Candidate for Beverley and Holderness
Dr Isabel Pires is a cancer research scientist and lecturer in biomedical science at the University of Hull, and a keen science communicator. Originally from Portugal, Isabel moved to the UK eighteen years ago and is a British citizen.
"I believe that we need to be the change we want to see in the world. The current form of the UK political system, including the broken and outdated First Past The Post voting system, is crippling any possibility of a truly democratic government.
The current pressures facing the UK, including the climate emergency, staggering inequality, an NHS struggling under extreme pressure, increase in food bank usage, homelessness, and in-work poverty, amongst others, are not being dealt with by a right-wing, inward-facing, greed-driven government.
As a scientist, I know that the climate emergency is the biggest threat we are facing right now. The Green Party is the only party with clear policies to protect the environment and to build a safe, equal, and fair future for our children and grandchildren.
If you have been inspired by the recent environmental movements and increase in youth activism, voting for the Green Party represents an alternative you can believe in.“
