Leeds for Europe

The European Union has been one of the most successful peace projects in history, helping to cement cooperation and friendly relationships between European nations whilst spreading prosperity, democracy, culture and freedoms across our continent.
 
Leeds for Europe is, therefore, committed to restoring the UK’s place in the European family of nations. We will do this by:
  • campaigning for the UK to have the closest possible relationship with the European Union, including by eventually re-joining the European Union;
  • identifying, exposing and publicising the adverse consequences of Brexit as they arise, particularly highlighting the impacts on communities and businesses in Leeds and surrounding areas;
  • championing our European identity and the values of the European Union, including the promotion of peace, prosperity and the environment;
  • defending the rights of European Union citizens in the UK and UK citizens living in the European Union; and
  • promoting a greater understanding of the UK’s historic, present and future interdependence with the other countries of Europe.
We will work closely with other local, regional, national and international organisations which share our aims. We will also seek to collaborate with other campaigns who share some or all of our values, including our commitment to internationalism, democracy and free speech.
We are Europeans and we’re proud that the great city of Leeds voted to Remain! We won't stop campaigning until we are back where we belong- in the EU. #RejoinEU
