Never mind the splits: we have 5 weeks to stop Brexit
Seven Labour MPs have left the Labour Party. But nothing has changed: we have 5 weeks to stop Brexit.19th February 2019
On Monday 18th February, seven Labour MPs resigned from the party to form ‘the Independent Group’.
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. We utterly reject the idea that the anti-Brexit movement is the property of a small faction of centrist political figures. Internationalism, solidarity, free movement, environmentalism, human rights, and workers’ unity have been, and should be, the politics of the progressive left.
We have 5 weeks to stop Brexit, with key votes in parliament and a campaign to win on the ground. From the perspective of Brexit, nothing has really changed. We should not get distracted.
Brexit would be a disaster for working class people and the communities which the left seeks to represent. If you want to stop it:
- Get involved in this weekend’s days of action
- Save the date of March 23rd – and stay tuned for details of our mobilisation for the Put It To The People national demonstration.
- Join Another Europe as a member to be a full part of the movement we need.
