Who are we?
Cheltenham for Europe is a grass roots, non-party political organisation campaigning to ensure that the UK remains a member of the European Union – one that champions peace, prosperity, human rights and the environment.
What do we want to do?
Working with other Britain for Europe groups around the UK we use traditional democratic means to seek to remain in the EU – for example ensuring that Parliament is fully involved in every stage of the process and gets a final vote on the negotiated proposals to leave the EU, with the option to remain included.
Isn’t it all over?
No. While many voted to leave the EU, there is no mandate for any particular form of Brexit. Given promises made in the referendum that are already unravelling, it is not clear if there is a majority for the kind of Brexit that will finally be on offer. The majority of people may, after all, prefer to stay.
Furthermore, whatever happens next we will campaign to maintain the UK’s economic prosperity, the rights of EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the EU, free movement in the EU, and the social and environmental protections stemming from the EU.
