North East for Europe

News:

Open meeting and social for all supporters

At North East for Europe we want to reach and engage with people in all parts of the region and to work with and assist other groups in the region that share our aims of stopping Brexit and convincing people of the importance of staying in the EU.

On Friday 17th November, at 7pm in Newcastle Cricket Club on Osborne Avenue, Jesmond NE2 1JS , we have an open meeting for all like-minded people, where we want to develop plans for the coming months by listening to your ideas and sharing some of our own.

It will be great opportunity to find out how you can get involved in helping the UK to stay in the EU and stopping Brexit, and it's also a way of meeting up with like-minded new friends. There is a bar and the venue is fully wheelchair accessible.

You can tell us you are coming (helps us plan!), or just turn up

We want a country that works for everyone, and one that is open, tolerant and part of the European Union, with all the rights and benefits that has brought us.

In the referendum vote on 23rd June 2016 Newcastle was one of the places where the majority of voters were for "Remain". The North East as a region voted to leave, but as the region with strongest manufacturing trade with Europe we are a region where Brexit puts many people's jobs at risk.

Whatever one thinks of the referendum campaigns and result, we still live in a democracy, we have a right to continue to say why we think the whole country is better remaining in the European Union, and we plan to continue to do this.

North East for Europe believes that Britain is better off (economically, socially and culturally)as part of the European Union and we think that as the implications of Brexit (and especially, a hard Brexit) become clearer, the case for remaining in the EU will become stronger and more popular.

Throughout the Brexit negotiations and the twists and turns of politics at Westminster, we will continue to argue and campaign in favour of EU membership and against Brexit. We will work with people from all parties and none where we can work together to oppose Brexit and to maintain the strongest possible relationship with the European Union.
