Beyond Brexit: EU debate hots up with focus on people’s rights


Haringey TUC, the local wing of the TUC in North London, has said that the next week sees several local meetings which will discuss various aspects of the EU Referendum of interest to trade unionists.

On Thursday at 7pm at a meeting organised by Socialist Worker at the Kurdish Centre, Portland Gdns N4, speakers include People Before Profit Irish MP Brid Smith, who backs a left-wing exit from the EU and Axel a striking railway worker involved in the current French General Strike

On Monday June 13th at the Irish Centre,Pretoria Rd, N17 David Lammy MP will host a Labour Party meeting with Daniel Mulhall Irish Ambassador who will put the case for the impact on Ireland if Britain were to leave the EU

Haringey TUC Secretary Keith Flett said ,the discussion on the EU Referendum so far has been dominated by the political right. It’s good to see that two meetings in Haringey will look at the impact of remaining or leaving the EU on people’s rights and take in perspectives on that from elsewhere in Europe.
