Rock for Europe, Liverpool, Saturday 16th February 2019
Our friends in the NorthWest are organising an exciting rally and music event to help spread the remain message and stop Brexit! Including live bands, acoustic sessions, speakers and stalls. Be sure to join us.
Please check out the Eventbrite here for free registration more details!
We are raising funds to get the Monstrosity float back on the road. After an enforced break and a fantastic makeover by some truly talented volunteers (thanks ladies!) the #StopBrexit Monstrosity is back on the road and soon to be outside Parliament!
The next two weeks are crucial in our campaign to stop brexit. Theresa May has shown she is prepared to sacrifice our freedom of movement, our rights and protections, and the benefits our EU membership has bought the country, for a deal that either leaves us as rule takers not a rule makers, or sends us over the cliff edge. When even the government’s own forecasts show our children and grandchildren will be paying for brexit for years to come and the clear choice we have is May’s bad deal, no deal, or no brexit, it seems quite apparent which direction the country should be taking, and as things stand that’s a decision for our MPs to make. To show MPs the strength of our feelings we are planning to have the float outside Parliament as many times as possible, and really making its presence felt, in the next few weeks and especially the week of the debates and votes in Parliament.
To enable us to get the float on the road we need funds. We need to hire a truck, our usual one is off the road at the moment, and there will be fuel and parking costs – and the drivers probably deserve a sandwich and a coffee once in a while! So please, give generously and if you can’t then please share our campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/stop-brexit-funds
Thank you and see you outside Parliament.
More and more Remainers are gathering outside Parliament each day but there can never be enough, so why not take a day off work and go down, you won’t regret it and we know it makes a difference! Time is short, we must up the ante and keep making our presence felt. We can #StopBrexit
At least 100 pro-EU groups from across the UK have come together to appeal directly to the European Union to keep all options open on Brexit – including the possibility of Brexit being cancelled or reversed. The groups signed an open letter to the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, asking him not to do anything that would place obstacles in the way of a new referendum – and urging him to make provision for the possible revocation of Article 50.
The letter was hand delivered on Sunday, 25 November 2018, to Mr Tusk’s office to coincide with the EU Summit, which had been arranged to finalise the Withdrawal Agreement. It calls on him to recognise that the Prime Minister, who was also in Brussels, does not represent the majority view – and that more and more people are turning against Brexit as they’ve come to understand its implications.
On Monday 19th November Parliament will debate the petition “If there is no agreement to leave the EU, then Brexit must be stopped” (https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/219905). Given recent events, the importance of this cannot be underestimated. The Brexit fantasy is falling apart. Theresa May’s deal is not satisfying (or fooling) anyone, and they are threatening we will leave the EU with no deal if it is not approved. But we don’t have to. Nobody voted for the mess we are now facing. We can stop Brexit.
SODEM (Stand of Defiance European Movement – https://sodemaction.co.uk) will be outside Parliament from 11 am on Monday demand Stop Brexit during the petition. Please join them if you can, even if it is only for a few minutes, and see that together we really can make a difference.
It would seem that we are approaching the endgame, and inevitably there is an element of despondence. All those ‘Remain’ actions over the last two years, the marches, the conferences, the ‘#StopBrexit’ events… and at this stage – unless something unexpected happens – it will all come down to a vote in the Parliament on a ‘deal’ (some version of ‘Chequers’) some time before this Christmas. In the meanwhile, there will be a major march in Central London on October 20, 2018 organised by the People’s Vote (PV), and this could be the last major ‘Remain’ event before the projected exit date in March 2019.
It is hard not to be despondent with so much political opportunism and moral cowardice among our leading politicians. Their objective is to make us passive, to somehow convince us that the inevitable will happen. However, nothing is inevitable and the power is in our hands. We need a show of force on 20 October 2018. Don’t let apathy overtake you. Make history – again. Make this march massive and give it the right character, bring your EU flags and make it a #StopBrexit march.
To be part of the #StopBrexit section of the march assemble from 11.30am at Marble Arch, London.
We are pleased to announce all 4 co-founders of Our Future Our Choice (OFOC) as speakers for the #StopBrexit Great Northern March on 24 March in Leeds.
Lara Spirit, Femi Oluwole, Will Dry and Calum Millbank-Murphy started OFOC out of frustration over the UK’s political leaders’ failure to face up to the real problems of the country – and their willingness go ahead with Brexit despite the damage it will cause.
