The #DeniedMyVote legal challenge is a very effective way to hold the government to account. The right to vote is a basic human right.

Understandably, a lot of people are focused on our glorious leader and his bargain basement Voldemort advisor, at the moment. The anger is palpable and growing. Every tweet supporting the government is another slap in the face.
Being told to “move on” is fuel on the flames.
We shouldn’t move on. That would be insulting the memory of every person who has died and adding to the pain of their loved ones and friends. We must hold the government to account on this. We must hold them to account on everything they do wrong.
There is so much to be angry about right now and it can feel as if we are completely powerless. But we aren’t.
The #DeniedMyVote legal challenge is a very effective way to hold the government to account. Do you remember how angry we were when the story broke that thousands of EU27 citizens were being turned away from polling stations? Please read this:
When I first lived abroad, in Germany, I chose not to vote in UK elections. I felt it was undemocratic as I wouldn’t live with the consequences. The 2016 Referendum proved how wrong I was to think so.
For me, the right to vote is a basic human right.
Disenfranchisement is never a good look and I believe it shouldn’t be lawful. What happened on 23 May 2019 is a shameful mark on democracy. People eligible to vote were turned away. Names had been crossed off lists. Some were even told to vote in their “own countries”.
If you have never experienced disenfranchisement, please watch this to get some idea of how it feels. the3million need another £25,000 to take the government to court. Are we really going to do what Johnson and Cummings want and move on?
After all the mistreatment of EU27 citizens by our government, please let’s not let them down. Only a small proportion of the 3.7 million EU citizens are on social media, hence the government’s ads about Settled Status. Now is the time to stand with them and show solidarity.
Together we can prevent the government from getting away with this. Together we are a force to be reckoned with.
Please, stand together with every person who was denied their vote.🔷
