“No2EU-Yes to Democracy aims to stand candidates as widely as possible across Britain, but we urgently need financial resources to allow us to do so. RMT is helping to fund the campaign, but a trade union’s political fund is limited.
While New Labour and the Tories receive funding from corporate fat cats, No2EU-Yes to Democracy will have to rely on support from individual trade unionists. That is why I am appealing to all those who want the voice of working people to be heard above the deafening consensus of the main political parties, to give generously and collect donations from your work colleagues, friends and neighbours to allow us to field candidates and get our voice across loudly and clearly.
Please make cheques payable to ‘No2EU-Yes to Democracy’ and send to Unity House, 39 Chalton Street, London NW1 1JD, along with your name and address”.
