Greens suspend campaigning / Leader's statement

23 May 2017

The Green Party has suspended campaigning today after last night's terrorist attack in Manchester. 

All national campaigning events, including the billboard launch and Welsh Green Party manifesto launch are cancelled. 

In a statement following the attacks, the Green Party co-leader Jonathan Bartley said: 

"Our thoughts are with those affected by this appalling incident in Manchester. For young people to be targeted in this way is utterly atrocious. 

"As ever our emergency services have done us proud - and we pay tribute to the police, firefighters and paramadics who stepped up in this time of need. 

"Our country will never be divided by terror. The people of Manchester showed last night just how strong the bond of friendship is between the people who live on these islands - and in the coming days and weeks we'll show that we won't let terrorism tear us apart."
