On Saturday there is a march in London, one that is about principles that go to the heart of the UK’s democracy.
The UK’s democracy is founded on fundamental principles: the sovereignty of parliament, freedom of speech, the right to argue the alternative view among them.
Many diverse groups will be represented in the march; the common element is their opposition to the autocratic, even dictatorial tone coming from Theresa May.
Members of The People’s Challenge will be present to help to make sure that decision-makers inside and outside the UK realise that the Deal/No Deal approach to Brexit being pursued by the Prime Minister is not the only view held by the people of the UK.
It is important that we “Stop the Silence”, the silence the Brexiters and the Government are using to try to stifle democracy and reasoned debate.
We must support all those who have relied on the UK’s tolerant and welcoming attitude to establish their homes in the UK, and those from the UK who have relied on the UK’s word and gone to work with or establish themselves among our European friends.
It must not be forgotten that the rights of UK citizens resident in the UK are also under threat, including the right to work and trade across the EU borders, the right to reciprocal health care in EU countries, including those many popular holiday destinations.
The People’s Challenge will be travelling from far and wide, including, Gibraltar, Wales and France to attend this event.
So we ask you, our supporters, to attend this march and encourage others to do the same so that our voice can be heard clearly and unambiguously.
We will be gathering outside the Dorchester on Park Lane from 10:00 onwards, look for our banner.
Be there or be square!
