Reveal: Transparency in donations

It is a shame that Northern Ireland is going into yet another election under the shadow of donor secrecy.

This must be the last time that we are asked to choose our elected representatives whilst being unable to see who is paying their campaign bills.

We cannot have an environmental revival without a democratic revival, and transparency is a crucial component of a healthy democracy. We have been campaigning for parity with the rest of the UK and the Republic of Ireland for half a decade, and recent events have further proven that we must find out ‘who pulls the strings’.
