The following is an excerpt from a Green Party communication of the 7th November thanking people for donations and anticipating the remainder of this parliamentary term.
We have relied on your support throughout our campaign. You and other Green Party supporters, voters, activists, members and volunteers pitch in whatever you can, whenever you can. Thank you.
This heartens me [James Shaw] as we gear up to accomplish as much as we can over the next three years – taking action on climate, conservation, women’s equality, transport, and health.
This is not what I voted for.
This is what I voted for. (All excerpts from Green Party communications)
There is a very real possibility that the Green Party will be part of a new Government – but we are unlikely to know the outcome until next week. We can assure you that no matter what the outcome is, we will continue to fight for action on climate change, clean rivers and poverty.
Thanks to you, the environment, climate change, rivers and poverty will be the on top of the agenda for the next Government. […] Whether in government or remaining on the opposition benches, we still have to campaign to address climate change, to clean our rivers and to end poverty.
No matter what happens over the next three years, these conversations have started, and we will continue to work on cleaning up our rivers, taking action on climate change and ending poverty.
Five great reasons to Party Vote Green
If we get into government on September 23 we will:
Help end child poverty
The Green party will increase all core benefits by 20 percent, increase the amount people can earn before their benefit is cut, increase the value of Working For Families, raise the minimum wage by $2, and much more.
I’ve no doubt I could go on, pulling out example after example. But you get the picture.
