone has a secure and affordable place to live.

Read about our vision in detail in our Manifesto for the 2015 Elections.

Support Green Party of England & Wales and you can help us build a society that works for the Common Good.

Say No to market-driven, undemocratic schools

Stand Up for Education campaign leaflet coverFollowing the Coalition government's disastrous plans to further wrest new schools away from properly-accountable local authority control, Nottingham Green Party states its opposition to the planned Nottingham Free School to be run by the Torch Academy Gateway Trust, and Central Nottingham Free School to be run by former headteacher Rudi Rischer.

We do not believe that free schools and academies have any place in our education system, as they allow private interests to dictate how and what is taught and to whom. They are funded from central government and have had the right of democratically-elected local authorities to have a say in their operation taken away.

Green Party Leader Natalie Bennett says that the Green Party will "work with the teaching unions, return all schools to local democratic control, reverse privatisation and ensure that all our children are taught by qualified teachers".

Nottingham Green Party supports the National Union of Teachers and is proud to be part of its Stand up for Education Coalition campaigning against the policies of the Coalition government that attack conditions for teachers and pupils alike.

While we welcome the sacking of Michael Gove, the worst education secretary in a generation, we must continue to campaign for his replacement, Nicky Morgan, to reverse the damage he has done to our education system.
