Open Britain’s Day of Action in Sevenoaks on 11th March 2017
On Saturday 11 March 2017, members of the group Sevenoaks & Swanley Together in Europe (SSTIE) took to the streets of Sevenoaks as part of Open Britain’s National Day of Action. They handed out leaflets encouraging people to write to their MP about getting the best possible Brexit outcome for Britain.
The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the group signed up a couple of new members for Open Britain. Photos were tweeted by SSTIE secretary Heather Styles, who also prepared a press release for the local papers.
“We had a successful day on Saturday” said SSTIE Coordinator, Peter Kinsler, “I was very interested to find a number of young people really concerned by the outcome of the referendum and where it is all going. It seems clear to me that we need to target seriously places which young adults frequent to give them the chance to sign up and be involved in what could be a political process covering a number of years. They are the ones who are going to be affected by Brexit and we need to get them on board as fast as possible.”
