March for a People's Vote

On June 23, Liberal Democrats with join with thousands of others in a march to Parliament Square to demand a vote on the final Brexit deal. Join us, for this historic event!

Tens of thousands of people from every part of the UK - as well as a contingent from Gibraltar - will fill central London on Saturday 23rd June to demand a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal in what will be the UK's biggest ever pro-European protest march.

The March for a People's Vote will be held on the second anniversary of the Brexit referendum. The campaign for a People's Vote, which for the first time unites every major pro-European campaigning organisation, is gearing up for a summer of action and mobilisation - with the focus on getting grassroots activists to lobby their MPs to support a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal.

Local campaign groups, have been working on building support for the march for some weeks and are reporting record levels of support:

  • Nine coaches have already been ordered to take supporters from Devon to the march.

  • Newcastle expects to send at least two coaches and over 100 people by train.

  • In Gibraltar supporters are fundraising with a target of getting 100 people from the Rock to come to the march.

Who is supporting the march?

The March for a People's Vote is being supported by organisations including Open Britain, the European Movement UK, Britain for Europe, Our Future our Choice, For our Future's Sake, Healthier In, Scientists for EU, Trade Deal Watch, Wales for Europe, In Facts and others.

What are we marching for?

A People's Vote on the final Brexit deal

The People's Vote campaign seeks to ensure that the government's Brexit deal is put before the country in a public vote so that we can decide if a decision that will affect our lives for generations makes the country better or worse off.

Good deal or bad deal, it's definitely a big deal - and that's why it should be put to a People's Vote.

Why are we marching for a People's Vote?

New facts have come to light about the costs and complexity of Brexit that no one could have known at the time of the referendum.

Promises made by politicians about Brexit, like more money for our NHS, are not going to be kept.

The Brexit process is a complete mess and the negotiations are going badly, which makes it more likely that we will get a bad deal.

The Westminster elite is making a mess of it.

When are we marching?

Saturday 23rd June, 2018.

We will be meeting at Pall Mall from 12.00pm. The march will finish in Parliament Square, where special guest speakers will address the crowd.
