Sign the open letter calling for unity around the 'Brexit Crisis'.
"The EU referendum campaign and its aftermath are widely recognised as one of the most divisive political events in British post war history.
Irresponsibly initiated by David Cameron for the narrowest reasons of internal party advantage the campaign was dominated on both sides by the voices of the right.
The campaign also divided progressives. But those differences now need to be set aside if we are to prevent Theresa May, Cameron's unelected successor, from turning the post-Bexit negotiations into an undemocratic ramp for further attacks on the NHS, the welfare state, rights at work, and migrants.
All those on the left, no matter which way they voted in the EU referendum, are united in wanting to defend the NHS, counter racism directed at refugees and migrants, extend the rights of trade unionists, defend civil liberties, and end the poverty and inequality created by a generation of neo-liberal economics.
All those who wish to resolve the current political crisis to the benefit of working people should unite around this clear set of principles. Whatever the outcome of the Brexit negotiations they must be assessed on whether or not they close the gap between the rich and the poor, strengthen public services, extend democratic and civil liberties, including trade union rights, and combat racism.
The political right created this mess. The political left must unite to get us out of it."
