Bremain in Spain marches against Brexit in Manchester

Bremain in Spain marches against Brexit in Manchester

WHILST Catalunya descended into chaos yesterday (Sunday), a protest march against another referendum was taking place over 1,500 kilometres away: tens of thousands hit the streets of Manchester in a huge ‘Stop Brexit’ march.
Among them were members of the campaign group Bremain in Spain, which represents the interests of Brits living in Spain or with holiday homes there who are concerned as to how far their lives will be affected by the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.
The 5,000 – and steadily increasing in number – members of Bremain in Spain were not all able to go, but the small number who did were represented by indefatigable group leader Sue Wilson, whose realistic and straight-to-the-point speech attracted whoops and cheers from the 50,000-plus who joined the march to the Conservative party conference being held in the north-western UK city.
The demonstration kicked off with Lib Dem leader and passionate anti-Brexit campaigner Vince Cable, philosopher AC Grayling and The New European‘s editor-in-chief Alastair Campbell giving their views.

Vince Cable: “The first thing Mrs May should do is protect citizens’ rights”

Sir Cable said he ‘hoped the Tories down the road’ were ‘listening’ to the crowd’s ‘very clear message’: “They are not all leavers; far from it. There are plenty of Tory activists who are very unhappy with the way things are going. I hope Labour are listening, as well – a lot of people forget about Jeremy Corbyn’s anti-EU stance.”
Sir Cable said there were many ‘specific things’ the UK government could be doing at the present time, the main issue to resolve being that of citizens’ rights, both Europeans in Britain and Brits in Europe. “Currently they are scared and many are leaving,” Vince, pictured here with Bremain in Spain’s Sue Wilson, revealed.
“If Theresa May is so confident she is going to get a good deal, why does she not put it to the public?” The Lib Dem leader wondered.
AC Grayling pointed out that those who oppose Brexit are ‘much more than 48%’ of adult British citizens, something Bremain in Spain’s Sue Wilson stressed in her speech, referring to those UK nationals living in the EU who were not allowed to vote in the referendum due to having been residing abroad for 15 years or more. Her punchily-delivered discourse came at the end of the march, after the 50,000 paraded down the streets of Manchester chanting en masse, ‘b******s to Brexit’.

Nobody should have their rights removed against their wishes”

Bremain in Spain protestors to march in Manchester to ‘Stop Brexit’

A GROUP campaigning for the rights of British citizens in Spain, will be making its presence felt at the Stop Brexit march in Manchester today (1 October).

Chair of the organisation, Sue Wilson, will be speaking at the event alongside ten other anti-Brexit speakers including Alastair Campbell, AC Grayling, Bonnie Greer and Alison McGovern..

Bremain in Spain is concerned that Theresa May made scant mention of the rights of British citizens in the EU27 and EU citizens in the UK during her Florence speech, giving very little reassurance to those who have been living in limbo ever since the referendum.

Sue Wilson says: “We hold the Tories responsible for the mess that is Brexit. Our voices must be heard – we have been invisible for too long.

“Members of Bremain in Spain will be marching at this event to demonstrate that our anger, fear and despair at Brexit has not dissipated and we’re not giving up.

Miles de británicos, contra el “monstruo” del Brexit

Miles de británicos, contra el “monstruo” del Brexit

El “monstruo” del Brexit marcó el camino. La criatura amorfa y fallera, con las cabezas de Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Michae Gove y David Davis, abrió la multitudinaria manifestación pro-europea de Manchester. Un río de banderas azules recorrió las calles de la ciudad industrial hasta las puertas del Hotel Midland, para cantar serenata a la premier en el arranque de la conferencia del Partido Conservador.

Por tercera vez en un mes, más de 50.000 británicos hicieron causa común y acudieron al reclamo anti-Brexit, que vuelve a sonar con fuerzas renovadas en medio del fiasco de la negociaciones y entre las divisiones que no cesan en el gabinete May. En un mensaje dirigido a los conspiradores de su propio partido, May declaró que piensa continuar en su puesto, culminar la salida de la UE y crear “un país que funcione para todos”.
