Panel Event – Stopping Brexit: Campaigning to win – hearts, minds and votes
In Oxford, December 6th, 2018.
A public panel event hosted by Oxford for Europe, co-sponsored by European Movement (Oxford region) and Oxford European Association, chaired by Justen Hyde (Oxford for Europe)
How do we get a People’s Vote on Brexit? How do we win it?
With the government poised to offer the nation a terrible Brexit deal that no one voted for, our panel spoke and took questions on some key issues:
– Tackling the causes of Brexit, including austerity and widening inequality.
– Building a cross-Party majority in Parliament to reject the deal and no deal.
– National and grassroots campaigning for an informed People’s Vote on the deal.
– Using the resources and techniques required to build public opinion in support of EU membership.
