VIDEOS: Democracy, Europe and the #DealWeNeed
Some 300 people turned out for Another Europe’s public event on the 5th December9th December 2016
To coincide with the start of the Supreme Court hearing of Theresa May’s bid to stop parliament voting on Article 50, Another Europe brought its supporters together in London to discuss the kind of deal with Europe we need.
