BREXIT: Campaigners from Gedling borough to join London march calling for People’s Vote


Campaigners from Gedling borough will be joining a nationwide march in London this weekend calling for a people’s vote on any Brexit deal.

People from the borough will be heading into Nottingham and boarding coaches early on Saturday morning to travel to London, to join thousands of others from all over the UK in what promises to be the biggest Brexit protest yet.

Susan Martin, one of the founding members of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire People’s Vote Group, said: “There’s been so much demand to go on the march that we’ve had to lay on extra transport and loads more people are making their own way there.

“It follows on from our campaigning in Nottinghamshire where we’ve noticed growing concern that Brexit is nothing like the rosy picture painted by the Leave campaign.  That’s why we’re seeing huge support for a People’s Vote on the final deal.”

The march in London on Saturday begins at midday in Park Lane, finishing in Parliament Square.

The march is being to led by thousands of young people – students, apprentices and everyone starting out in life – who campaigners say ‘have too often been ignored’.

Young people from across the nations and regions of the UK will also be amongst the speakers. Others addressing the crowd include: Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan; Business leader Deborah Meaden; and TV host and cook, Delia Smith.

More than 100,000 people took part in the last People’s Vote march in June and organisers say Saturday’s demonstration promises to be bigger and better.

  1. We have already had a “people’s vote”. It was the referendum, and was the biggest democratic mandate in our history. Let us not mince words. These protesters are fascists, attempting to pervert democracy.

  2. Khan, Medan and Smith. Ha! Like its likely to have any impact on their lives anyway. Some people need to butt out and respect the peoples vote we already had. What is it with this anti democracy rubbish. Not happy…lets have best of 3 ? Then what when you lose again…best of 5 ?
