Ethnic Minorities for a People’s Vote will be campaigning for a People’s Vote this Sunday at Notting Hill Carnival.
Campaigners and activists will be based near Notting Hill Gate station talking to carnival attendees about a People’s Vote and the impact of Brexit on the ethnic minority community.
Prime Minister, Boris Johnson is threatening to pull the UK out of the European Union on October 31st without a deal. But a disastrous No Deal would have devastating consequences for the UK’s economy, jobs and businesses, and there is no democratic mandate for it.
Ethnic Minorities for a People’s Vote focuses on the impact of Brexit on ethnic minority communities.
Ethnic Minority for a People’s Vote co-campaign manager, Lauren Pemberton-Nelson said:
“We’re so excited to be at the second biggest carnival in the world talking to people about how Brexit could impact them.
“The Brexit now being talked up by Boris Johnson is a million miles from what they were promising in 2016.
“Crashing out of the EU without a deal would threaten the economy, and ethnic minorities are already disproportionately impacted by economic damage.”
Ethnic Minorities for a People’s Vote co-campaign manager, Bashir Ibrahim said:
“Far from resolving Brexit, leaving the EU without a deal would make the crisis worse and guarantee the arguments, pain and chaos carry on and on.
“We’ve already seen hate crime against ethnic minorities and religious groups increase.
“The public has never given its express consent to this prospect and in a democracy, it is the British people who must have the final say.”
