Columnist, author, commentator and political activist, Owen Jones, will speak at the Demo for Democracy this weekend - joining a cross-party line-up calling for Proportional Representation by 2021.
George Aylett (Labour) - who stood for in the 2015 General Election in South West Wiltshire at nineteen years of age - will also speak on the one-year anniversary of the most disproportionate election in British history.
The Demo for Democracy will take place from midday, Saturday 7th May at Old Palace Yard, opposite Parliament, Westminster, London.
Owen Jones, author of “Chavs: the Demonisation of the Working Class” and left-leaning political activist, recently came out in favour of Proportional Representation on his Youtube channel.
George Aylett, who sits on the Young Labour National Committee, campaigns inside and outside the Labour Party for a fair voting system. Labour members can support his Your Britain motion here.
Owen and George will join speakers from across the political spectrum:
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 need to build.
This will be the first annual Make Votes Matter Day, which we will mark each year until we make every vote matter!
Save the date. Spread the word.
