A visit from London Assembly Member Caroline Russell

At our public meeting in Merton Arts Space on 13th March, Caroline Russell (right), one of the Green Party’s three London Assembly Members, gave an inspiring account of her work. The meeting was chaired by Rachel Brooks (left), our parliamentary candidate for Wimbledon. Caroline spoke about her work on the Police and Crime Committee and the concerns raised by the Angiolini Inquiry. She talked about her campaign to increase the number of toilets on the public transport network. She expressed her support for the reduction in air pollution brought about by the ULEZ. She emphasised the importance of standing up for the rights of the poorest and those facing discrimination. And she outlined the positive influence that Green politicians have had on the London Assembly, explaining that they have to engage with a vast range of issues as well as working to ensure that the environment is at the top of the agenda.
