People’s vote march : unity for change

 

As the country protested against Brexit on Saturday 20 October, the crowd numbers are estimated over 700,000.

The march that demanded a second vote on the Brexit deal, saw speakers like Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, Deborah Measden, business woman, MPs and youngsters from across the UK.

 

Delia Smith, celebrity chef, said: “When the vote happened, we were not fully informed. Now we know, dire consequences that can be summed up in just two words- unmitigated chaos.”

 

Christian Broughton, Editor, The Independent, told the crowds that their Final Say campaign gained 940,000 signatures, adding “I’m sure we will have more by the end of today.” The campaign has come a long way from 500,000 signatures in August.

A new campaign was also initiated at the march called #WriteThisWrong which encouraged people to write to their local MPs asking for a second vote.

On the other hand, the Leave EU campaign was not convinced that there will be a second referendum.

 

 

With no response from Downing Street yet, the question remains “What’s next for Brexit?”
