We are campaigning for the UK to be a part of positive change in the EU- for a more transparent and democratically accountable Europe, for a Europe that is right for all of us. We have been calling for a referendum on Britain's EU membership since 2012, because we want people to have their say - and we will be campaigning to show that the UK is a vital part of the EU.
