Leeds campaigners hold public meeting against Brexit

Have your say

Campaigners against Brexit will host a public meeting in Leeds this weekend with a line-up of expert speakers.

Leeds for Europe - who are campaigning for Britain to remain in the European Union - will host ‘Brexit - What Next’ in the Council Chamber of Leeds Civic Hall on Saturday, March 18 at 2pm.

The meeting will discuss the likely implications of a UK exit from the EU and what they say needs to be done to avert a ‘hard Brexit’.

Speakers will include Richard Corbett MEP and Professor Michael Dougan, an expert on European Union Law from the University of Liverpool.

The speakers will each talk for approximately 40 minutes followed by a question and answer session with members of the public.

Leeds for Europe was founded in October 2016 as a Facebook group but now meets regularly in Leeds and campaigns against Brexit in the city centre every Saturday. The group is affiliated to Britain for Europe and is in the process of affiliating to the European Movement.
