EQUO: Headed by ex-boss of Greeneace Juan Lopez de Uralde (centre)

AN ex-boss of Greenpeace is spearheading a new green movement, set to shake up Spain’s political system by uniting all green thinkers under one banner.

Juan Lopez de Uralde, former head of the campaign group’s Spanish division, has made the move into politics to offer ‘a strong voice’ to promote the eco-transformation of Europe’s economy with Spain at its heart.

As well as tackling environmental issues, the new green force ‘Equo’ is calling for electoral reform and a bolstering of Spain’s welfare system.

Influential thinkers, including Inés Sabanés, leader of Izquierda Unida, and the ex-director general of Public Heath, Ildefonso Hernandez have joined Equo, with a view to offering the Spanish electorate a viable green alternative in the 2012 general election.
