Take a Break from Brexit joins Citizens Take Over Europe Coalition.
The general assembly of the Take a Break from Brexit campaign has unanimously agreed to join the Citizens Take Over Europe coalition. The campaign pledged in 2018 to defend the political rights of the European citizens affected by Brexit, allowing them to have a say in the future of the EU and of the UK during and post Brexit.
Citizens Take Over Europe emerged in the spring 2020 amidst the recent Covid-19 pandemia, in the recognition of how much the lack of European democracy is deeply affecting our lives. We are a group of civil society organizations, citizens and residents from across Europe, joined in a common effort to promote a forward-looking and citizens-centered European democracy. While our national leaders struggle to find common solutions for the major challenges of our time, from ensuring strong, well-funded and inclusive public services to protecting our planet or guaranteeing fundamental rights across Europe, we take our own responsibility to put citizens and residents at the centre of the conversation about the future of Europe. Not only that: we believe it is fundamental for people in Europe to organize across borders and design the Europe that we want: a Europe that cares and is taken care of.
