ANTI-Brexit campaigners from Stratford joined thousands of fellow demonstrators on the People’s Vote March in London at the weekend.
The march was organised by a coalition of national pro-European groups with the aim of putting pressure on the government to give MPs the option of voting in favour of a people’s vote on any final Brexit deal. It is estimated more than 700,000 marched through the streets of the capital to Parliament Square.
Chair of Stratford4Europe Jonathan Baker said: “It was hugely uplifting and inspirational to be among three quarters of a million people from all walks of life, all political persuasions and all parts of the country who all share in common the deeply held belief that Britain is better off being part of the European Union.
“Particularly impressive was the number of young people on the march. This really brought home the fact that Brexit is about what kind of country we want Britain to be in the future.
“Although the march was very good-humoured there was a shared conviction that the only way out of the looming crisis of a ‘bad deal’ or, even worse, a ‘no deal’ is to put the final decision about our EU membership back to the people.’”
Stratford4Europe will have a street stall in Stratford on Saturday (October 27).
