As fears grow of a possible Brexit, with the dramatic consequences this would have not just for the UK but Europe as a a whole, new grassroots groups and movements are mobilising to campaign not just for Britain to remain in the EU but for a new kind of Europe, the Europe we need.
On 28th May, DiEM25 , the movement founded by former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, is organising a huge IN rally in London under the banner, “Vote In: Another Europe Is Possible” .
This will be a participatory event with few speeches and many opportunities to talk to the presenters and talk to other participants in brainstorming sessions.
On the same day, meet ups are also being organised by DIEM across the UK and Europe to discuss s of the referendum and the UK's role in the EU.
The organisers are still looking for hosts in the UK – to register your interest in hosting a local DiEM meeting this Saturday 28th May to watch the livestream and discuss next steps: http://goo.gl/forms/0DjT0v3CPKRxuqOo2
