Pro-European activists taking to the streets across the UK for our largest ever National Day of Action

Pro-European groups will be out in force on Saturday 14 April for our largest ever joint grassroots National Day of Action, with hundreds of events taking place all across the country. 

Activists and supporters from Open Britain, the European Movement and Britain for Europe will take to the streets for twelve flagship events in every part of the UK: 

South West

South East

Ashford

London

Sutton

St Albans

As well as the twelve flagship events, there will be over 350 events taking place up and down the UK, from Aberdeen in the north of Scotland, to Falmouth in the south of Cornwall. Thousands of activists and supporters will be taking part, 500,000 leaflets will be handed out, and more than 100 street stalls will be set up in towns and cities the length and breadth of the country, in areas that voted both Remain and Leave.

This largest ever pro-European National Day of Action will lead into the launch on Sunday 15 April of a new People’s Vote campaign, calling for the British people to be given a vote on the Brexit deal.

 

James McGrory, Executive Director of Open Britain, said:

“Our largest ever National Day of Action is all about bringing together the various pro-European groups so that we can speak with one, unified, voice because we know that together we are stronger.”

 

James MacCleary, Campaign Director of European Movement UK, said:

“The pro-European movement is gaining in strength and momentum and that progress will be reflected this weekend 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.”
