Calderdale Compass group launch

MVM's Klina Jordan will join a panel including Lisa Nandy MP and Compass's Frances Foley for the launch of the Calderdale Compass group, which believes that democratic reform will be an essential part of creating long term, progressive change!

100 years after some women won the right to vote, we are still a long way from equal representation in parliament, and the UK lags far behind other countries which have proportional voting systems. Our First Past the Post system was designed centuries ago, and we believe reforms to this system will play a crucial role in gaining equal representation for women and minority groups.

We invite you to Hebden Bridge to find out more about Compass, Make Votes Matter and democratic reform including Proportional Representation.

We’d like to invite people in and around Totnes to this Make Votes Matter meeting.

In GE2017 68% of votes had no impact on the result. First Past the Post continues to distort Parliament in a way that polarises politics and marginalises voters.

But in this Parliament we also have a once in a generation opportunity to change to Proportional Representation... if we get to work now! Klina Jordan from the national Make Votes Matter campaign will join the meeting and explain how you can help win real democracy in the UK.

The meeting will take place in the Methodist Church Hall in Totnes at 7.30 pm on Thursday 22nd March. People of all parties and none who want Proportional Representation will be very welcome. The aim will be to formulate ideas for our next actions, and to gather volunteers to carry these out. If you have any questions, please get in touch with Laurie Taylor via lauriedeepstream@gmail.com.
