Green Party candidate for East Derry/Londonderry
A political activist and equality campaigner, Anthony Flynn will fight to bring political transparency and stable government to the fore of our politics in Northern Ireland.
“I am delighted to have been selected as the Green Party’s candidate for the East Derry constituency in the upcoming snap election”
“While this is not an election that the people of Northern Ireland want, the Green Party is ready to put forward our principles. We believe in clean, transparent and accountable politics where politicians can be held to account for their actions and political parties are open about their funding. The politics of waste must end.”
“While we fight this election on these principles, it is also important to highlight the other failures of the previous executive, something that we will work to rectify. The previous government have failed the health service and it is currently collapsing around us. They have failed in their commitment to integrated education and they have failed to respect the majority of voters in Northern Ireland to remain in the EU, this has driven a wedge between NI and Britain. The executive have also consistently failed in their obligations to upload human rights in Northern Ireland. Women are not afford the same rights as their counterparts in the rest of the UK, they have been consistently denied bodily autonomy to the point where lives are at risk and we must now take steps to ensure that the criminalisation of women stops.”
“Being a member of the LGBTQ community, we know what it’s like to be treated as 2nd class citizens in our own Country, those who claim to espouse fairness and equality for every community, far too often only mean it for themselves or to exploit us for short-term political gain. Civil Marriage equality may only be one of the many rights that we are continually denied, but it is the one that we are closer than we have ever been to solving.”
“If you hate waste then vote Green on Thursday 2nd March.”
