The event will launch the campaign with a series of short contributions on why we believe that anyone who cares passionately about social justice, workers’ and human rights, and environmental protection should back an ‘in’ vote. We will celebrate migrants’ contributions to Britain and the opportunity for all UK citizens to travel and work freely in any of 28 countries.
We will tackle head on how to build the movement to reject TTIP, deliver justice to Greek citizens and challenge the pro-austerity consensus that has gripped many Governments across the EU.
This is only the beginning. We will work with movements and parties across Europe to deliver the democratic, progressive and radical reforms that many EU institutions need.
Another Europe Is Possible is a campaign to build a Europe of democracy, human rights, and social justice. We know Europe isn’t perfect but we believe that working together is infinitely better than going it alone.
We’re determined to put the EU on a path towards the social, citizen-led Europe we so urgently need.
That’s why we are saying ‘stay in Europe to change Europe’.
This is a ticketed event and space is limited. Tickets are available on Eventbrite. Tickets are free but donations will be gratefully received and help us establish a radical and progressive voice in the EU referendum. You can also find the event on Facebook.
The Live Room bar will be open for the purchase of drinks and light refreshments.
