The Co-Leader of the Green Party, Jonathan Bartley, will be coming to give a talk at the University of York on Thursday the 3rd November.

During the event, which is hosted by the University of York’s Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, Mr Bartley will speak generally on the state of politics in contemporary Britain, but will particularly focus on outlining his views on nuclear weapons, worldwide disarmament and the Green Party’s strategy for fighting the government’s plan to replace Trident. The focal point of the event will be a Question and Answer session, where attendees will be encouraged to engage with and challenge Mr Bartley’s views. The event will also be recorded by York Student Television.

Josh Foskett, a spokesperson for the event, commented:

“We’re encouraging all to come along, whether you may be sympathetic to Green views, or you may be the polar opposite and want to see them challenged. Equally if you haven’t really engaged with politics before then it could be a good starting point into issues surrounding nuclear weapons and the state of UK politics.”

The event, which will commence at 7pm in Alcuin College, is ticketed, but free tickets can be downloaded here http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/an-evening-with-jonathan-bartley-tickets-28640094293.
