NRMII: March Follow-up

National Rejoin March II: 
  • Dorset for Europe attended the march in London September 23rd, travelling by coach, car and train.
  • Thank you to all supporters who made it on the day, which was held to be a success by those attending: read about it here. 
  • We're still processing the offers of help through questionnaires completed on the coach - please bear with us. 
  • Reports of the number attending varied across platforms: the Met Police said there were "well in excess of" 20,000 and some commentators thought there were nearer to 40,000. 
  • UK mainstream media generally ignored the event, although the march was widely covered by overseas news outlets and programmes.
  • Complaints about the lack of BBC coverage featured in their 'Newswatch' programme.
  • You can watch the speeches from the day here, or by subscribing to the NRM YouTube channel.
More coverage soon
  • The NMR Committee are continuing to process material from the event - and you can join in!
  • 'NRM Speaks' is a series of short, portrait videos that they will be putting out shortly, aiming to have something each day on different social media platforms, like Twitter, Tik Tok, YouTube etc.  
  • If you want to take part by sending in a short video or just to find out more about the new initiative, check here.

Local Events

We were at the Liberal Democrat conference!
  • Dorset for Europe was stationed outside the Bournemouth International Conference Centre, to provide conference-goers with stickers and hand-held EU flags.
  • These were warmly welcomed by the majority of those heading in to listen to speeches. We were told that any mention of the European Union gained a huge cheer!
Boscombe Beach Clean 
  • Sporting 'Dorset for Europe' high-viz vests and working in conjunction with the Marine Conservation Society (MCS), a hardy group of litter-pickers cleared and surveyed a patch of Boscombe beach on 10th September.
  • A record was made of the kinds of litter collected and passed (with the litter in two sacks!) to BCP Council and MCS. Read more details on our website, here.
  • We plan to make this an annual event, so watch this space if you'd like to join us next time!

Best For Britain

  • Now, they use that expertise with a view to 'fixing the problems Britain faces after Brexit'. 
  • They have expanded their scope to encompass, e.g., trade and the environment, better democracy, affordable food. Read about some of their work here
