THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED Freedom of Movement: the Key to Rejoin – A toolkit for pro-EU campaigners THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED

08/11/2023 @ 19:00 - 20:30 GMT



Freedom of movement of people (along with free movement of goods, services, and capital), is a fundamental principle of the EU Single Market. There can be no return to the Single Market or the EU without FoM. 

Opposition to FoM is based on a mistaken belief that FoM means uncontrolled immigration. The public is not well informed on this issue, a factor which greatly assisted the leave campaign. People are now becoming more aware that ending FoM affects their own and their families’ choices, as well as undermining the UK economy, impacting the workforce in key industries, impeding business travel and decimating the arts. FoM is strongly supported by the public in all EU member states.

The aim of this webinar is to equip pro-EU activists for a campaign to restore FoM, and so open the door to Single Market and EU membership. 

The webinar will provide the basis for a crib sheet for FoM campaigners.
