Grassroots Pro-EU Groups Urge EU to
Keep Door Open for "No Brexit"

Pro-EU groups from across the UK have made a direct appeal to the European Union to keep all options open on Brexit - including the possibility of Brexit being cancelled or reversed.

More than a hundred grassroots campaigning groups, including Leeds for Europe, have signed an open letter to the President of the Eurooean Council, Donald Tusk, asking him not to do anything that would place obstacles in the way of a new referendum - and urging him to make provision for the possible revocation of Article 50.

The initiative has been coordinated by "Grassroots for Europe", a network of local activist groups across the UK and beyond, in what is fast becoming the EU's largest pro-European mass movement.

The letter was hand delivered on Sunday, 25 November 2018, to Mr Tusk's office to coincide with the EU Summit, which had been arranged to finalise the Withdrawal Agreement.  It calls on him to recognise that the Prime Minister, who was also in Brussels, does not represent the majority view -  and that more and more people are turning against Brexit as they've come to understand its implicationsYou can download the Press Release which accompanies the letter here:
