Another Europe Is Possible was formed in February 2016 to campaign for a Remain position in the EU referendum from a specifically left, progressive perspective. We came together from across the spectrum of the progressive left, working across party political lines to campaign for democracy, human rights, and social justice.
After the bitter disappointment of the referendum result we are continuing our campaign to #StopToryBrexit. Because we believe the best deal is still membership of the EU, we remain opposed to even the softest forms of Brexit. That’s why we back a referendum on the deal with an option to remain in the EU.
Brexit is a national disaster for Britain, but it is not a “British problem”. All over Europe faith in the project of unity has eroded. Free-market thinking has dominated EU institutions for too long. Many people no longer have faith in the capacity of European democracies to deliver social justice by working together for the common good.
To rebuild this hope, the EU requires radical and far-reaching reform, breaking with austerity economics and pioneering a radically new development strategy. That’s why we are actively working together with international partners, such as European Alternatives, to campaign for political change across the continent.
