The LGBT+ for a People's Vote team headed to Westminster University on Saturday to speak to LGBT+ students about Brexit, as National Student Pride officially came out in support for a People's Vote!
A huge thanks to everyone who came along to our stall to speak to us, sign up for campaign news, or even just grab a badge. Other stall holders included Channel 4 Pride, Switchboard, and the new queer social media site Squad Social.
We loved speaking on the main stage about why campaigning for a People's Vote is so important for the LGBT+ community, and what the EU has done over the decades for our rights.Read more
LGBT+ for a People's Vote supporter Rosie McKenna writes for the Metro on why the Good Friday Agreement should not be put at stake in the Brexit negotiations.
"There are only two choices on the table which do not bring back a hard border: Theresa May’s Deal, with a backstop, or staying within the European Union. A public vote (whatever the options) would flush this out immediately. There’s no more room for fantasy and no-deal Brexiters know it which is why they’re terrified of a People’s Vote. It will allow us to give our verdict on a shambolic set of negotiations, that puts Northern Ireland at risk. It will give us certainty, one way or another."
On Tuesday 15th January 2019, the Government suffered the biggest defeat of any Government in history, as her Brexit bill was voted down by 432 MPs.
