This was just posted on the gender critical greens post but I think is worth everyone concerned seeing and commenting on if you feel strongly.

Some of the comments are chilling. Now is the time to speak up if you haven't already. Support those who are - before it's too late.

Comments on free speech are shocking!

I know! This common and very odd reaction to any discussion about trans related rights being in conflict with other concerns is what set off huge alarm bells for me about this whole debate. If there are no issues why the massive clamp down on discussing them?

Yes- the free speech thing got me in to.

Utterly ridiculous. The post didn’t even mention anything to do with transgender people! Surely the point of the post was that the original suffragettes were radical feminists?!
Oh and the guy with a beard saying he’s not a man? hmm

South East Young Greens
Just now ·
In light of the ‘free speech’ motion passed yesterday by the North Surrey Green Party, the South East Young Greens would like to reaffirm our solidarity with all members of liberation groups who find themselves underrepresented and disadvantaged within society.

The South East Young Greens recognise the widespread discrimination that people of transgender and non-binary identities continue to face, and are firmly committed to campaigning against such prejudice, in line with Green Party policy.
