Another Europe is Possible is a cross-party campaign and does not take a position on whether or not people should join the Labour Party. We argue inside every party, trade union and campaign for a radical internationalist agenda – for free movement and solidarity between people and across borders.

We have led the campaign within Labour for a public vote on Brexit. That campaign has the support of the overwhelming majority of Labour members, including on the left.
