The Yes! People’s Campaign launch event was held on the weekend with talks from Eddie Izzard, Greg Dyke and Martin Bell (amongst others). This was a great chance to see how people from many different backgrounds are taking part in the campaign. But it isn’t just celebrities, it isn’t just politicians, the main campaign is being fronted by grassroots activists. And these are the people who went out and were dropping the banners and handing out leaflets across the capital (and indeed the country) on Saturday! You can watch a video from the campaign launch here.
