Why Invoke Democracy Now!

On the 23rd of June 2016, the British people voted to leave the European Union. This was a massive vote of no confidence in the political establishment and the status quo. It was also a distinct signal that millions of people want the chance to create a better future for themselves and their communities.

The result of the referendum gave the UK government a clear mandate to leave the European Union. However, a number of influential groups and individuals are campaigning to overthrow the people’s vote. We have seen demands for a second referendum, legal challenges to the result and attempts to delay the triggering of Article 50. A large number of MPs remain hostile to Brexit.

Having asked for our vote, politicians cannot be allowed to ignore or rewrite their mandate. We must remind our politicians that they work for us. We must send a powerful message that failing to enact the referendum decision would be a betrayal of people’s trust – and of democracy itself.

Invoke Democracy Now! gives a voice to those who believe the referendum decision was final and should be acted upon without delay. In the EU Referendum leaflet sent to every household in the UK, it stated – “This is your decision. The government will implement what you decide.” We invite people from all political backgrounds – regardless of whether you voted leave or remain – to join with us to ensure our politicians stay true to their word, by carrying out what the people have decided.

We also believe this is a critical time to come together and discuss the future we want for ourselves, our country and our relationship with the wider world. We must not waste this rare and valuable opportunity to breathe new life into politics.

We’re campaigning to uphold the vote. Now is the time to unite to protect democracy and help set an exciting new direction for Britain. Join us!
