The Ipswich Brexitometer Saturday 22nd September 2018
A big Thank You to all of our supporters who took up the challenge of supporting our event on The Ipswich Cornhill. Take a look at the Brexitometer - its results shows what the good folks of Ipswich think of Brexit. There were many informative discussions with passers-by together with some strange observations as to why they need to press ahead with Brexit. The vast majority however were positive - The picture is worth more than a thousand words.
Help us to stop the Brexit chaos. We encourage you to join us here on our website and to take an active role in assisting the Pro- EU cause. Click here to make a difference by adding your signature to the petition for a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal.
March for a People's Vote in London - Held on Saturday 23rd June 2018
Our contingent from The Suffolk EU Alliance travelled on the train from Lowestoft, Halesworth, Melton and Woodbridge to meet up with more SEUA supporters at Ipswich station. We then continued our train journey to London along with supporters from other group who boarded the train at the stations on the way.
We gathered at the Institute of Directors in Pall Mall and marched with the huge crowd of well over 100,000 pro EU supporters from Pall Mall to Parliament Square to demand a vote on the final Brexit deal. It was wonderful to be part of this noisy, joyful and friendly crowd of like minded people from all over the UK and beyond. We waved our flags and banners and joined in with the chanting and singing. In Parliament Square we were treated to rousing speeches by Gina Miller, Tony Robinson, Caroline Lucas ( Greens), David Lammy ( Labour ), Sir Vince Cable ( LIb Dems) and Anna Soubry ( Conservatives).
Following the great success of this March the organisers have announced that we will be marching to Westminster again on Saturday 20th October in a bigger and better march before the 'deal' returns to Parliament. The Brexit crisis will only get worse as businesses feel unable to invest in the future and our MPs continue to fight among themselves. So I encourage everyone to stand together and make sure our voices are heard by campaigning for the petition and marching again on Saturday 20th October. Please put this date in your diary now!

Be assured that you will soon be up to speed and it's for certain that we are glad to welcome you - however you might have voted on the day!
Over the next few pages you will learn just what it is that the Alliance is all about, how it works and importantly how it looks to educate and challenge, whilst supporting its members at all times.

The Alliance - Where did it come from?
The Suffolk EU Alliance is a cross-party initiative bringing together, in the first instance, residents and business from Suffolk and East Anglia in order to discuss all matters pertaining to the leaving or indeed remaining in the EU as the nation considers Brexit. It came about from the initial and ongoing membership of the Facebook page 'The 48%' with the local page being known as 'The 48%-Suffolk Coastal'.
As the vote was so tight, advisory and troublesome in
its pre amble, with statistics of:
then it seemed to be all the more challenging that the Government, who were essentially pro-Remain in their message, have since this announcement decided to 'full steam ahead' the UK's departure of the European Union, however low the majority and on our leaving don't wish to have an accommodating exit but are progressing towards a 'hard' exit.
Post the Brexit Referendum result millions of people were concerned, upset and shocked as to the fact that with only this small margin the Government chose to prepare for the UK's departure and it was at this stage many vocal, caring and concerned UK residents took up the challenge of discussing all matters EU. This included if, indeed, a U-turn might be made in order to stay in the EU.
It was at this point, only a few weeks post-referendum that the energy of Suffolk started to come together. The journey is long and now that the Article 50 notice has been triggered, the nation is in full swing at working out a plan to leave. But on what terms?
Through our page at 48% Suffolk Coastal and the Alliance - we have developed a method of the bringing together of remain voters and non-remain voters - the young and EU immigrants with no right to vote, not to mention businesses and educational institutions who are all concerned about all matters BREXIT.
