The One Thing About Brexit Campaign
Britain elected to Leave the EU after the EU Referendum on 23 June 2016, even though the majority here voted to Remain.
This decision, which everybody’s calling Brexit, will have a big impact on our society as we know it, now and well into the future.
Brexit will have its biggest impact on young people. Yet the majority of young people were not eligible to vote and had no say in the Referendum. And of the young people who were eligible to vote, 75% voted to Remain in the EU.
Brexit negotiations started on 19 June 2017. Negotiations must reach an end and a Withdrawal Agreement approved by March 29 2019, according to EU rules for Leaving the EU.
So far in the negotiations, the voices of young people have hardly been considered. There’s a risk that your concerns and issues may not be reflected in the final Withdrawal Agreement.
This is a major oversight and it’s not good enough.
Do something about it by taking part in the One Thing campaign.
