The European Movement
Encouraging local communities in Britain to play a leading role in a strong, democratic and reformed Europe. The International European Movement was inspired by Winston Churchill’s Zurich speech in 1948, when he urged the recreation of the European family following the end of the Second World War. The movement has no political party affiliation. November 2007 saw a refreshed movement re-launched in the Houses of Parliament.
