Who we are
Republicans are people like you who simply want what's best for Britain. Our campaign is supported by ordinary hard working people from all corners of the country and from all walks of life. We are united in a belief in responsibility, aspiration and, above all, democracy. Republic's diverse membership represents the full social and political spectrum. We are bound together by a few simple principles and a single ambition: a republican constitution, the right to a democratic head of state and an end to the monarchy. Together we spearhead the republican movement as a broad alliance. As republicans we often differ in our views about what sort of republic we want. Our motivations for supporting the abolition of the monarchy are also diverse. As democrats we value these differences and draw on them to build a stronger movement. Republic has an ambitious yet achievable goal - and for this reason we set our sights high in what we do. We firmly believe we are the one campaign group focussed on the key flaw in British democracy. Whilst we salute fellow campaigners who rightly tackle many of the pressing issues of the day, republicans seek to fix the source of these problems: the underlying lack of democracy that results from an unwritten constitution at the heart of which is the institution of the monarchy and the Crown. We are fully aware of the obstacles that face us and this is why we strive to adapt to the latest campaigning techniques and continually seek to raise our game. Republic has been steadily growing in strength and size in recent years. We continue to welcome new eminent and high profile supporters and work with like-minded organisations both in the UK and internationally. We welcome support from anyone who shares our aims and aspirations for Britain.
