Emma Chan - Green Party candidate for Tottenham
Emma, who grew up in Tottenham and currently lives in Tottenham Hale, is a Junior Doctor currently studying towards a postgraduate degree in reproductive and sexual health research. She’s actively involved in a number of community groups, such as volunteering with the Stonebridge Lock Coalition, and doing work with Sexplain UK, a social enterprise that provides inclusive sex and relationship education programmes in schools.
Emma said that she is proud to represent the Green Party in this unexpected election and to stand up for her community.
She said “As a Green MP I will be your voice in Westminster - saying yes to Europe and no to climate chaos. Westminster Politicians across the political spectrum have failed us all on Brexit. What we need is a People’s Vote on the final deal now.”
She added “Tottenham is home to a unique and diverse community - we need decent sustainable and affordable housing, rather than expensive, quick-profit luxury flats that price out local people.”
Jarelle Francie - Green Party candidate for Hornsey and Wood Green
Jarelle, 34, is a young entrepreneur who has previously run his own business, and currently works as an independent art curator, with a focus on making arts and culture more accessible to young people, and communities outside the traditional art world.
Jarelle says: "I am a Wood Green resident and love Hornsey and Wood Green for the wonderful diversity of people and its Green spaces - but it’s vital that we address inequality, help build more social housing and tackle our air pollution with safer cycle and walk routes.”
He further commented on climate change, a prominent topic for the Green Party: “Like so many people, I’m terrified of what we’re doing to our planet. But the Greens have a serious plan. We need a Green New Deal to address climate breakdown, prioritise renewables, end airport expansion and deliver a better quality of life. Our planet needs people in power who recognise that we are living in a climate emergency and are dedicated to taking real action, not just saying the right words.”
