A democratic society is within our imagination, but we won’t get it unless we demand it.
“We demand a democratic society, where power is exercised by and closest to the people, and where those who exercise power are accountable to the people.
We demand a citizens’ convention, that will bring together the people of the UK to decide together what kind of society we want now, and what political system we need to respond to the existential threats that we must face collectively.
We demand a new constitution that is built and owned by the people, which safeguards our democracy from the overreach of powerful governments.
We will work together to build a new democratic settlement.”
