Now, yes, after the Brexit win.
1. Encourage more people to join Global Justice Now. The latest post on the movement’s blog, by Alex Scrivener, has the title ‘It feels like the tragedy of a generation, but we need to gear up not give up‘. Global justice is more needed than ever.
2. There’s still parliamentary action. A petition appealing for a second-thoughts referendum was started before last week’s vote, actually by a Leave supporter who feared Remain might win. Since the referendum, it has attracted over 3 million signatures — not counting the 77,000 removed fakes. It’s also attracted some criticism, eg from human-rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson in the Guardian. He urges that we instead write to our MP, calling on them to vote against the repeal of the 1972 European Communities Act, a necessary stage in the Brexit process.
3-13. A blog post by Chris Gilson at is entitled ‘What’s next? Ten practical things that you can do post Brexit vote‘, and then goes on to list 11 (“In times like this, why not give a little more?”). They are: Join a political party, join a big national group campaigning for social justice as a volunteer, donate time/join a local group in your neighbourhood, donate stuff, don’t move away, buy British, get the hell out of this echo chamber, talk to those that you love about what’s going to happen in your future, speak up, keep holding those in power to account, don’t give up hope.
