Magid Magid MEP brings ‘READY for Remain’ tour to SheffieldPosted by: Ashley Birch
'Tour De Magid II' comes to Sheffield this Sunday
Former Lord Mayor of Sheffield and MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber Magid Magid has announced dates for his month-long Yorkshire-wide tour ‘READY for Remain’.
While Parliaments in Westminster and Brussels are in recess Magid is touring the region, taking in 14 cities and towns, ‘talking to and engaging with everyone from activists to everyday people.’
The tour comes to Sheffield this Sunday 18 August, meeting at the Peace Gardens at 10am, before heading on to Bramall Lane at 1pm and finishing at 5pm.
Speaking before a similar event in York last week, Magid said: "I truly hope this is the start of a shift, in Yorkshire and beyond. We need our people ready for remain - ready to do everything; whatever it takes and however it comes to pass, to beat the hard-right Brexiteers and keep the UK in the European Union.”
The tour was announced via Facebook, where Magid said: “While Parliaments in Westminster and in Brussels are in recess, I'm going to tour around beautiful, sunny Yorkshire - talking to and engaging with everyone from activists to everyday people. Come say hello!
“Despite the drama and uncertainty, we need to be energized and READY for Remain!
“I was proud to tour Yorkshire during the May elections on #TourDeMagid I - I've had a great time visiting Scarborough and York recently - and I'm excited to be popping by other cities and towns in the coming week. It's a time to recuperate together, and refocus on the turbulent weeks and months that lie ahead so that we can overcome adversity together.
“Johnson and Trump conspire to create a disaster Britain for the wealthy alone, and they'll sacrifice our great region and its ordinary working people for their own riches. Continued EU membership is crucial to our rights, freedom, prosperity and the struggle for equality.
“It's easy to tire, to give up and to lose hope - but all of Yorkshire - from Grimsby to Halifax, Sheffield to Skipton - and indeed our country needs our energy and belief like never before. What comes next? Who knows. Let's just get #ReadyForRemain!”
