17TH MAY EUROPEAN ELECTIONS AND CAMPAIGN STALL

*|MC_PREVIEW_TEXT|*

Winchester Campaigning - Saturday 

The European Elections are now less than a week away.  It is vital that everyone uses their vote next Thursday to back Remain parties and show that we want to stop Brexit.

Tomorow, Saturday 18th, we will be holding a street stall in Winchester from 10.30am to 1pm, at the Buttercross in the High Street.  We will be encouraging people to use their vote to back Remain parties and stop Nigel Farage's Brexit party claiming a mandate.  Please come along for as short or long as you are able to show your support - we will aim to take a group picture at 12 noon to show the strength of support to local press etc.  Join and share the event on Facebook here.

The People's Vote Test

Much has been written and said about how to best use your vote for remain and to stop brexit.  As cross-party groups the European Movement, and the People's Vote, cannot recommend one party over another.  What you can do however is check which parties in the region have passed the 'People's Vote Test' which you can find here. This is a test if the party support a public vote on Brexit.

Here in the South East four parties pass the test - Change UK, the Green Party, the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats, with some additional comments provided.  The nature of this regional election means that a vote for any party in Winchester or Eastleigh is worth the same as one in Southampton, Brighton or anywhere across the South East so people should consider on this broader than usual basis which party they feel that they would like to support.  The BBC have provided an outline of the proportional representation system used here.  Remember that it is simply a single X next to the party of your choice on the ballot paper on Thursday. 

Please encourage everyone you know to use their vote and let's hope for a clear majority of anti-Brexit votes once counted next Sunday.

Recruit More Local Supporters

We all know people who are anti-Brexit but not involved in the local campaign.  We have a new sign-up form which can be used for people to sign up quickly to our list, please share the link or forward this email.
