Stall - University of Sussex

  • University of Sussex

Come and talk to us in Library square about how you can best use your vote to keep as many tories out as possible. As a student this might mean voting at home either by proxy or post. 
There are lots of seats up and down the country where the combined Green, Labour and Lib Dem vote is greater than that of the Tories, by voting together at this election we can stop a Tory landslide and build a movement for a progressive future.

Unite Don't Fight! Rally

  • The Level (Park)

Brighton is an open-minded, tolerant and progressive city. We want our elected politicians to represent that after this election! If the progressive parties who share our values don’t work together we risk being overwhelmed by a sea of blue.
 
If you think the progressive parties in Brighton and Hove should fight the real enemy of Theresa May’s reckless, ideologically driven, hard-Brexit, tax-haven Tory party – TOGETHER, then come to our rally, Saturday morning on the Level.
 
If you think candidates should not split the vote by fighting unwinnable seats then come and add your name to our petition on Saturday morning which we will deliver to the Labour Party, the Greens and the Lib Dems locally.

Homemade banners very welcome!
