Demo for Democracy

  • Westminster, London UK (map)

On Saturday 7th May we will be holding a Demo for Democracy in Old Palace Yard, across the road from the Houses of Parliament in Westminster. On the anniversary of the most disproportionate election in British history we will unite to call for all voters to be fairly represented in our Parliament and for the establishment of genuine democracy in the UK.

Non-facebook users can sign up here.

There will be speakers from across the political spectrum, live music, creative actions and lots of fun! Speakers include:

George Aylett, Young Labour National Committee
Natalie Bennett, Leader, Green Party
Baroness Sal Brinton, President, Liberal Democrats
Diane James MEP, UK Independence Party
Owen Jones, Commentator & Activist
Stewart McDonald MP, Scottish National Party
Cllr Marianne Overton MBE, Leader of the LGA Independent Group
Alex Runswick, Director, Unlock Democracy
John Strafford, Vice Chairman, Conservative Action for Electoral Reform
Owen Winter MYP, Spokesperson, Make Votes Matter

Phil Cooper will be performing his music live on stage, with a very relevant message, then an opportunity to dance for democracy!

Like our last demo in July 2015, this will be a family-friendly day to call for change in a manner fitting to the inclusive, cooperative political system we are going to build. 

This will be the first annual #MakeSeatsMatchVotes Day, which we will mark each year until we make every vote matter!

Save the date. Spread the word.
