V) Sat 12th Oct - Rally 4 Our Rights, London
Voices for Europe and other groups have decided to take over from People’s Vote, as we are aware of many people coming over from other European countries who already had their hotels and tickets booked.
This event is additional to, but not in competition to the march on the 19th of October. It will be just a rally. Afterwards there also will be a sit-in for 24h.
VI) Sat 19th Oct - People's Vote March, London: We need to make sure that this is the biggest march yet, even bigger than the one last March which had more than one million of us. Register here:
We have organised three coaches for Sheffield, one from Meadowhall and two from the city centre: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/peoplesvotesouthwestyorkshire/293039?fbclid=IwAR0EvK4nNCH-rdjq-CZD7G2M6bahYehsjQkMsG8DqDPc2vRyify7pS6yfD4
Don't forget the current Yorkshire for Europe campaign:
