Some meetings are more important than others! This Thursday’s meeting in London for a People’s Brexit could prove to be an historic turning point.
The Communist Party has worked non-stop these last three years holding meetings the length and breadth of Britain to argue the case for a left exit from the EU bosses club.
We played a small but important part in the referendum outcome in which 17.4 million people voted to Leave. We have pamphleteered relentlessly, held indoor and outdoor meetings, lobbied the TUC and sought progressive allies who could argue alongside us for the interests of the people in a struggle dominated so far on both sides by the Right.
The historic achievement of a Leave result is now under threat. The labour movement and Labour Party are divided when unity could never be more vital. There is more than a whiff of opportunism in both organisations. Some elements claiming to be on the left have taken billionaires’ money to campaign to undo the massive democratic mandate and force us to vote, vote and vote again till we vote for EU membership.
This Thursday, we have played a central part in bringing together political forces, including some in the Labour Party, on the left and in the trade unions for a public meeting in support of a People’s Brexit. And at this meeting, if attendance is significant, we want to persuade participants to turn it from a meeting into an all-Britain campaign. From there, the case for a People’s Brexit can be taken to major cities and towns across England, Scotland and Wales.
We urge you to circulate that flyer as far as you can to those who you think may attend. If you are already planning on attending don’t come alone. Bring friends, workmates and fellow community, union, anti-racist and women’s movement activists. It’s going to be an historic night.
Please come along, raise your voice and take part!
Yours in comradeship,
