In our first year we've achieved so much & we've got plans to go EVEN BIGGER in the lead up to the next election. To pull this off, we need to double our monthly donors by the time Parliament resumes in September. Can you give one hours wage a month? 🙌 act.gndrising.org/support-gn…

Clean power by 2030 is the sort of bold vision we've demanded from Keir Starmer 👀 It's a big step from Labour towards a transformative Green New Deal. But we need details of how they will achieve this ambitious target. Public ownership of energy MUST be part of the plan.

We can't just rely on private energy companies to decarbonise as quickly as we need. We must take control of our energy system, bring bills down and commit to delivering millions of good green jobs across sectors whilst investing in public services like the NHS and social care.

We and so many others have been pushing Labour for months to give us an answer on how they are going to deliver a Green New Deal. Without this pressure, Keir Starmer would not be making this his headline announcement. So let's keep pushing. Until we win 💪

This is what a real Green New Deal would look like. @Keir_Starmer must commit to the bold and visionary policies we desperately need to set us on a course towards the decade of the Green New Deal. @GNDRising has been pushing Labour for a year now - we'll be watching👀
What do we want from Labour this conference? The Green New Deal is our generation's moonshot. It's full of vital and vote-winning policies to announce, like: 🌅a historic roll out of renewables so we decarbonise as fast as possible 🙋‍♀️good green jobs for anybody that wants one

This Tory government has already set out its economic agenda: handouts for millionaires, cuts for ordinary people, disaster for the planet. Ahead of Labour Conference, together with @GNDRising, I wrote about the alternative Labour should now put forward👇🏽 labourlist.org/2022/09/labou…

#GlobalClimateStrike! Long live international solidarity! World leaders need to prioritize #PeopleNotProfit. We need climate reparations from the Global North to the Global South for past, present & future loss & damages, for adaptation, & mitigation. This isn't charity or aid!

Today’s #MiniBudget amounts to a massive transfer of income to the very richest at the height of the cost of living scandal. Fresh analysis from @NEF bit.ly/3r2DdXm

This is a budget for the bankers. The 1% get tax breaks, uncapped bankers' bonuses, attacks on workers rights and cruel benefit cuts. But as GND champion @labourlewis explains, this is not an accident. It's an ideology. And we are going to fight it.
Are you wondering why this Government thinks it's a good idea to uncap bankers' bonuses, while millions of people face hunger and cold this winter? It's called 'trickle down theory'. Watch and share this video to expose this trickle down budget.

In good company here writing with @NadiaWhittomeMP. The £28bn a year Labour’s pledged to combat climate change is a good start, but this conference we need to see how that money will be spent with transformative policy commitments. Here are some ideas they should start with 👇🏻
"Now is the time for Labour leadership to be on the right side of history. This Labour Party conference, we need a bold commitment to a comprehensive green new deal," @gndrising's @Hannah_RM and Labour MP @NadiaWhittomeMP write ahead of #Lab22: labourlist.org/2022/09/labou…

For those who need to hear this again: Fracking will not take place in Wales. We are in the middle of an energy crisis, and facing a climate emergency. We must continue to concentrate all efforts towards renewable solutions - and fast. news.sky.com/story/fracking-…

Energy bills are skyrocketing. The climate crisis is pushing up food prices. Kwasi Kwarteng’s priority? Increasing bankers’ pay. Tackling the cost of living & the climate emergency go hand-in-hand. At #Lab22 Conference we must present a bold alternative.

As the Government abandons huge parts of society, it’s time to unite in opposition to their plans. At conference, we need a bold plan for how the Labour party will spend the £28bn they've already committed, to make the Green New Deal a reality, as @NadiaWhittomeMP says.
