The number of protesters calling for a second referendum to have hit the streets of London on Saturday has climbed to one million, according to a tweet by the People's Vote UK organisers.
The protesters marched from Park Lane to Parliament Square, chanting slogans and holding banners calling for a second referendum on Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union after a tumultuous week that saw... Еще the EU agree to an extension of the Brexit deadline.
“I think we'll get either a Peoples' Vote or she'll revoke Article 50. She's [UK Prime Minister Theresa May] got no choice now,” one pro-EU protester remarked.
The EU-27 agreed on Thursday to delay Brexit until May 22, if MPs approve Theresa May's Withdrawal Deal next week. If they do not, there will be a shorter delay until April 12.
The UK government will be able to seek a longer extension if it can come up with a plan and agree to participate in the upcoming European Parliament elections by April 12.
