Thousands of people are planning a march to Parliament in London to call for the UK to stay in the EU.
The Unite for Europe march is set to take place on the 25th of March. Therefore, meaning it shall coincide with the Government’s intended timeline for trigging Article 50.
The date also falls on the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, which in fact established the European Economic Community.
The protest site noted: “Brexit can be stopped.”
It also explained: “We can embolden our elected representatives. The vast majority of our MPs support our membership of the European Union, but are being railroaded into a catastrophe by reckless and incompetent leadership.
‘There is a long, unpredictable road ahead that Parliament will have some (hopefully much!) control over; they need to know just how many votes there are in adopting a pro-EU position. With our vocal support, they can stop Brexit.”
On Tuesday the Supreme Court ruled the Government could not trigger article 50 without approval from Parliament which left remain voters quite pleased.
There are now more than 5,000 people planning to go and another 11,000 have said they are interested in attending.
Plus the organisers have launched a last minute crowdfunding campaign to cover costs of speakers, security, first aiders and other essential costs.
The march is seen as a last chance for the UK to remain within the EU.
One campaigner said he has seen a copy of the full statement issued to MPs and Lords: “Some MPs will of course vote against, but it is also clear that those MPs who disagree but who don’t wish to vote against their party will abstain.’
‘The mood in the House of Lords is very sombre tonight, we need this to be the biggest march ever.”
The march takes place on Saturday the 25th of March at 11am.
