Jean Lambert, Green MEP for London:
“The EU is absolutely the best place for European countries to design policies together to collectively meet our energy needs whilst phasing out fossil fuels.”
There will be an EU Referendum debate on 14th June at Friends Meeting House, Nottingham (7:30pm).
What’s interesting about this debate, which will feature campaigners from Leave and Remain, is that the focus will be on issues beyond the financial. The debate will explore wider social, environmental and philosophical issues. This is being organized by local Quaker groups.
For further details, see their poster.
The upcoming EU referendum means we could lose many rights we enjoy as workers, consumers and citizens – and vital protections for wildlife and nature that the EU gives us.
That’s why the Green Party is campaigning to stay in the EU – and to change the EU for the better.
We can’t leave the argument for remaining in the EU to friends of big business.
We need your voice to build a powerful Green campaign for a European Union that puts people and environment first – so please sign our petition.
Broxtowe’s first European Union Referendum debate took place in Beeston tonight at the Parish Church. A range of panelists, including Chris Barnett, a futures specialist, and the BBC’s John Hess, tried to help the audience make sense of the referendum and the issues involved. A lively debate ensued with plenty of questions and comments from the audience.
A straw poll gave ‘Remain’ the lead, but around 20% of the audience were yet to make their minds up.
The first of many in the local area no doubt.
