On Saturday October 20th 2018, more than fifty Bremainers joined an estimated crowd of over 700,000 people to march for a #peoplesvote.
The purpose of the march was to demonstrate the strength of feeling up and down the country for a #finalsay on whatever Brexit deal is negotiated, with the option to Remain, and was organised by both the People’s Vote group and The Independent newspaper’s Final Say campaign – links to both are at the bottom of this page.
Many Bremainers taking part had also bought Bremain branded T shirts and Baseball caps – they will be available soon for anyone to purchase – and they carried UK, Spanish, European and Bremain flags.
The atmosphere was incredible with many chanting for a People’s Vote (as well as another saying well known to the Remain community!). Bremainers also met some people marching who had voted Leave in the referendum but regret their choice and now believe that we need to have a say on what that deal looks like.
Bremainers met at Green Park Tube station at 11:15 and left to join the march at 12:00, but due to sheer numbers, it took them three hours to get back to Green Park! There was plenty of Remain themed music along the route too and we’ve used one of those tracks to share with you in our video below.
In order to keep up momentum following the March, the People’s Vote group have a new campaign called Write this Wrong. It’s about sending a message to MPs, who will vote very soon on the final Brexit deal, that we want a people’s vote. You can take part by clicking on this link – Write this Wrong
Over one million people have now signed The Independent newspaper’s petition for a Final Say. If you haven’t yet signed it, please click this link to do so – The Final Say Petition
