Brent Green Party

Local Campaigner, Pete Murry, is the Green Party candidate in the Dollis Hill By-Election

1 March 2012

Pete Murry, who has lived in Dollis Hill and previously worked in Brent for over twenty years in the College of North West London, is the Green Party candidate in the upcoming by-election. He is now a pensioner, but he finds himself busier now than with his campaigning work in the Green Party and beyond. Locally he works for the Brent Campaign Against Climate Change, where he has helped to organise and video a series of talks by writers on ecological issues.

Although not as physically active as he would like, he supports the Brent Fightback organisation against local cuts and is a committee member of the Coalition of resistance which to co-ordinates anti-cuts campaigns across the country.

 

Pete Murry, Green Party candidate for Dollis Hill said of his candidacy: "I totally agree with Green MP Caroline Lucas when she says that current Coalition government austerity policies are almost the exact opposite to what is needed which is a programme of investment and job creation focussed on building the infrastructure that the country needs to combat climate change."

Mr Murry continued: "Alongside their cuts to services and privatisation of education, Brent's wasteful spending proposals to replace a perfectly good town hall in Wembley and demolish a perfectly good existing cultural centre in Willesden, deny popular cultural and other facilities whilst making the council taxpayer pay for these wanton vanity projects."

The by-election is being held on 22nd March 2012.
