Hundreds of thousands of people opposed to Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union are marching through central London to demand a new Brexit referendum.
Marchers set off in central London with banners proclaiming “the best deal is no Brexit” and “we demand a People’s Vote” in what organisers said could be the biggest anti-Brexit protest yet.
While there was no official estimate of the numbers, campaign organisers said hundreds of thousands of people were in the crowd as it began to march.
Organisers were confident that the size of the crowd would exceed a similar rally held in October when supporters said about 700,000 people turned up.
Two hundred coaches from around Britain were booked to take people to London for the march.
A petition to cancel Brexit altogether gained over four million signatures in just three days after British Prime Minister Theresa May told the public “I am on your side” over Brexit and urged MPs to get behind her deal.
An online petition demanding the Government stops the Brexit process had topped four million signatures by this morning.Tags:
