Further left than the NDP, greener than the Greens
The rising concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few is having a direct impact on people’s lives, and fueling the climate crisis. Taking action at an individual level will not be enough to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and get things back on track in time.
We want to make big changes. We’re inspired by people like Greta Thunberg, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jeremy Corbyn, Bernie Sanders, Autumn Peltier, the water protectors at the Unis'tot'en Camps and Standing Rock - people all over the world who are standing up for people and the planet over profits.
Maybe you’ve noticed that none of the parties currently in the BC legislature seem to want to make big changes. It’s as if they don’t understand or care about the problems facing the people who elected them. Problems like:
- the housing crisis and resulting homelessness
- income and wealth inequality
- the overwhelming increase in overdose deaths
- fires, droughts and floods killing and displacing people worldwide
You are already beginning to see the devastating impact of climate change, while BC builds more fossil fuel infrastructure. We’ve noticed this too. We believe in representative democracy, but there’s nobody out there who is willing to make the changes that are needed.
The BC Ecosocialists is a new provincial political party that’s further left than the NDP,
and greener than the Greens.
We prioritize people over profit, and we're committed to real reconciliation.
We hope you'll join us.
We know that it’s not a dream, but a practical reality, that we can all live decent lives without keeping other people down. BC has the resources to house everyone. We can feed everyone, without food banks. We can afford to provide childcare to everyone who needs it. We can provide income assistance so that every person without employment can live with dignity.
We want to tax rich people and corporations to fund better policies, like building tens of thousands of units of public social housing, employing people to build new green energy and transportation infrastructure, and stopping all new fossil fuel infrastructure, including LNG projects. We would stop Site C dam construction, and close the coal mines to keep remaining fossil fuels in the ground, where they need to stay.
We are strong supporters of human rights, including women’s rights and the rights of Indigenous people. We believe in fighting for equity and eliminating the systemic impediments to living full, safe, and healthy lives that are disproportionately faced by minorities including Indigenous People, People of Colour, People living in Poverty, Newcomers, Refugees, People of Jewish, Muslim and other diverse faiths and ethno-cultural backgrounds, Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Queer, Two-spirit, Trans, and Gender Diverse People, those Differently-abled or who are Neurodiverse. We stand with Wet’suwet’en land protectors and other Indigenous communities in calling for an immediate end to police intervention against peaceful protests, and on sovereign tribal lands.
