Pro-European campaigners taking to the streets of Aylesbury on Sat 8th Dec 2018 as part of People’s Vote National Day of Action

| December 7, 2018

Groups campaigning for a People’s Vote will be out in force on the streets of Aylesbury on Saturday 8th December 2018 for a National Day of Action involving thousands of people across the UK.

On Saturday 8th December 2018 campaigners from Open Britain Aylesbury will set up a stall near to Metro Bank in the Market Square at Aylesbury from 11.00am to 1.00pm.

The National Day of Action is being organised by activists and supporters from the People’s Vote Campaign, just days before a crucial vote in Parliament on the Governments Brexit plans.

As well as the event in the Market Square in Aylesbury there will also be events are taking place all over the country, with thousands of activists and supporters involved. Street stalls will be set up in towns and cities the length and breadth of the country. This will be the last action day before Parliament votes on the deal on Tuesday 11th December 2018.

Saturday’s National Day of Action follows the People’s Vote Summer of Action, which saw hugely successful rallies take place across the country, including in Bristol, Edinburgh, and in London, where the People’s Vote March for the Future saw a crowd of over 700,000 take to the streets.

There will also be eleven regional flagship events throughout the country, as well as a rally in Sheffield to highlight that public opinion is moving away from supporting Brexit in Yorkshire and the Humber.

Opinion Polls consistently show a clear majority of voters in most constituencies across Britain want their say on Brexit in a People’s Vote. A major poll in August 2018, showed that Aylesbury constituents would now vote Remain. This was reconfirmed by the more recent poll on Channel 4.

As part of the Governments Brexit deal, the UK has agreed to pay a £50 billion divorce bill, but we will get nothing in return. Instead, we will lose all our rights as an EU member – with less trade, fewer opportunities, and lower living standards.

British people will lose their Freedom of Movement… the right to live, love, work or study visa-free around Europe. And following what would be the biggest single biggest loss of sovereignty and control in British history, we would continue to follow EU rules, but have no say over how they are made.

Even the government itself has now admitted that the Brexit deal will severely harm our economy. Dominic Raab, the Cabinet Minister who was supposedly responsible for negotiating Brexit, has said this deal is worse than staying in the EU.

Hélène Lens, of Open Britain Aylesbury said: ‘People don’t just have to accept a bad Brexit, they can demand their voice is heard. The public needs to have the final say on this crucial decision because, in the end, only the people can really sort this out.
