People's Vote Action Day

This morning at the Winchester Buttercross we had a nice big group of friendly pro-EU campaigners (from Winchester and further afield) coming together, representing various groups like the European Movement, The 48% - Winchester, and, of course, Win-IN.

Once again many people on the High Street were happily engaging with us. Our small EU flags, badges and Citizen of Europe stickers were well received and many stories were shared about how Brexit will adversely affect (and in many cases already affects) people's lives, be they from the UK or from other EU countries.

We invited everybody to cast a vote on whether there should be a People's Vote on the Brexit deal, and also to write postcards to our local MP. Votes and postcards were gathered in a transparent ballot box and will be taken to our MP in due course.

The postcards had come from the National pro Remain Postcards Campaign and looked like this:

Finally some more photo impressions of the event:

People’s Vote campaign: Brexit is a big deal, not a done deal!

Last weekend saw activists from nine pro-European organisations launch a grassroots campaign for a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.

In support of this campaign, the Hampshire European Movement and other local organisations will hold a joint stall in Winchester on Saturday 21st April 2018, 10:30 to 1pm.
A transparent ballot box will be available and the public encouraged to cast their vote for, or against holding the People’s Vote.

Come and join us in Winchester High Street at the Buttercross, just to cast your vote, or stay and support us for an hour or two. Wear something blue, bring a flag, hope for blue skies.

You can make the difference, together we can win.

NB: please don't get confused, we have two different event notices out now - but they are both for the same event! You can sign up to this one or the other one, it doesn't matter as long as you come along!
