DiEM25 voted to support The Labour Party – now it's time to show our support

by DiEM25 United Kingdom

The United Kingdom general election is the most significant of our lifetime. 

On December 12, UK voters can either choose a socialist, green Labour government led by Jeremy Corbyn and (DiEM25 Advisory Panel member) John McDonnell, or they can subscribe to a Brexit that plays into Trump’s hands, austerity and further privatisation under Boris Johnson’s Conservatives. 

DiEM25 members, after careful deliberation, have overwhelmingly agreed that a Labour-led government and a defeat of the Tories is the only way of taking a ‘Hard Brexit’ off the table, ending austerity and implementing the Green New Deal in the UK. Read DiEM25’s position in full here.

Our plan for this election involves you

The results are very much on the edge and members of DiEM25 can play an important role in determining the outcome of the UK election on December 12!

DiEM25 members voted to campaign in favour of the Labour party or, in constituencies where the GreensSNP or Plaid Cymru have greater chances of defeating the Tories, to campaign also for those parties.

Wherever you live in the UK, in Europe or in the world, you can help deliver a progressive government in Britain.

How to help – two ways:

  1. Record a short video to show that DiEM25 members support the Labour Party

    Campaigners in the UK are making #videosbythemany – short selfie videos to show their solidarity with Labour.  DiEM25 has a unique perspective – our members often live outside their home country, and many are EU citizens in the UK, or UK citizens in the EU, for whom this ‘Brexit’ election is crucial, and UK democracy is at stake. 

    Make your own short video (approximately 10 seconds) expressing what makes you, a member of DiEM25, want to support a UK Labour government! 

    Don’t forget to say where you live and take the video in front of some landmarks of your town e.g. “I am X – I live in X,Y – I stand with the Labour Party of Jeremy Corbyn – because XYZ”

    Share on Twitter/Facebook and tag:

  2. Join Labour Campaign Efforts! Make your ‘Plan to Win’!  
    Whether you live in the UK or not, there are many simple actions you can take to help convince UK voters to choose Labour.

Visit ‘My Plan to Win‘ to create your own plan of how you can help Labour in the next days:

Share your ‘Plan to Win’ with friends in the UK, encouraging them to make theirs and commit to few small actions before December 12. If you live in the UK, the best thing you can do is talk to voters.

A win for Labour is a win for Europe.  Let’s get to work!

Carpe DiEM!
