A poster campaign by anti-Brexit activists got under way in earnest this week, with billboards appearing throughout the country urging the public to speak out over the Government’s hard Brexit policy.
The campaign group Stop the Silence raised more than £70,000 via crowdfunding to pay for the posters, which have been erected in areas such as London, Bournemouth and Cardiff over the past few days.
Writing on Facebook, the group said: “This campaign encourages peers to listen to the people as it considers safeguards to guarantee that the final deal will be in the best interests of the people.
“The campaign and group aim to influence the character and quality of debate in Parliament over the next two years, in a way which fully engages and involves the views of the entire electorate, much of which has diverse expectations of the Brexit process.
“The campaign intends to emphasise the foundational British values of open debate and tolerance, where ongoing democratic dialogue must remain accessible, and available, to all of its citizens.
