Brexit march: Huqndreds of thousands of people have shown their stand

In the June 23, 2016 referendum, 17.4 million voters, or 52 percent, backed Brexit while 16.1 million, or 48 percent, backed staying in the bloc.

And now we may observe many of thousands of people opposed to Britain’s decision to withdraw from the EU marched through central London to demand a new referendum as the deepening Brexit crisis risked sinking Prime Minister Theresa May’s position.

Almost three years of debate and it is still not clear how, when or if Brexit will happen…

Marchers set off in central London with banners “the best deal is no Brexit” and “we demand a People’s Vote”. Organisers said there was more than one million people strong and the biggest anti-Brexit protest yet.

People, the country and its politicians are divided over Brexit, but most agree it is the most important strategic decision the United Kingdom has faced since World War Two.

Thousands of pro-EU protesters gathered for the “Put it to the people march” at Marble Arch on the edge of Hyde Park around midday, before marching through the landmarks Picadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square and past the prime minister’s office in Downing Street to finish outside parliament.

It may be London’s second biggest demonstration after a rally against the Iraq War in February 2003, which organisers said close to 2 million people attended.

Some politicians, including from the governing Conservative Party, addressed a crowd, which packed out Parliament Square and left some unable to get near. Among them was Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson, who swung behind a People’s Vote on May’s deal despite party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s reticence on the issue, and Scottish National Party leader Nicola Sturgeon.

Some consider Brexit as big mistake and predict a huge economic recession and some consider it as chance to start a new period in the country’s history.

Many thoughts many voices, but only the time will show who is right…
