Why we campaign against the EU
In 50 years' time, if EU leaders have their way, our children will live in a province of a country called the United States of Europe. The planned EU treaty is simply a disguised version of the rejected EU Constitution, and will take us a long way towards this goal.
Great Britain, proudly independent for over 1000 years, a nation which has given so much to the world, will no longer exist as an independent state. EU leaders make no secret of this plan - they are proud of their progress towards "ever closer union". Only in Britain do our politicians pretend that there is no such intention.
Worse still, the United States of Europe will not be a democracy. It will be run by the EU political elite and the EU bureaucrats. Both groups have always shown a contempt for democracy. Whatever we think of them, we will not be able to vote them out, as we can vote out a British Government. Being able to dismiss a Government is the essence of democracy.
It is because we care passionately about the future of our country, and our children, that we give our time, effort and money to campaigning against the ambitions of the EU.
EU citizens have not voted for the EU project. Most people know perilously little about it. This website provides facts and figures about the EU, and the harm it does to us and the whole of Europe. Please read them, check the facts for yourself if you want, and decide whether you want to help us.
The Democracy Movement
The Democracy Movement is a grass roots pressure group, with 300,000 registered supporters nationwide. We are not a political party - we do not put up candidates for election. We welcome supporters from all shades of democratic political opinion. A network of nearly 100 local branches across the country is helping to mobilise public opinion against giving more and more power to the developing European superstate.
These campaigns can have an influence. We have been part of two successful campaigns - to Keep the Pound, and to prevent the Government from adopting the planned EU Constitution without a Referendum (last time they tried it). We continue to campaign against the EU's drive for more and more power (see our News of the European Union).

The views expressed on our website are those of the branch, and do not necessarily reflect those of the Democracy Movement itself.
