About this campaign
Why we are working together
While there is a clear majority in the Commons against the deal, there is currently no such majority for another referendum. We are joining forces with Hope Not Hate and Avaaz to launch a campaign that will change that, convincing MPs to back a final say with an option to remain. Hope Not Hate have a two decade long history of fighting fascism and far right violence in the UK. They understand the concerns of voters in many of the areas that voted to leave. Avaaz promotes activism on a range of progressive issues, and in the UK has a reach of millions. Best for Britain is the fastest growing anti-Brexit campaign, and has the sole mission of stopping Brexit by any democratic means
Best for Britain
Best for Britain is a committed group of campaigners, businesspeople, entrepreneurs and citizens from across our country who have come together with one single mission: to oppose and stop Brexit through a transparent democratic process. Our strategy depends on convincing people – and especially young people – to become actively engaged in the Brexit debate and to mobilise others. We are succeeding, because a growing majority of the country, having discovered what it means in practice, now want to see Brexit stopped. We are connecting people and campaigning organisations across the country to one another and to their MPs, so that their voices will be heard, telling politicians to let them decide.
HOPE not hate
Since it was founded in 2004, HOPE not hate has become one of the largest and most successful political action groups in the country. HOPE not hate was established to offer a more positive and engaged way of doing anti-fascism. We prioritised working in communities to town centre demonstrations; we engaged and spoke to local people rather than to ourselves; and we realised that the BNP was tapping into a wider mood of alienation and hardship and it was important to address issues of concern to voters.
Avaaz launched in 2007 with a simple democratic mission: organise citizens of all nations to close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want. Avaaz empowers millions of people from all walks of life to take action on pressing global, regional and national issues, from corruption and poverty to conflict and climate change. Our model of internet organising allows thousands of individual efforts, however small, to be rapidly combined into a powerful collective force.
Tech For UK
Tech For UK represents many of the most innovative businesses in the UK including Lastminute.com, ticketing startup Masabi, language learning giant Busuu, lending giant Zopa, and small business banking provider Tide, among many others. Our objective is to strengthen Best for Britain’s digital campaign to fight Brexit, find more supporters and create content and tech solutions to help win the right to a public vote and final say on the terms of Brexit, with the option to Remain.
