No2EU - Yes to Democracy

The No2EU-Yes to Democracy electoral coalition, headed by Bob Crow, the general secretary of the RMT transport workers' union, will be contesting seats in June's European elections.

The coalition will campaign against the EU-led privatisation of our public services, for workers' rights, and in opposition to the EU constitution (now repackaged as the Lisbon Treaty), which puts into EU law the failed doctrines of free market economics.

The immediate task facing the coalition in the next couple of weeks is to raise the funds necessary to enable it to stand as widely as possible across Britain. The RMT is financially backing the campaign but its national political fund is limited. So while many other national trade unions continue to use their political funds to finance New Labour, No2EU-Yes to Democracy will have to rely on the support of individual trade unionists.
