  • Solidarity with migrant communities after Brexit
    I am a EU migrant who has lived in the UK for over 10 years and calls this place their second home. Brexit will have a major impact on my life here – I don’t know if I can stay, what I will have to do to stay, whether I’ll have to go through some ‘naturalisation’ process (only the word in itself smells of Nazi ideology). As of yesterday I ... more

  • Vote for self-government, vote to leave the EU
    I'm voting to leave the EU tomorrow. Official Green Party support for the campaign to remain in the EU is thus very disappointing for me.
