Remaking Democracy Alliance takes off

A number of organisations and campaigners have come together to form the Remaking Democracy Alliance that will, as the name suggests, work for a remaking of the institutions of the state and the redistribution of power of at national and local level to create a new democratic governing framework that reflects the sovereignty of the people. RMA founding members include Assemblies for Democracy, Unlock Democracy, the Sortition Foundation, Involve, Compass, Make Votes Matter, Republic, Left Unity, Graham Allen, former chair of the Commons select committee on the constitution, Graham Smith from the Centre for the Study of Democracy and Independent Constitutionalists. At present, the RMA is working on a funding bid for a series of events around the UK in 2019 that will, as one of the aims, build grassroots support for a citizens’ convention on the constitution.
