Sunday 24th November Trafalgar Square noon
London demo 8th November
In support of the Gibraltar Women's Association vigil outside the
Convent on the 8th November, the Gibraltar Action Group held a vigil
outside Downing Street on the same day in support of the Gibraltar
Referendum result. We want the British government to recognise our
second act of self-determination as valid and legally binding. Remember-
if it's "eccentric" then it must be more British, not less democratic!
Watch this space for details- or sign up to our mailing
list. See pictures.
Where's Your Flag?
Fly a Gibraltar flag in support of Gibraltar. If you don't have one-
buy it from here! Then take
a photo and send me a picture, which I'll post on this website.
Anywhere in the world will do!

Declaration of Unity
In the light of recent events, with the UK having further given way
on our EU rights, please send our Declaration
of Unity to your MP/MEP and Minister for Europe. His e-mail is:
You can also write to your MP, MEP or government representative to
lobby on the following:
- Rejection of the Matutes Proposals
(rejected in a petition containing the signatures of 88% of the
electorate) by the UK government. (2001: HMG has now promised
to do this- and broke their promise!)
- Giving Gibraltar the Eurovote in time for the 2004 elections.
Legislation MUST be enacted in this autumn's (2002) Queen's
Speech in order to be ready in time!(UK/EU)
- Terminating the Brussels Process,
unless Gibraltar has its own voice (UK/EU)
- Initiating sanctions, either by the UK, or with EU and NATO backup,
against Spain until she removes her restrictions
against Gibraltar. (These restrictions affect all EU citizens and
Points to mention: (please put in your own words) that the European
Court of Human Rights ruled that we had the right to a Eurovote, and
that the UK is obliged to put this into effect in time for the EU
elections in 2004, that the Spanish government
spends much time and energy falsely maligning Gibraltar's good
name, and EU representation would be a way of redressing that balance.
