The Green Party's London manifesto promises a 20mph speed limit, the abolition of private finance initiatives and a ban on genetically modified food.
The Greens have had considerable success in London, gaining three seats on the Greater London Authority, their highest national political office to date.
The manifesto, launched by GLA Green group leader Darren Johnson, contains a 10-point plan for London.
Green MEP Jean Lambert said: 'London Greens have been elected to every level of government except Westminster. We need a voice there if we are to have social and environmental justice.'

Measures include:

-Securing safe, reliable and cheap public transport by renationalising the railways and increasing bus lanes
-Strengthening public services by ending privatisation and PFI
-Strengthening local economies and decision-making
by opposing globalisation and institutions which put free trade before democracy and justice
-Ensuring safe food by banning genetically modified organisms
