European Movement UK has today launched a massive #No2NoDeal online lobbying campaign and day of action aimed at highlighting the risks of, and preventing, a No Deal Brexit at the end of the year.
Taking place on Thursday 08 October 2020, the day will see thousands of activists, in constituencies across the UK, hold virtual meetings with their MPs to raise their concerns about the effects that a No Deal Brexit could have on communities, local businesses, and the NHS.
Says Hugo Mann, Campaigns Director of European Movement UK:
“With 100 days until the end of the transition period, time is running out to avoid a catastrophic No Deal Brexit. At this moment of national crisis, we should be thinking about protecting our NHS, our communities, and jobs. Instead, Boris Johnson is threatening to put party politics ahead of the national interest in the midst of a global pandemic.
That is why we are calling on people from every town and city to join us on 08 October to say #No2NoDeal. This is a historic moment for the European Movement, and that is why we are throwing everything at it. Let’s make this the moment that we stood together and stopped No Deal – once and for all.”
The day of action will culminate in a massive online rally at 7pm where cross-party MPs, celebrities, and grassroots activists will take to their webcams and call on the UK government to take No Deal off the table – for good.
The rally follows a similar event in June which saw over 10,000 people tune in to hear speakers from 8 political parties, and the Welsh and Northern Irish parliaments, speak about how preventing a No Deal Brexit will protect both our NHS and the UK’s reputation around the world.
