Some of you might have come across the excellent US campaign MoveOn.org - an instrumental player in the country falling out of love with Bush: well a UK version has just been launched, Do Something About It!
DSAI seeks to influence British politics by backing candidates that support its 'progressive' goals:
- a diverse economy, less dependent on the demands of the financial sector
- investment in 'green' industries and energy production (and training!)
- a smaller gap between the richest and the poorest
- a fairer society, in which people are not stifled by lack of time and resources
Wow! Sounds like a summary of the politics that drove me to the Green Party in the first place. I hope they attract a big membership - and that they'll be directing some of them to help elect one of the country's first Green MPs here in Brighton and Peacehaven...
