In the present day, greater than half a million individuals from throughout the UK gathered in London for a protest march opposing the nation’s pending departure from the European Union.
The march, which organizers mentioned drew greater than 600,000 individuals to west London’s Park Lane, was known as by Folks’s Vote, a group campaigning for the general public to have a say on a ultimate Brexit deal to stop the ruling Conservative authorities from forcing it by Parliament.
A gathering of European Union leaders in Brussels this week, at which an settlement was to have been struck, as a substitute ended with main hurdles to be overcome. Because the March 29, 2019, deadline when Britain is to depart the EU attracts nearer, the twists and turns in negotiations have most people divided, traders and companies anxious and the pound weaker.
“A number of the guarantees made two years in the past, clearly haven’t materialized. No person was speaking about a dangerous Brexit deal, no one was speaking about no deal in any way. The British public ought to have a say on whether or not they settle for the result of these negotiations, with the choice of staying in the EU” London Mayor Sadiq Khan mentioned in feedback posted on the group’s web site earlier than the rally.
