I used to attend with groups from Stratford4Europe, WarwickDistrict4Europe and Banbury4Europe, each time I and the others would drag more along.
I felt I had no voice politically and was totally unrepresented. Getting into political activism and protesting regularly outside Parliament is the only thing I can thank my ex-MP, Baroness Hoey for.
It was having Steve and the group from SODEM there day after day as they were the country’s Remain beacon who we deeply respected and coalesced around.
It was meant to be like a “tick in a box”, as I was told about SODEM, and I wanted to see what it was like… needless to say, it soon became a good addiction, and changed my life.
My favourite memory is being able to meet so many like-minded people from all over the country and from abroad. I loved talking to passing tourists (usually Americans) who wanted to understand the politics.
I couldn't vote in the referendum and I felt very wronged, because after 26 years living and working in the UK, I loved this country as if it was mine.
Singing, dancing, shouting, holding flags and banners, and being with my friends felt like being part of the SODEM family — every time.
We joined the N°10 Vigil as performers, writing and performing satirical versions of popular songs, all over the UK and Westminster in particular...
I believe that Britain is Great in Europe - indeed I know it, having led or represented UK contributions to European initiatives.
I got involved in the anti-Brexit movement through Vote for Europe when I saw the first 'flags at the Proms' action. That was when I realised that others were taking actions to reject Brexit.
