WHISTLEBLOWING: Today, in accordance with our whistleblowing polices, I have formally reported my concerns about #seriousmalpractice in @TheGreenParty to the CEO and Chair of Executive. #GreenParty #whistleblowing #complainantidentity #Challenor @VeritaUK @InquiryCSA Please RT
It is with #heavyheart that after 16 yrs in Party I have felt need to do so. I cannot sit back & watch Party corrupted by those who wld abuse their membership rights or subvert their officer roles – a Party which I & Greens before me have toiled over for sake of people and planet
I am raising alarm abt #seriousmalpractice in way members are being disciplined, now & in recent past, with regard to allegations of “transphobia”. I'm calling for urgent review of our complaints system & #specialmeasures to police these processes & safeguard against their abuse.
I am calling for #moratorium on investigation of any and all cases in which #complainantidentity being withheld against express interest of respondent - if only to allow determination of whether unreasonably withheld. #Appeals by respondents must also be considered #urgently.
I continue to be denied the sort of information now being granted to others as a result of the #complainantidentity ruling I requested. Over 100 members have publicly supported me in the last week to protest against the way I am being treated.
Nobody could reasonably be expected to be able to properly defend themselves against the content of a complaint nor to be able to demonstrate nefarious motivation when hampered by a veil of ignorance about who is doing the accusing. #whistleblowing #GreenParty
The right of every @TheGreenParty member to be treated with procedural fairness by disciplinary bodies and to have access to information about decisions which directly affect them with transparency and due diligence is enshrined in our #constitution. #thosethemwords
I have been shocked to hear about the scale of respondents or local parties seeking redress or appeal against the outcome of #recentcomplaints. Only after I highlighted the need to attend to potential mishandling of complaints, was I subjected to similar complaints myself.
Either we have managed to foster culture of transphobia in our Party of epidemic proportions; or complaints process being subverted to #silence those who wish to #debate our policies in area of great complexity & some controversy. Debate should be encouraged not disciplined
The Party has been rocked by the David #Challenor scandal and our inept response to it. Whilst we await the independent report by @VeritaUK we would be wise to avoid further failure, whether of those acting with impunity or of an institutional sort.
I applaud the many upstanding Greens and officers who continue to diligently and selflessly pursue the noble goals of the Party – in our best tradition. It is them to whom I make this appeal today. #whistleblowing #GreenParty
Alongside Greens daily, I speak truth to power externally on behalf of the Party. It is with dismay then that I must raise the alarm today on internal abuse of power. #whistleblowing #GreenParty
Just as we cannot stand by and watch the world #sleepwalking into #planetaryoblivion; so we must wake up to injustice being perpetrated against members by our members (or not even members) in our own watch. #whistleblowing #GreenParty #Truth
