Leanne and Caroline in 2007, during a blockade of Faslane.
Today (7th May) is a good day for nostalgia – tomorrow is for reflection.
I have campaigned alongside Greens and Plaid against nuclear weapons and for green aspirations for decades – but saddened by the hostility of some Green Party members to Plaid Cymru during this most divisive election campaign.
Both parties (and socialists both within and near to other parties) share hopes for a better greener world and a more community-friendly society. Personally I can see no justification for the hostility I have witnessed in recent weeks.
Looking to the National Assembly elections in 2016, I hope for a more obvious green presence in the Senedd. This can be achieved if the Wales Green Party and Plaid Cymru agree a joint list of candidates for the regional elections.
I fear that, if recent Green/Plaid hostility (in Wales) continues for the National Assembly elections, it will be detrimental to the causes espoused by both the Wales Green Party and Plaid Cymru .
