What can you do to support the Remain cause?
Write to Politicians
In order to stop Brexit from happening, it is vital that you continue to put pressure on your MP, your MEPs, and the members of the House of Lords.
Generally, emails are more likely to gain attention and a response than letters, but postcards are also quite eye catching. Always remember to include your full postal address, or your correspondence will be returned or destroyed. It’s a good idea to tell them about your personal circumstances, and to ask them to take a specific action, for example, to vote a certain way in a debate.
There are more Brexit related petitions that on any subject ever in British politics. With so many to choose from, it really is down to personal choice and recommendation. A petition requires 100,000 signatures to require a debate in parliament, and is another way to keep pressure on MPs and to keep the Remain cause visible.
Latest Projects, Facebook and Twitter
All the latest activities and actions are posted frequently on our Bremain in Spain Facebook Group. If not already a member you can join and check-in regularly to hear what we are up to and how you could be involved. You could also join one of our teams of Volunteers, and offer to help with writing, social media, representing your town or region, or doing some research. No special skills are required, but if you have them, even better. Follow us on Twitter or ‘LIke’ our Facebook Page to get even more updates.
Changing Public Opinion
In order to persuade many MPs to vote in the best interests of the country, they need to have confidence that the majority of the public support them. Public opinion is gradually changing, as the realities of the cost of Brexit are becoming more apparent. It’s up to all of us to keep the subject alive and to persuade and explain why we should Remain in the EU.
Many Remain voters believe that leaving the EU is inevitable and have therefore given up the fight. We must encourage them to join us and give them hope of a successful outcome. Many Leavers have had second thoughts about Brexit, or never really wanted to leave the EU in the first place.
Campaigns & Events
As Bremain in Spain grows in size and stature, we have become increasingly involved in direct action, and support, of many Campaigns and Events to fulfil our objectives. Our Bremain Team and many volunteers work tirelessly on a daily basis. Please join us and help in any way you can…. every little helps!
As time moves on, I believe even more Leave voters will be persuaded to support us. We must accept that not every Leave voter is stupid and/or racist, and that many feel, like we do, that they made their decision with the best interests of the country at heart.
If we are to be successful in changing opinions, we must be prepared to engage & to listen. Good luck!
