Amy Kettyles is the co-convener of the Scottish Young Greens - the party’s youth wing. A student at the University of Strathclyde, they will contest their home constituency of Glasgow East.

In Glasgow North East the public will be able to vote for Ewan Lewis. Ewan is a data analyst for a worldwide consulting firm and is an internationalist, working with the Federation of Young European Greens (FYEG). 

And finally, software Engineer John Hamelink will stand in Glasgow South West. As a feminist and a left-winger with farming roots, John will hope to build on the Red Clydeside tradition by putting progressive policies on the agenda at Westminster.

John Hamelink said: “At such a momentous time in politics, both at home and across the world, it has never been more important to stand up for what is right.

"With a complacent Labour party which has proven itself yet again to be stripped of conviction and substance when it really matters, the need for a strong left wing perspective in the commons is paramount for the future of this country and for those who live in it.

"As eco-socialists, we must stand for a just transition away from fossil fuels, and through this change we must empower workers with all their skills, talents and wisdom to build a society for all of us, not just those with asset wealth and political sway.

"We want ordinary people to be part of this from the get-go, and no other party offers that."

Niall Christie added: “Labour and the SNP would have you think in Glasgow South and across the city that they are the only choices on the ballot. But with the Tories not at risk of winning here, the public can vote with their conscience and put the future of Glasgow, Scotland, and the planet first. 

“Since making Glasgow my home I have built my life here, and welcomed my first child earlier this year. I want to make sure that Glasgow and the rest of the world are safe places for him to grow up. 

“As a proud ecosocialist, I understand that the climate emergency and the financial challenges facing ordinary voters are intertwined. If the people of Glasgow vote Green on July 4th they will have six dedicated MPs who will work every single day for the working people of this city.”
