Bristol for Europe is a cross-party, collaborative and pro-EU political pressure group working to keep Bristol and the UK at the heart of Europe and to stop Brexit.

We are one of over 40 similar organisations in the UK affiliated to Britain for Europe.

In the 2017 General Election we played an important part in defeating a pro-Brexit MP in Bristol North West constituency and in the election of a strongly pro-EU MP.

We have held rallies, speaker events and through our weekly street stalls have recruited many thousands of supporters in Bristol.

 

Our Mission

Bristol for Europe is a grassroots, cross party group operating within Bristol, dedicated to remaining in the European Union, as we as a city voted 62% to remain.  We are playing our part in stopping Brexit.

We believe:

  • That it is greatly in the UK’s political, economic and social interests to remain part of the most progressive and democratic regional intergovernmental organisation in history

  • That young people and future generations of British citizens should have the best possible prospects for their education and their careers as citizens of a free and united Europe

  • That British society will continue to prosper from the close interaction and exchange of goods, ideas and culture that we have with the rest of the EU member states

  • That the EU embodies the values that we recognise as British values, including democracy, justice, tolerance, collaboration, human rights and the rule of law

It was a crisp autumn day in Stokes Croft, and we were squashed into a narrow space in front of Hamilton House. Lots of people were keen to sign up.  I noticed a mature woman, hovering behind them, listening to conversations.  Her body language showed her irritation. She approached me with an accusatory tone:  “You are a Remainer!”  I said “yes”

    The incredible lies of the Brexit utopia

    From claiming there will be no chance that planes will be grounded after Brexit to boldly announcing that the Irish border is “not going to change” regardless of the deal that will emerge in the Spring of 2019, transport secretary Chris Grayling certainly makes some bold statements.
