Hey Theresa May – we love EU!
February 9th was another People’s Vote Action Day. EMiS activists set up a stall in Princes Street, Edinburgh for a couple of hours in the morning and invited members of the public to send Valentines messages to Prime Minister, Theresa May, telling her why they love the EU. These messages were stuck onto a large heart and had to be protected from the wind and rain!
Many people wrote that they love the EU because of the benefits that Freedom of Movement has brought to themselves and their families. Young people love the opportunities that participating in the Erasmus programme can bring, while others mentioned their love of the peace, prosperity and democratic rights that the EU has given us over the past 40 years.
People also signed postcards to Theresa May MP and Labour Party Leader, Jeremy Corbyn MP, urging them to support a People’s Vote.
