Great Gathering for Voting Reform!

It’s been an amazing couple of months. To quote Owen Winters who started the Change.org Voting Reform Petition

 
When my petition for proportional representation started, I never expected such a great response. And with our new friends from the other petitions, we have been building a broad coalition for voting reform. Nearly 500,000 people have signed up already to demand a vote that counts.

We join a long line of democratic movements going back over a century who have fought for the right to vote - and to a vote that counts. 

With thousands signed up to volunteer with us, we are ready to take further action. We start with a huge event to celebrate our cause, and begin to build pressure for change.

So, we would like to invite you to join us for a Great Gathering on Saturday 25th July outside Parliament in London. There will be several activities you can help take part in, as well as speakers, and actions you can continue in your own towns and communities. 

Come along and demand a vote that counts!

Please SHARE this event and invite your friends so we can secure as big a turn out as possible.

 

Speakers include:

Jonathan Arnott MEP (North East England, UKIP)

George Aylett (2015 Parliamentary candidate, Labour Party)

Sian Berry (Prospective London Mayoral candidate, Green Party)

Tom Brake MP (Carshalton and Wallington, Liberal Democrats)
