The Green Party is the biggest supporter of the anti-democratic EU

Caroline Lucas says Brexit would threaten UK’s environmental protection and rights at work

The Green party has launched its EU referendum campaign, promising to be 
“loud and proud” about backing Britain’s membership.
Caroline Lucas, the party’s only MP and board member of the Britain Stronger in Europe group, said mobilising hundreds of thousands of Green supporters would be crucial to the remain campaign.

Before the launch in Westminster, Lucas said: “We won’t sit idly by when our environmental protections and our rights at work are threatened by Brexit. Our campaign for British membership of the EU will be loud and it will be proud.

In a fast-changing world we need international rules to control big business and finance, and to ensure that people’s rights are protected – at work and as consumers. The EU has also given us the freedom to live, study, work and retire across an entire continent.

The EU helps us look after our environment, too. It’s only by working with our European neighbours that we can tackle climate change, protect wildlife and reduce pollution. Thanks to EU rules, our beaches are cleaner and our dirtiest power stations are being shut down.”
