Brits Marching Against Brexit
Huge crowds gathered in London over the weekend as anti-Brexit campaigners demand a second referendum. The People’s March attracting over 500,000 Brits who marched from Park Lane at midday and ended the movement with a rally at Parliament Square.
This was not the only demonstration over the weekend in the UK with Manchester also seeing over 100,000 activists taking part. It is widely expected that once the official figures are released that it will be the biggest public protest against Brexit to date.
There has also been public backing from an array of celebrities including celebrity chef Delia Smith and Deborah Meaden from Dragon’s Den. It was also supported by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, who said: “I can’t think of anything more democratic or British than trusting the British people. Some of the promises made two years ago have not materialized. Nobody was talking about a bad deal, or no deal whatsoever.”
The demonstrations were also a part of the ‘#WriteThisWrong’ campaign, in which over 100,000 postcards will be distributed with the words: “Brexit has already become a dog’s dinner- the whole process is going badly wrong. And it is only going to get worse.”
British national newspaper, The Daily Mirror spoke to two of the students that have fronted the march, Emily Longman who is 20 years old, is irritated by the fact that she was four months too young to vote when the Brexit vote took place. She said: “We are both Spanish students due to study abroad next year, but no one knows what will happen with the Erasmus funding.”
Emma Stevens, also 20 years old, echoed the same views. She said: “We don’t want the other European countries to hold the same view of us leaving the EU.”
Worrying times ahead for those of us that live within the EU. Theresa May will be in line for a tough week full of hard questions this week as the Brexit deadline draws ever nearer.
