Over 200 supporters from Open Britain Shrewsbury will be travelling to London on Saturday 20 March to take part in People’s Vote March for the Future.
These supporters will be filling four coaches and joining an anticipate crowd of over 100,000 from all over the UK in what promises to be the biggest protest yet demanding a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.
Open Britain Shrewsbury chairman, Andrew Bannerman said: “Over the last months there has been a rising tide of support for a People’s Vote on whatever deal the Government brings back from its negotiations with the EU. This is too important a decision for our children and grandchildren to be left to a deeply divided and squabbling Parliament. We shall be marching for the future of our country.
“The people should have clear options placed in front of them – the Government’s Deal, No Deal, or Retaining our place as a leading member of the EU. The implications of each option should be clearly and succinctly explained. We were not offered this at the Referendum in 2016, so it is not a re-run. A People’s Vote is the only fair and democratic way out of the shambles we have witnessed since 2016.”
The London march begins at midday in Park Lane, finishing in Parliament Square. It promises to be kaleidoscope of colour and sound – home-made placards vying for space with banners, people with loudspeakers leading chants against Brexit and good-natured singing.
Young and old will be walking side by side, through the centre of London, including families pushing buggies, grandparents, teenagers, students, office workers, celebrities and members of parliament.
But the march is to be led by thousands of young people – students, apprentices and everyone starting out in life – whose voices 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.
