About the event

Join us outside Parliament for this national demonstration and action summit to demand and plan the end of our rigged, undemocratic voting system.

Until everyone has a vote that counts, until seats match votes, and until governments represent the majority instead of a minority, the UK cannot be said to have real democracy.

Yet First Past the Post denies all of three of these things. In 2015, 74% of votes did not count; seats in parliament did not even vaguely reflect the votes; and a majority government was handed total power on 37% of the vote. We need Proportional Representation!

This gathering will be a major demonstration to demand fair votes - with high profile speakers from across the political spectrum. It will also be an action summit - bringing together people from across the UK to form a concrete plan to make 2017 the last General Election held under a broken system; to #SaveOurDemocracy.

Like all of our demonstrations, this will be a positive, family-friendly event. We want this to be the biggest rally for democracy the UK has seen since women won the vote - so please invite everyone you know!
