ENGLISH GREEN has just produced another e-poster; it shows that both capitalism and socialism are equally responsible for environmental misuse and destruction.
Currently, the main focus of English Green is educational. However, it aims to turn its supporters into activists as well. Tim Bragg, the founder of and spokesman for English Green says:
“I trust that everyone will help send this message out; alerting others interested in the environment and animal welfare to the existence of English Green.
For the record, English Green understands that the notion of socialism vs capitalism is outdated. We feel that the argument has and must move beyond the boundaries of traditional political beliefs. We need to become both idealistic and pragmatic. However, we recognise that there are lots of potential supporters who as yet remain caught up in this political polarisation.”
Mass media helps perpetuate the continuing notion of “left versus right”; the challenge facing English Green is to involve everyone in the fight for human, animal and environmental welfare. Folk can become trapped in a “them and us” view of their country and indeed the world – but we’re all in this together. Left or right – we face the same challenges; it’s time to move on.
English Green is concerned with England’s environment and its people and animals. Non-green ideology is for others (though we can certainly comment) and non-English green matters are for other nation’s Green movements. But we intend to link to and have networks with all like-minded Green groups. English Green is specific to England but will be part of a new global green national patchwork.
