Pro-EU Campaigners from across Gedling borough are preparing to make a final push before Parliament votes for the proposed Brexit deal on Tuesday (15).
People from the borough are expected to join hundreds of people from across the county in Nottingham city centre tomorrow (January 12) as part of a National Day of Action.
The campaigners will be encouraging voters to write to their MPs asking them to reject Theresa May’s deal and support the campaign for a People’s Vote.
Susan Martin, one of the founding members of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire People’s Vote Campaign said: “As a raft of independent assessments – and even the Government themselves – have now acknowledged, the Government’s proposed Brexit would severely harm our economy, our NHS, and our standing in the world.
“If the Theresa May deal is approved, arguments over Brexit will go on forever because all the big questions are still unanswered.
“People don’t just have to accept a bad Brexit, they can demand their voice is heard. The public needs to have the final say on this crucial decision because, in the end, only the people can really sort this out.”
The event follows on from the People’s Vote Summer of Action, which saw hugely successful rallies take place in Bristol, Edinburgh, and London, where the People’s Vote March for the Future saw a crowd of over 700,000 take to the streets.
