Bremain Chair Sue Wilson attends a screening of ‘Postcards from the 48%’ in London and takes part in a Q&A afterwards. Here’s her story:
On the eve of May’s big away-day at Chequers, I flew into London for my latest flying visit. Arriving late in the evening, my visit didn’t start until the following morning, Friday 6th July, when I headed into central London.

No trip to London would be complete without dropping in on Steven Bray & the SODEM protest outside parliament. MPs were very thin on the ground today, & a small rally in favour of the legalisation of cannabis was taking centre stage. Steve’s team were also pushed sideways by the BBC, who were setting up a mobile studio in advance of the forthcoming RAF centenary celebrations. Despite all that, & the scorching heat, SODEM were making themselves seen & heard as always. On a day like today, with temperatures exceeding 30 degrees, it really brings home Steve’s commitment, come rain or shine, to be there all day, every day.

I later met with Peter French to find out more about his plans for the big march on Westminster planned for 20th October. Peter is currently in discussions with other significant groups within the remain movement, to see how they can all work together to make this the biggest, the best, the most noticeable pro-European event this country has ever seen.

Over the next few weeks you can expect to hear a lot more about how those plans are developing. We already have more Bremain in Spain members attending this event than ever before. Join us! It’s going to be a day to remember for a very long time!

Following our meeting, Peter & I made our way to Mile End Road, where we met with David Nicholas Wilkinson, the Director of the Remain movie “Postcards from the 48%”. Peter & I had both been invited, along with Femi & Nina de Ayala Parker of Our Future Our Choice, to be on the Q & A panel following the screening of the movie at the Genesis Cinema. We had all seen the movie before (& are all in it), & Peter, Femi & I were on the panel together in Brussels when the film originally premiered in the European Parliament. The reception & feedback in Brussels had been fantastic, but I was curious to see how a London audience would react.

When we arrived at the cinema, we were greeted by a welcome party of campaigners waving European flags. I had expected the audience to all come from London, but some had travelled quite some distance especially to see the film. The film was very well received & as the credits rolled, there was cheering & applause. Almost all the audience then hung around for the Q & A session afterwards, despite it being after 11 pm when the film finally finished.

There are almost 40 screenings planned between now & the end of August, all over the UK. If you get the chance to see the movie, I would highly recommend it. Finally, the voices of the 48% will be heard.
