Invitation to meet Roger Casale
British candidate for the UK June 8 vote
Wednesday 10th May at 6 pm at the Press Club Brussels Europe
Rue Froissart 95, near Rond-Point Schuman
He will explain his position as a creator of a new party (Yes2Europe) favorable to Remain with the EU. He is a very active human rights activist and a former Labour MP.
Roger Casale will be a candidate for the Vauxhall constituency in London against the sitting Labour MP Kate Hoey who fought a strong pro brexit battle. The interesting detail is that Vauxhall was very much behind the Remain campaign. 78% pro remain was the final result at the June 2016 referendum there.
So Mr Roger Casale decided to create this new party. He will explain to journalists his stance and ideas.
Please let me know if you can attend.
Thanks and hope to see you.
Maria Laura Franciosi
