Following a three day suspension prompted by the killing of a pro-EU MP, representatives of both sides of the argument are once again fighting to get their message across.
David Cameron vowed to seek further reforms from Brussels as he faced sustained attack from a live BBC audience over his renegotiation, which was compared to Neville Chamberlain's Nazi appeasement.

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron made an impassioned call for voters to choose to stay in the European Union when campaigning resumed on Sunday. He said 'Brexit would force us and similar companies to rethink, because we still have a European vision, and would be disadvantaged in pursuing it from the United Kingdom'.
"He didn't quit. He didn't quit on Europe".
The debate for Britain's future with the 28-member economic bloc enters its final stages this week with just three days to go before the crucial referendum. You can't win, you can't fight, if you are not in the room. "You can't win a football match of you're not on the pitch".
The Prime Minister also came under pressure over the Government's failure to bring down the immigration numbers with one woman warning public services would be "flooded" if Britain remained in the European single market.
An exasperated Mr Cameron admitted: "There is no silver bullet on this issue".
"Let me just say again, for people sitting at home: I don't want anyone to vote in this referendum on the basis of Turkey joining [the EU] because its not going to happen".
He said arguments made by Leave about Turkey soon joining the bloc, a future European army and that the United Kingdom sends £350 million a week to the EU were "simply not true" and voters would be "crazy" to heed them.
Vote Leave chief executive Matthew Elliott said Mr Cameron "repeatedly refused" to say he would veto Turkish EU membership and noted that in 2010, the prime minister had said he was "angry" that the country's progress towards EU membership had been frustrated and would be the "strongest possible advocate" for Turkey joining the EU. They're not coming to Britain.
He said it was "wrong in fact because it's a picture of people from the European continent in Syria and elsewhere. But also wrong in motivation as it's created to scare people".
