More than a million people march in London to stop Brexit

'Biggest ever' People's Vote march in London More than a million people march in London to stop Brexit

If MPs overcome numerous objections from "Brexiteers" and "Remainers" and approve the deal, Britain will leave the European Union on May 22.

A reported one million people took to the streets of London today to push for a second Brexit referendum, with the event bringing out what could be the most extensive and creative collection of placards you'll see all year.

Nearly three years after Britons voted to walk away from the European Union, the bloc's leaders this week seized control of the Brexit timetable from May to avert a chaotic departure on March 29 that would be disruptive for the world's biggest trading bloc and deeply damaging for Britain.

After EU leaders approved a reset of the Brexit timetable, Britain is left with four possible courses ahead of an all-important parliamentary vote on the divorce deal expected next week.

Other speakers included former Conservative cabinet minister Justine Greening and ex-attorney general Dominic Grieve, former Tory turned independent MP Anna Soubry, Lib Dem deputy leader Jo Swinson, Green Party MP Caroline Lucas and SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford.

"The prime minister and her government have proved completely incapable of delivering on the result of the 2016 vote, which is why it is right that this should now go back to the people", Sturgeon said on stage, according to the paper.

She added: "It would have to be about young people, about hope, about how the European Union enhances our lives, and we have to be really clear that a lot of the people who voted leave voted to give the establishment a bloody good kicking, so we would have to have social change as well". "The way to reunite our country is to decide on our future together".

The protest took place amid growing calls for Prime Minister Theresa May to resign. "Prime Minister, you've lost control of this process, you're plunging the country into chaos, let the people take control".

The fast sign-up rate crashed the website on Thursday.

Lawmakers are due to debate a government motion saying that parliament has considered a statement made by May on March 15 which set out the government's next steps on Brexit, including its plan to seek a delay.

Revoke Article 50**:** By midday on Monday more than 5.4 million people had signed a petition in favour.

That is worrying many people, who want the government to change its strategy. "A People's Vote may not happen - so vote now".

She also said she wasn't hoping for Parliament to respond to her petition, but she created it "to prove it is no longer the will of the people", she told the news organization.

But not everyone is convinced that those who voted in the original referendum have changed their minds.

Mariella Frostrup and Richard Bacon, who were hosting a rally in Parliament Square, told the crowds an initial count showed the amount of people taking part in the march had topped 1 million.

Conservative Party legislator George Freeman tweeted that a new leader is needed.

The BBC reports that Farage spoke to a group of about 200 pro-Brexit supporters and "said those gathering for the People's Vote march in London were not the majority".
