Campaigners from the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire People’s Vote campaign group seeking a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal will be out in force on Saturday (29 September) as part of a National Day of Action.
More than 100 groups are taking part in towns and cities across the UK.
The local People’s Vote group only formed in August but is growing rapidly with nearly a hundred committed campaigners. They’ll be running a stall in Market Square from 11 am to 3 pm giving everyone, whether they voted Leave or Remain, a chance to have their say on the progress of the Brexit negotiations.
People will be able to express their views through the ‘Brexitometer’ – a visual display of how they feel the Brexit process is going.
They will also be invited to sign a petition demanding the right to a People’s Vote on the final deal.
Susan Martin, one of the founding members of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire People’s Vote Group, said:
“We’ve already run some stalls in the last few weeks and it’s clear that the mood in the local area is changing, with people realising that the final Brexit deal will be nothing like what was promised in the referendum campaign.
“Some we spoke to said they voted Leave but now feel they’ve been deceived and want to change their mind. The message from this campaign is we want the country to be allowed a vote on the deal.”
There will be more than 100 local groups participating across the UK, with thousands of activists and supporters taking part, over 1 million leaflets ordered, and with street stalls due to be set up in towns and cities the length and breadth of the country, in areas that voted both Remain and Leave.
This People’s Vote National Day of Action follows on from the hugely successful People’s Vote Summer of Action, which saw mass rallies take place in Bristol, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Cambridge and Cardiff.
This is all leading up to the People’s Vote March for the Future in London on October 20th, which is expected to be the largest Brexit-related march so far, larger than the previous People’s Vote march which was attended by over 100,000 people.
