ABOUT OUR CAMPAIGN

About us
We are a local pro-European grassroots group, formed in early 2016, which campaigns for the UK to remain a full member of the European Union as this will be in the best interests of the UK and all who live here. We are proud to be members of the EU, and also proud of this country. We believe any form of Brexit, and especially the divisive and extreme no-deal Brexit that is now Government policy, will be a disaster for the UK. 

 

We are the Greenwich branch of European Movement UK and are members of Britain for Europe. We are also part of the cross-party People's Vote campaign, which is campaigning for a second referendum on any Brexit deal. 
     
If you share our concerns, and want to do something about the direction that the UK is heading in, then get in touch. There is a lot that can still be done to defend our way of life. We will continue to stand up for our beliefs no matter what the future holds.

What we do

Greenwich for Europe - Visiting the Houses of Parliament

Lobbying politicians
We lobby MPs and MEPs to act in the best 
interests of the UK, not blindly follow a whip.

 

We have also held several meetings with Matthew Pennycook MP, Shadow Minister for Brexit to discuss the current crisis.

Community Engagement
We hold street stalls, in collaboration with other grassroots groups, and attend events in the community where possible.

 

We also created a survey to determine the local impact and fears of Brexit when Article 50 passed its 1st vote in Parliament

Supporting pro-EU movements

We take part in pro-EU demonstrations and marches, and proudly support events which show solidarity with our European friends and neighbours

 

We campaign for the most pro-EU candidate in by-elections, regardless of their party, as we did in Richmond for Sarah Olney MP.
