As MPs gather for the 'meaningful vote' in Parliament on Theresa May's Deal, we'll gather to show people what WE think. Bring flags, wear t-shirts and hats, and we'll have cards to hold - 'We reject this Brexit Deal' and 'We Demand a People's Vote'.
Street stall organised by Cornwall for Europe
Tickets (free) available via eventbrite.
Doors open from 6pm. Please come along early and say 'hi' before the meeting starts. The pub serves food and drink so make an evening of it!
Baroness Kath Pinnock, Liberal Democrat Peer and local councillor
Mary Creagh, MP for Wakefield

We will be talking about:
- People's Vote UK
- Grassroots campaigning
- The need to find a consensus
- The need for democratic reform
- Why this matters so much to us in the Yorkshire area
- The benefits of being part of the EU!
Further details and guest speakers to be announced closer to the time. Please spread the word.
Members meeting follows afterwards.
Those who sign up to become members will be invited to stay on to discuss next steps and committee roles. We need as many people as possible to volunteer to help with street stalls, leafletting, letter writing and general campaign organisation. This needs all our effort, big or small!
Let’s get out there again to keep up the momentum and push for a People’s Vote! We’ll be handing out leaflets and encouraging people to mark their views on the Brexitometer
Amelia Womack (Deputy Leader of GPEW & founder of Another Europe is Possible) and Femi Oluwole (Spokesperson and co-founder for OFOC) will each be giving us a 10-15 minute talk on their view of Brexit and what might come next, particularly with regards to the environment and younger people followed by time for questions from the audience.
Amelia Womack has spent plenty of time in and around politics and Westminster as deputy Leader of the Green Party of England and Wales, now on her third term having been chosen again in September 2018.
Femi Oluwole is a spokesperson and co-founder of Our Future, Our Choice, an organisation setup in 2017 to provide a voice and advocacy for younger people affected by Brexit.
Whilst both speakers are pro-remain, this event is open to people of all view points for polite and reasonable discussion.
