If the #UniteforEurope march marked your first foray into anti- Brexit protest, you started off with a bang ! So what next ?
First thing to do is get any photos or videos out on your social media accounts, using #UniteforEurope where possible. Also #EU60, to mark the European Union’s 60th anniversary the same day. Make positive comments about the day, to attract people to read any pro -Eu comments you want to make, too. If your friends went along, like their photos, have a chat.
Make sure you send the photos in emails to your MP. To find him or her, all you need is your postcode Find an MP..any MP It shouldn’t matter whether photos are embedded in the email or sent as an attachment or zip file. DO remember to put first and last names plus address at the top plus full postal address and postcode, to prove that you are a constituent. You don’t need to be 18 and you don’t need to be British. You must live in the MPs constituency area. To track your MP join up to They Work For You
