2. SOUNDBITE (English) Sian Berry, joint leader of the Green Party:
"(UK Prime Minister) Boris Johnson wants to make this the Brexit election, a rerun of the referendum, a fight on his terms, on his dodgy turf. But this election is about so much more. Yes, Greens are the strongest voice for remaining in the European Union because we must protect environmental standards and work with our neighbours to avoid climate chaos, because we must protect our precious freedom of movement, our human rights and our peace. Because we must remain and transform. But, some things are even bigger than Brexit. This must be the climate election, the future won't get another chance."

"That is why Greens like you will be coming to cities all over the UK, knocking on doors, getting out on the streets, fighting for every single vote we can, to make sure that this election goes down in history as the turning point in our fight for climate justice. Let's be honest about the situation we're in. We know these are dark times. It's easy to fear the future. The threat of Brexit hangs over our heads, the climate emergency rages from the Amazon to the Arctic, and our fragile democracy is under attack. But despite all this, Greens don't fear the future. We are the future. We stand at the threshold of what could be the most exciting and prosperous period of our country's history, because taking action on the climate emergency isn't just about averting disaster. It's about creating a brand new Britain."
The joint leader of the UK's Green Party told supporters the upcoming general election was "about so much more" than Brexit, pledging to place the climate emergency at the forefront of the party's priorities.
Speaking to party supporters in London at the launch of its election campaign, Sian Berry said "some things are even bigger than Brexit, this must be the climate election, the future won't get another chance."
Berry said the Greens would be campaigning up and down the country "to make sure that this election goes down in history as the turning point in our fight for climate justice."
Berry stressed taking action on climate change was not just about averting disaster, saying it was about "creating a brand new Britain."
Some 46 million people are eligible to vote in Britain's December 12 election, with all 650 House of Commons seats up for grabs.
