#Intogether’s National Day of Action to make positive case to remain in the EU

Black long with hashtag-2With the local elections behind us, the time has come to turn our full attention as a Party to the upcoming Europe Referendum which is just 6 weeks away. On 23rd June, Britain must decide what kind of country we want to be: inward-looking and cut off from the world or proudly leading from the front, at the heart of Europe.

Tonight, Tim Farron, speaking in London, will make the positive, progressive case for Britain remaining in Europe, recognising the future benefits of close relations with our neighbours and natural partners, and how investing in each other’s economies and sharing in prosperity can make Britain even greater than it is now.

This Saturday we are hosting our first National Day of Action of the #INtogether campaign and the response from local parties has been overwhelming! We have 199 street stalls planned across the country, with well over 150 local parties taking part.

We are organising street stalls up and down the country in a highly-visible campaign to show that the Liberal Democrats are out campaigning and united in our support for Britain’s future in Europe. This is a huge opportunity for the Liberal Democrats to make our mark on the broader campaign.

We also have over 50 activists from sister parties across Europe coming to help out. We are currently just one street stall short of our ambitious target of 200 so please do help us spread the word! 

If you want to get involved in your local party street stall event you can find all the listings here: http://www.libdems.org.uk/europe-events.

  • It never ceases to amaze how quickly a call for a positive case to Remain so rapidly goes down the pan into blatant negative deception,…” ….. what kind of country we want to be: inward-looking and cut off from the world,….”
    My understanding is the very opposite, in that the goal of Leave [one of the goals], is to re-connect with the rest of the world without needing to ask the permission of 27 other countries first? If I’m wrong, can you please point us to the bit of the Leave campaign that says specifically, we should cut ourselves off from the world,… as I seem to have missed it?

    The people of the United Kingdom have to know the truth about what is on the horizon with staying in the EU.

    Although the following blog has some horrific pictures displayed within others, to show what we risk with ‘staying in’ the EU, they have to be published. Indeed they are published on the ‘Catholic on-line’ website and have been extracted from their web article for all to see concerning the atrocities against Christians by ISIS (see references below the article, if you visit the site to view the Catholic on-line article – it is heart wrenching to say the least).

  • @ J Dunn – with respect I’m not going to pick apart whether a LibDemVoice article has bias towards remaining in the EU 😉

    What I would say though is a themed “Day of Action” supported by HQ providing campaign boxes with material and whatnot to setup a street stall is a REALLY good idea. Sometimes we all need a little nudge to get things done and making this as easy as possible for local parties to do is brilliant. Maybe in the future we can do similar on other important national topics (housing, human rights, etc)

  • @J Dunn
    The phrase ‘blatant deception’ and an insinuation that there is some sort of EU ban on dealing with the rest of world, both in the same post, shows quite an amazing level of cheek.

  • And for those of us wanting the outs to win…….

    J Dunn Trade. Empire preference is over. please see Burmese Days by George Orwell.

  • @Gareth Wilson Glad that you like the Action Day boxes. Thanks from the team at HQ.

    One of our stall organisers has just popped into the office to pick up a boxfull. She was delighted with the materials and has headed off happy 🙂

    Thanks to the team for putting these together.

    After going bankrupt under socialism Burma is opening up to the world as part of the Asean Economic Community.

  • J Dunn
    Britain has increased its trade with the rest of the non EU world in the last few years. Being part of the EU doesn’t stop overseas trade. There is Marmite on the shelves of the supermarkets in Asia.
