On Saturday 24 February the Brexit Is it worth it? Bus took in Edinburgh and Glasgow on its UK-wide tour, gaining fantastic support and media coverage. Joanna Cherry QC MP, Cllr Cammy Day, Labour Leader, Edinburgh Council, and Juuso Järviniemi, President of Young European Movement UK spoke at the event in Edinburgh. David Martin MEP, Patrick Harvie MSP and Juuso Järviniemi spoke in Glasgow.
Vanessa Glynn, chair of the European Movement in Scotland, said: “Together with the Young European Movement, we are delighted to host the bus in Scotland. Our country stands to lose significantly more than other parts of the UK and Brexit will cause misery to so many Scots – both those whose families have been here for generations and those who have recently decide to make Scotland their home and have already contributed so much to our economy and culture.”
The Is it worth it? campaign was launched as an online crowdfunding appeal in December 2017, initiated by local non-party grassroots group Camden for Europe. Painted on the bus: that Brexit is costing Britain £50 billion and more. Read more about the bus tour: https://www.isitworthit.org.uk/
The campaign goes on, so please support it if you can. Funds will be used for leafleting and a Facebook ad campaign.
