Result demonstrates dramatically increasing support for radical ecological reforms
The extraordinary result obtained in the national elections in Brazil on Sunday the 3rd October by presidential candidate Marina Silva and the Green Party, demonstrates the increasing popularity of Green ideas and proposals in Brazil and around the world. Despite the popularity of outgoing President Lula, the Greens were able to obtain a sensational result and become one of the main political forces in this huge country. This is just one example that Green politics is becoming a strong political force not only in industrialized countries but also in developing countries across the globe.
The Global Young Greens coordination and our member organisations send our congratulations to Marina Silva and the Brazilian Greens for this wonderful result. Like the recent Green successes in Australia and Japan your example is a great encouragement to Greens all around the world.
