Sussex Progressives statement on call for general election 8 June 2017
Regarding the snap election for 8 June 2017, Sussex Progressives are committed to achieving a progressive future for Sussex and the UK where the values of equality, democracy, environmentalism, economic justice, and internationalism shape the politics and policies of this county and country.
Central to our efforts in achieving this is campaigning for a Progressive Alliance between the parties who are committed to these values.
As such, we will be campaigning in this election for a progressive candidate to win in the 5 Sussex seats where progressive parties collectively achieved a majority at the last election: Hove, Brighton Kemptown, Brighton Pavilion, Lewes, and Eastbourne.
The road to a Progressive Alliance is not predefined, but rather subject in each constituency to the agreement of party members and the voting public. We therefore call on all progressive parties in Sussex to work together to ensure a candidate that represents our shared values can be elected in each of the 5 seats mentioned above on the 8 June.
If you want a progressive future, come along to our Election Strategy Meeting on 25th April, 7pm in the Hanover Room of the Brighthelm Centre, Brighton.
