Voters must be given the chance to demand action on the climate emergency Carolynn Scrimgeour

Westminster candidates announced

Dunbartonshire Greens will contest both East Dunbartonshire and West Dunbartonshire seats at the general election, it has been confirmed.

The branch took the decision as it is clear no other party recognises the urgency of the climate emergency, which cannot wait for Brexit or independence.
 
Scottish Greens candidate for East Dunbartonshire, Carolynn Scrimgeour, said:
 
"Voters across the country must be given the chance to demand action on the climate emergency as it is the most pressing issue facing our country. I’m excited to run a positive Green campaign in East Dunbartonshire to say we need action, not words, to prevent irreversible climate change.


"We’re as committed as ever to ensuring Scotland’s future as an independent country in the European Union, but change to protect our planet cannot wait, and the Scottish Green New Deal we’ve proposed can start that action now".
 
Scottish Green West Dunbartonshire candidate Peter Conolly added:
 
"As a father and grandfather, I am truly terrified of the future we are creating for our children and grandchildren. Only the Greens are taking the climate crisis seriously. The Scottish Green New Deal is a plan of action that can be taken now to avert the climate crisis and create thousands of well-paid jobs. We can build a more just, sustainable and prosperous nation.


I am standing in this election for the sake of all our children and grandchildren. We need immediate climate action through the Scottish Green New Deal. The loudest and clearest way to demand climate action is to vote Scottish Green on December 12".
