  • Grassroots for Europe Round Table Webinar: “Women's Role in Democracy and Peace”

    Tuesday, April 16, 2024 at 05:00 PM · Online only [via Zoom] in London, United Kingdom

    Across Europe's elections, women are pushing back against the hard Right.
    Politico.eu warned us on Women’s Day that “For women’s rights, the European Parliament election in June could be a watershed moment - and not in a good way.” In recent years, many of these rights have been taken away or threatened significantly. The stakes are high in the UK as well.
    Women can be the most effective peacemakers and agents of change.

    Drawing on the experience and example of our brilliant panellists, this webinar focusses on mobilising pro-European support for women's rights and agency in the cause of democracy, peace and progressive change - and how pro-Europeans can make a difference in this year's elections, and beyond.



    Our speakers:

    • Gina Miller, active citizen, champion of parliamentary democracy, founder of the True and Fair Party.
    • Helen Maguire BEM, community activist and fundraiser, retired Army officer and peacekeeper, Liberal Democrat candidate.
    • Julie Ward, former MEP (Labour), activist with Another Europe is Possible and other causes.
    • Jane Morrice, co-architect of the Good Friday Agreement, former MLA for Women's Alliance and Deputy Speaker of the Northern Ireland Assembly,
    • Kati Systä, board member of Young European Federalists (JEF).

  • Cross the Channel to celebrate 30 years of the Tunnel. May 4

    Saturday, May 04, 2024 at 08:00 AM · 5 rsvps · Calais beach in Calais

    East Kent for Europe is planning to celebrate the 30 year anniversary by reciprocal day return visits through the Channel tunnel. Calais is keen to host groups from Kent on May 4, and we plan to offer Kent hospitality to their groups on May 5. 

     

    We see this as an opportunity to make a media splash about our cross-Channel links, and highlight the benefits that the Channel tunnel has given us. So are you free to join us on May 4, crossing the Channel by Shuttle,  with posters about those benefits  ?!

    In Calais:

    Large sandy beaches for family picnics

    A nearby skate park, and another for BMX

    A lace museum with fine chronology of fashion

    Musee de Beaux Arts,

    Bleriot memorial site, for views across the channel

    The Dragon – a metal monster to frighten the holiday crowds

    Wine-tasting

    The cheapest way to travel is in a full private car (about £50 each for car of 4 passengers) by the Shuttle. You would need to manage your own booking and have valid passport.

    Notify [email protected] and you might get a free meal !
