Hi everyone
We’d love to be wishing you a happy new year under more hopeful circumstances, but we know for lots of people it’s been a difficult time. The pandemic has caused so much pain, with more challenging months still to come. And today the UK finally, properly, turns its back on the most successful project for peace and prosperity of our lifetimes.
We know nothing we’ve done can undo those things, but as we leave 2020 we thought you may like to be reminded of some of the interventions your extremely generous donations have made possible this year.
When Britain formally left the EU on January 31st we set out to do something to challenge the triumphalism of Farage and his friends and make a stand for decency – one that would give a different impression to the world than images of the Brexit Party’s flag-waving plastic patriots. So we interviewed two heroic veterans of World War Two – men who had risked their lives for their country – asking them to address a message to Europe. When we projected their testimony onto the White Cliffs of Dover their words of deep and profound regret at the UK’s departure from the EU spoke for so many of us. The film was watched six million times online and ran on news programmes across the world (in France the main evening news ran it in full that evening).
