Hundreds of thousands of people marched in London last October for a People’s Vote on the final deal for Brexit. It was the biggest march since the anti-war protest in 2003 and sent a powerful message to our politicians here and in the rest of Europe that there is huge support for another vote.
It was a beautiful, sunny day and everyone was good natured and friendly. I have been on every march since the referendum and it was the only one when due to the sheer scale of numbers that I arrived in Parliament Square long after the speeches had finished. There were people from all walks of life and from every corner of the country and many families with young children who will never enjoy the rights and privileges I have been fortunate enough to enjoy and benefit from for almost my whole adult life, if Brexit goes ahead.
The Put it to the People march planned for 23rd March is so important. Tell everyone about it. It will only be six days before the UK is currently due to leave the European Union and it is a matter of urgency that as many people as possible come. It may be our last chance. We know far more now about the damaging consequences of Brexit than we did almost three years ago and those consequences will be with us for generations to come. There is too much to lose and it is still not too late.
