Another Europe is Possible is an alliance of progressives fighting for an alternative to extreme conservative Brexit, first established to campaign for a radical ‘in’ vote in the EU referendum on 23rd June 2016. We said ‘stay in Europe to change Europe’. We come from across the spectrum of the progressive left, working across party political lines to campaign for democracy, human rights, and social justice.
After Brexit, we particularly defend the six progressive elements of EU membership. We identify those as workers’ rights, environmental sustainability, the free movement of people, human rights, science and research funding and transnational innovation.
We are also fighting for democracy in the Brexit process. That means transparency in the negotiations, and ensuring that corporate interests do not run riot and take over. We are also arguing for a referendum on the terms of exit once they have been negotiated with Europe with an option to remain in the EU if the terms are rejected. We respect the referendum result, but there is no popular mandate for any particular exit.
