On Housing, we believe secure affordable homes are a basic human need, and we would place controls on foreign investment, which has shut people out from the housing market and inflated prices far beyond what most people can afford.
To help everyone fully participate in our communities, rent caps would be implemented, allowing people to continue living in their homes without the fear of being forced out. Our policies focus on Equality, which means, not just a minimum wage, but a fairer living wage for all, as well as action on zero-hours contracts. Within our communities, which have been built on the success of migrants, we believe in having positive conversations on immigration, and making sure the system is fair for all of us.
This is why we’re against austerity, and why we will bring railways back into public hands and stop the sell-off of the NHS.
We’re practical about Britain’s politics and economy, which is why it’s time to recognise that we need another way. We’re committed to proportional representation, giving all of us a voice to actually change politics instead of being forced to vote tactically at every election.
We want to tackle air pollution and provide real action on climate change. Hackney saw the highest Green vote and and the lowest UKIP vote in London at the local elections last year and Hackney Green Party is keen to highlight the borough’s inclusive and diverse nature.
The Green Party are the second biggest party in Hackney - the only real alternative to Labour.

Climate change affects all of us, and we urgently need to address it.
A great comparison site from the 2015 general election comparing what each party was promising to do, allowing voters to make an informed decision about who to vote for.
