Pamphlet: The Left Against Brexit – an internationalist case for Europe

Brexit is a hard right Tory project – the only way to resist it is from the left. This pamphlet puts forward our distinct, left wing reasons to oppose leaving the EU.

19th September 2018


Brexit is a Tory plot to turn Britain into an offshore tax haven with a deregulated economy, do dodgy trade deals with Donald Trump and move the country into the US sphere of influence. The left should be on the front lines of the resistance to this hard right takeover.

But hang on: isn’t the EU a ‘neoliberal project’? Wouldn’t it stop a Corbyn-led government from renationalising the railways? And what about Greece, and Fortress Europe?

These arguments and more are answered in this pamphlet, which puts forward distinct left wing reasons to oppose Brexit. Our case, unlike the centrists who have given anti-Brexit activism a bad name, is committed to freedom of movement, workers’ rights – and a Corbyn government.

This is our internationalist case for Europe.
