Devizes for Europe (formerly Devizes for EU) got together in March 2018 to campaign to maintain the UK’s membership of the EU. For those whose lives have been turned upside down by Brexit, Devizes for Europe has been a lifeline. We fought long and hard for a People’s Vote as a non-party political constituency group but as we all know we lost the battle.
We would of course eventually like to re-join the EU. But that signifies a long journey. We value the European Union’s commitment to human rights, the free movement of people, social policy, workers’ well being and its many shared political, historical, scientific and cultural institutions. So we initiated the alliance of pro European groups in Wiltshire, to strengthen each other’s mutual campaigns to safeguard the benefits brought by the EU in the UK.
OUR VISION FOR THE NEXT 12 MONTHS
WHO ARE WE? We are network of Wiltshire people upholding European Values, we have a universal and internationalist outlook, and this website is our home, our platform whilst living outside the artificially created boundary to satisfy narrow interests. We want to build on the following vision over the next year:
“We want the UK to have strong and enduring links with our neighbours in Europe, maximising opportunity and continuously improving the quality of life for all.”
