Green Party candidate for the EP elections 2019 in London

Hello! I’m Remco van der Stoep and I am a Green Party candidate in the 2019 European Parliament elections for London constituency.

I’m proud and delighted to be #6 on the list of the Green Party in London. On the Green Party list, I am one of a diverse group of excellent progressive politicians, ready to make big Green waves in Brussels and Strasbourg and to secure a European future for the United Kingdom. Inside an improving EU that puts climate change and human rights before corporate profits.

Standing in these elections is special to me, I relish the opportunity to actively participate in a UK election as a non-British EU citizen to make the most of our shared citizenship and to express confidence in a strong European Union that includes the UK.

If you can, please support our campaign by donating to our crowdfunder. The Green Party receives no funding from corporations or trade unions; it depends on the generosity of (extra)ordinary people.

This spring, Londoners will reward the Green Party for its principled campaigning for a better EU and for the beautiful thing that is freedom of movement. It’s only right that the top Green candidates are truly committed Europeans.

On Monday 25 March, I spoke about Green politics, Brexit, and being a candidate on Dutch national radio. A link is here – please note the interview is in Dutch.
