On Saturday 15th September 2018 activists and supporters from Open Britain, the European Movement and Britain for Europe will take to the streets and run a stall in Buckingham, Buckinghamshire.
This pro-European event follows the difficult Brexit negotiations and the ensuing acceleration in the People’s Vote campaign, calling for the British people to be given a vote on the final Brexit deal.
Hélène Lens of Open Britain Aylesbury, said: ‘I’m delighted we are carrying on the push for the People’s Vote (PV) campaign on the final Brexit deal in Buckingham. Hundreds of People’s Vote supporters have recently signed up in local towns such as Aylesbury, Thame and Milton Keynes. The future of the country is too important to be decided by politicians alone, especially as they cannot unite for the national interest. No one voted to be poorer or for public services like the NHS to suffer. Brexit is a big deal but definitely not a done deal.‘
Robin Storey, Open Britain Thame, said: ‘It’s great to be out campaigning in Buckingham alongside other pro-European activists and talking to local people about making sure they get a say on the final Brexit deal. With Brexit turning out to be much more complicated and costly than people were told during the referendum, we are demanding a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.‘
James MacCleary, Campaign Director of European Movement UK, said: ‘The pro-European movement is gaining in strength and momentum with a huge demonstration of grassroots power in favour of a People’s Vote on the Brexit deal.‘
Anne Weyman, Vice Chair of Britain for Europe, said: ‘We may come from different political parties, different traditions and different groups, but we are united by our desire for the people to have their say on the Brexit deal and we are determined to make sure their voice is heard loud and clear.‘
