Catherine Rowett, Green Party MEP for the East of England, stopped off in Stowmarket on her way home from Strasbourg on last Thursday. At the local meeting Party members and supporters heard about her first few months in the parliament, how we can work with Greens in Europe in the future and how we can cut through the Brexit mess and take some positive messages from the EU. Catherine had made a speech this week about continued whaling in the context of a proposed trade deal between EU and Japan.
Catherine answered lots of questions, across topics such as factory farming and fishing, palm oil and bio-diesel, and what other countries are doing to tackle the climate and biodiversity emergency.
Catherine was elected in May this year, as one of seven UK Green Party MEPS, and joined an enlarged group of 74 MEPs from across Europe.
