Transforming Britain After Brexit
A National Tour
We all have hopes, fears and uncertainties about what will happen when the UK leaves the EU on 29 March.
The British establishment has been on overdrive to tell working people that life outside the EU will be bad. The opposite is the case. There will be new opportunities to change the economy, strengthen our democracy, and improve the lives of the majority. We should take heart and be confident.
Despite wall-to-wall media coverage of Brexit, the story of how membership of the EU has weakened our economy and divided our country has rarely been told. The even bigger story of the deep crisis currently gripping the EU is almost completely avoided by the press. The EU reigns over economic stagnation and deepening political disorder in many of its member states. As in Britain, the peoples of Europe are struggling to assert control over their own societies.
Come and hear from leading figures how the British economy can be restructured after Brexit to benefit working people and trade unionists. We will be able to adopt policies that bring strong growth with good jobs, more equality and better prospects for all. Brexit can also bring democratic renewal and hope that the country needs. Our young people live in an independent nation that is forward-looking and open. One in which the engagement of us all in the political life of the nation is welcomed, not feared. Come and discuss the opportunity that Brexit gives us to free our country from the straitjacket of the last 40 years.
Working and young people and their families are very welcome.
A key speaker at each public meeting will be The Full Brexit co-founder Costas Lapavitsas, whose recent best-selling book, The Left Case Against the EU, has woken up a new generation to the real issues at stake. Costas is a distinguished Professor of Economics at the University of London, and was a member of the Greek parliament when the EU was tearing that country apart.
Others speakers will include leading trade unionists, journalists, think tankers and academics - details below in each event link.
