The European Elections will - much to our surprise and happiness - soon be upon us.  We've not got a lot of time, but we're confident that with your help in getting the message out to voters that we'll be able to elect Scotland's first Green MEP, who will fight to stop Brexit and tackle the Climate Crisis. With such a short campaign, every door we knock or leaflet we deliver will be crucial, so we're counting on you to help.

We'll be campaigning in Glasgow every Saturday (at least) in the run up to the election, with campaigning happening simultaneously on the North and South sides of the river.  There'll be plenty to do - doors to be knocked, leaflets to be delivered - so no matter what your level of campaign experience you'll be able to help out.
