Your support for the Movement for Active Democracy is vital. This party is in its infancy and without the continued groundswell of interest and energy it receives from those who discover it, it can never be more than a brilliant concept.
Be one of the 108!
The best way you can help is to STAND. OK – it costs a bit (£500 deposit and £500 other outgoings) but it is fun and gives you the opportunity of being on the stage putting forward this concept of a true democracy to the people in your community. If we can find just 108 candidates (one in every 6 constituencies covered) the party would qualify for a party election broadcast on all terrestrial channels to get this message across to the people – and when this happens things will really start moving.
Next best is to CONTACT US either through the contact form so we can update you and put your on the mailing lists.
Other things you could do is spread the word through your friends and contacts and to participate in organising events for Movement for Active Democracy speakers to attend (free of charge of course!)
