Dubbed the People’s Vote March, it lead protesters through central London to Parliament Square. Organisers claim another public vote is needed after new facts emerged about the cost and complexity of Britain’s exit from the European Union, which is scheduled for 29 March 2019.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan began the march on Saturday morning and had strong words for the press.
“What’s clear is that the only options on the table now from the prime minister are a bad Brexit deal, or no deal whatsoever,” he told the BBC.
“That’s a million miles away from what was promised 2 and a half years ago.
“What’s really important is that those that say that a public vote is undemocratic, is unpatriotic, realise that in fact, the exact opposite is the truth. What could be more democratic, what could be more British, than trusting the judgement of the British people.”
The march was reportedly supported by a number of MPs despite Prime Minister Theresa May ruling out another vote on the matter.
