Some impressions from the People's March 4 Europe

Today we were again in London for yet another #StopBrexit march. As with all the other ones before attendants were in good spirits and had turned out in large numbers.

Here are some photos taken on the way (also scroll down to find some links to newspaper articles about the march):


Approaching the march from behind on Park Lane, near Curzon Gate

The march started at the time stated in the info pack, at 12 noon!

Lots more marchers were queuing from the
direction of Hyde Park Corner Underground station.

They all had to wait for us!

The Lib Dems loud and proud.


Once all marchers from Park Lane had gone past
them, they were allowed to join in.

Walking down Piccadilly, next to Green Park.

"I'd rather be drinking tea right now!
NO RIGHT to take our EU RIGHTS.
BREXIT? Brexit? What the fu is Brexit?"

"Don't leave us stranded with Brexit idiots!"

On St James's Street.

St James's Palace in front of us.

Turning onto Pall Mall.


Chanting "This is insane - we must remain!"

"Newport Pagnell
Small towns
need close ties
and large markets!"

Exit Brexit
before GB sinks
Brexit costs too much!
We can't afford Brexit!"

Getting closer to Trafalgar Square



"Read the hat"

Finally down Whitehall, Big Ben is in sight.



"Hard Brexit is Hare-Brained"

"Brexshit"

"Brexit Circus"

At the end at Parliament Square was a
big screen showing what was going on on the stage.

Another hat.

Beautiful flags!

Winchester is a good place for a pro-EU gathering!

Today we had our Pro-EU gathering in Winchester at the Buttercross. It was a very friendly affair and while we encountered some Brexiters, the discussions remained civil. The great majority of people who approached us were agreeing with what we were there to represent: the will for the UK to remain a member state of the EU. Thank you to everybody who came along to support us!

The European Movement had set up their street stall from 2pm and some members of the Win-IN and The 48% - Winchester groups were there early to also join in with the fun of talking to people, and hand out EU flags to children and leaflets to interested grown-ups.


We had a some more people join us at 3pm which was the agreed time for our gathering. I only have a few photos which don't show all of the people who were there so this will have to do.


After this, a good number of us went to the pub to socialise a little among the different groups.

We are hoping to be working together with the European Movement again on organising some more of these afternoons!

Finally here are some photos of some of the leaflets that we were handing out today:

Tomorrow: another street stall by the European Movement

Again, if you should have some time tomorrow (2 September), go and have a look (or even better help!) at the second street stall that the local European Movement group has organised. They are gathering at the Buttercross in Winchester at 2pm and will join the Win-IN/The 48% - Winchester gathering at 3pm!

Wear something blue, bring a flag, come and support us! Spare just few minutes or couple of hours! It is the future of our children we are protecting.
