Hold on a referendum on an Independent North of England
We believe that the UK Parliament must hold a referendum on an Independent Northern England.
All those North of the Humber and South of Scotland have a fundamental right to autonomy from Westminster and Self-Rule.
A 'yes' vote will lead to the establishment of The Northern Republic.
We believe that The North is an economically, culturally and historically distinct nation.
Northerners are not 'English' – they are Northumbrian.
For much of this island's history, Northumbria was a historically independent nation with a unique system of government and set of traditions.
COVID-19 has revealed that the North-South divide is built into the very fabric of the "United Kingdom." And there is only one solution: a North-South border.
We demand freedom for the North
