Site News February 2019
Only a couple of new articles during January as the main focus has been on uploading new documents to the archive. ALmost all of the Steve Lambert archive is now available, although indexing is, as always, far from complete. Descriptions and Contents need adding for almost all items, but initial tagging is complete.
You can find a list of the Steve Lambert material here https://green-history.uk/library/doc-archive/category/tag?tagid=68. It starts with a 1975 "Statement of Aims" document from the Ecology Party and moves through a lot of material relating to the foundation and early days of the London Ecology Party which Steve and Jean were highly involved in.
This includes some material from the successful long term campaign against transporting nuclear waste from Dungeness by train through the capital on its way to storage in Cumbria.
Also included is a leaflet for Paul Tyler's 1976 by-election campaign in Walsall - the first national election entered by the EP and where many early activists were drafted in to help including Steve as a brand new member and David Taylor.
Undoubtably this material will generate several interesting articles. As well as London, the documents awaiting processing include some on the early days of Oxford and Bristol Eco/Green parties.
Preparing the next tranche of material has generated a short piece on the development of the party newsletter - from "Alliance" through various iterations of "Eco News" to "Green Activist" and "Green World". See articles/publications/econews-greenworld
