Thousands join London march to demand Brexit deal referendum

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (JUNE 23, 2018) (UK POOL) – Around 100,000 supporters of the European Union marched through central London on Saturday (June 23) to demand that the British government hold a final public vote on the terms of Brexit, organisers said.

Protesters packed the main arteries of the capital, waving British, Irish and European flags and colourful banners to call for a “People’s Vote” on the eventual deal in which Britain leaves the world’s biggest trading bloc.

Hundreds also attended a pro-Brexit counter-protest in the capital carrying Union flags and St George’s flags.

On the second anniversary of the 52 to 48 percent Brexit vote, polls show political divisions are entrenched. Despite some confusion over what Brexit will actually mean there has been no clear change of heart.
