A Heritage Plaque in Broadgate, Coventry, to commemorate the founding of the Green Party
The first public meeting of PEOPLE Party was held on 24 February 1973 at 20 Broadgate, Coventry, which was at the time the estate agent showroom of Edward Savage & Associates.
We believe that a Heritage Plaque should be placed on Cathedral Lanes, the building in Broadgate nearest to where that showroom stood to celebrate this turning point in the history of politics.
PEOPLE Party was renamed the Ecology Party which quickly grew as a new political movement determined to change the way things are done.
This is now the Green Party and led the way to the birth of many Green Parties around the world.
Why is this important?
We are looking to the people of Coventry and West Midlands to show your support for this location to be recognised and celebrated.
This first meeting was a special event in the history of, not just our city and local politics, but of a movement that is still building momentum as we seek to change the world for the better.
It is 50 years since that first meeting of the Green Party - let's mark this occasion by seeing a plaque unveiled.
Please sign our petition.
How it will be delivered
We will present it to Coventry City Council.
