Groups campaigning for a People’s Vote will be out in force on the streets of Nottingham on the 8th of December for a National Day of Action involving thousands of people across the UK.
Nottingham has been chosen as the flagship event for the People’s Vote campaign in the east Midlands. The members of the campaign will be running a stall in the Old Market Square, next to the lions, between 10:30am and 3pm.
Events are taking place all over the country, with thousands of activists and supporters expected to be involved. Street stalls will be set up in different towns and cities across the UK. This will be the last action day before Parliament votes on the deal on December 11th.
There will be the chance to write a postcard to MPs, fill in the brexitometer, and to find out more about the online Not Buying It campaign. The question is, do the Nottingham locals know that this event is coming to the city and will they be in attendance?
The Nottingham event is one of eleven regional flagship events throughout the country, as well as a rally in Sheffield to highlight that public opinion is moving away from supporting Brexit in Yorkshire and the Humber.
Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry demanded a People’s vote during a speech in November at the house of Commons. She said:
“The reason why the people of this country are so fed up is because they’ve been made so many promises, none of which have been delivered upon because they can’t be delivered upon.”Anna Soubry
Nottingham has been the only city in the East Midlands chosen be host the flagship event.
