Inauguration of Liverpool Branch of the European Movement
– 26th February 2015, 6.00pm
Rendell Building Lecture Theatre, Bedford Street South,
The inaugural Liverpool meeting will be chaired by Dr Alex Balch of the Department of Politics, University of Liverpool . The event is jointly promoted by the EM and the Europe and the World Centre, a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence.
Other speakers will be Theresa Griffin MEP for the Labour Party , Michael Welsh a Conservative North West MEP for three terms, Chris Davies who was until this year a Liberal Democrat MEP and Peter Cranie who stood for the Green Party in the Euro elections in 2014. The speakers will provide a background to the current state of the European Union and some thoughts as to its future and Britain’s role in it.
There will then be an opportunity for questions and discussion followed by, assuming general agreement, the setting up of a Steering Group to develop the embryo Liverpool branch over its first year. While many people have taken the EU for granted for the last three decades others have not and our very membership is now threatened by the prospects of a referendum.
The EM believes that it is in Britain’s best interest to remain within the EU while pressing for continued improvement and that those who share this belief should come together in large numbers to ensure that view prevails.
