Greens campaign for a People’s Vote

On 23rd June, Green Party members joined over 100,000 people who marched on Parliament Square to demand a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.

Green Party Leader, Caroline Lucas, was among the speakers who argued the case for Britain to remain in the EU at the rally in London.  Caroline said that a new political consensus needed to be built around the campaign to remain in the European Union.

We can’t afford to be defenders of the establishment, of some kind of vapid centrism that has failed in the past and will fail again. Our campaign must be radical, it must be young, it must be diverse; it must listen to people, empower them and create reasons for hope; it mustn’t simply make economic threats and call those who threatened to leave ‘stupid’. We must be different to win and we have to win.

On freedom of movement, Caroline said that it was a “precious gift to be able to travel, work, study and live and love in 27 countries,” continuing: “We should be celebrating freedom of movement, not apologising for it!
