Immigration contributes a huge amount to Britain’s economy, our culture, and our way of life. Elements of the Leave campaign, in particular, sought to lay the blame for any problem Britain faces at the feet of the EU and migrants. This abhorrent and deliberate incitement of whole swathes of the population has contributed to the disgusting acts of xenophobia and racism we have witnessed since the referendum result.
The Green Party will continue to stand up against nasty, stigmatising rhetoric. We will call out any politician or policy that is at its core racist or xenophobic. We will continue to welcome likeminded people from all over the world.
We have launched our new International Membership and are inviting everyone who identifies as a migrant, from the EU and further afield, to join the Green Party. Let’s celebrate our differences!
