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.

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

    Euro Polling Day

    The result of these elections will be massively influenced by voter turnout. Many people are highly motivated to go and vote for parties that want the UK to leave the EU. We need remainers to get to the polling station on Thursday to vote, so come and help us with our day of action, taking place throughout the day, starting with an "I'm Voting" sticker campaign targetted at morning commuters.

    We will be meeting at various locations across the city so if you at all can, please come and join us before/after work or in your lunch break to remind people across the city to get out and vote.

    Morning/evening commuters at:

    • Clifton Down Station (7:30-9:30am, 4:30-6:30pm)
    • Princes St Bridge (7:31-9:31am, 4:31-6:31pm)

    Lunchtime students at:

    • Wills Memorial Building (12:00-2:00pm)
    • Clifton Triangle (12:01-2:01pm)

    Please RSVP below according to the times/locations above to indicate which time/location you could come to some/all of. Even if you can only do half an hour it could make all the difference.

    Theresa has a plan. No it’s not a cunning one. Let’s have a People’s Vote!

    There’s got to be a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal now, hasn’t there? After months of fighting between the cabinet’s hard and soft Brexiteers, on Friday 7th July Theresa May got them to sign up to an actual plan (all three pages of it!) setting out what Brexit should look like. The following Monday, David Davis and Boris Johnson tried to torpedo the whole thing by resigning, but that doesn’t seem to have worked. So now there is a template for Brexit that the government says it will turn into a white paper and use to start negotiating with the EU.
