People's Question Time: Brexit - What are our demands?
We will be touring the country with a series of Question Time events around Brexit. This tour will be launched in London on Thursday 19 January. In increasing uncertainty about what Brexit will mean for us, we will be developing a series of key demands to put to the Government so that Brexit is negotiated in the interests of the majority and not the bankers and bosses.
If you're in London please come along, if not, you will be able to watch it live on our Facebook page. We will be announcing a series of new dates early in the new year. The People’s Question Time: Brexit – What Are Our Demands? 7pm, Thursday 19 January, St Pancras Church, Euston Road, NW1 2BA. Register your place
Panel includes: Emily Thornberry MP, Shadow Foreign Secretary, Amelia Womack, Deputy Leader, Green Party, Kevin Courtney, General Secretary, National Union of Teachers, Lindsey German, People's Assembly, Malia Bouattia, NUS President, Steve Turner, Assistant General Secretary, UNITE

We want to also give a special mention to an important election coming up in the UK's biggest trade union UNITE. Len McCluskey who has been UNITE's General Secretary since 2011 has triggered an early election which will take place in early 2017.
UNITE has been central to the anti-austerity movement and one of the founding members of the People's Assembly. Without the national support of UNITE it would have been impossible to build the broad coalition against austerity we have today. It's for this reason that the right wing media and establishment will throw their weight behind trying to undermine the work that Len and UNITE have done. They will do all they can to make sure the right take hold of one of the most influential trade unions we have.
If you are a member please make sure you vote. You can also become a member and vote as long as you join before 1 January. If you are unemployed, or unable to join a workplace union, UNITE have a special community membership. Details here
