Groups campaigning for a People’s Vote will be out in force this Saturday (18 May) for a day of action across the UK.
Activists and supporters from the People’s Vote campaign will take to the streets of their local communities, engaging with members of the public, setting up street stalls, handing out leaflets and arguing the case for the public to be given the final say on Brexit.
There will be around 75 events in areas up and down the whole UK, in places that voted to leave as well as those that voted to remain, all to raise awareness of next week’s European elections and to persuade people to vote for people and parties that support a People’s Vote.
The People’s Vote campaign has also set up a website, https://www.peoplesvotetest.uk/, which allows voters to identify the parties that support the principle of a People’s Vote in their local area, and helps them register to vote.
Mary Gregory, local campaigner for a People’s Vote in Merseyside, said:
“With the European Elections coming up, we have a chance to send a message that it’s time to give the final say on Brexit back to the people. That’s why campaigners and activists will be out in their local communities this Saturday encouraging people to vote for parties that support the principle of a People’s Vote.
“No matter whether you voted remain or leave in 2016, we can all agree that Brexit is a mess and that many of the promises made in the referendum have been broken. That’s why it’s surely now time to let the public back into this process.
“The only way to resolve Brexit in a lasting and meaningful way is to allow the public to be given the final say. And that’s the argument we’ll be making in towns and cities across the UK this weekend.”
