March for Change protest in London - Saturday 20th July

July 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Anti-Brexit March for Change protest in London on Saturday

Anti-Brexit campaigners are taking to the streets of central London this weekend with a simple message - 'no to Boris yes to Europe'.

No to Boris Yes to Europe

The March for Change has been organised by grassroots groups fighting against Brexit. The organisers say they want to send a clear message to the new prime minister, country and world that the people want Brexit to be stopped.

It will take place days before the new prime minister - likely to be Boris Johnson - is sworn in.

Organisers say their message will be "proudly pro-European, coming at a time of national emergency, when a new hard-Brexit prime minister will be imposed on the nation by a tiny selectorate (0.2% of the population) of unrepresentative Conservative members."

Supporters of the march include Best for Britain, Scientists for EU, the NHS for a People's Vote, InFacts, Women for a People's Vote, Britain for Europe, Grassroots for Europe, Remainer Now and Bremain in Spain.

It also has the backing of anti-Brexit political parties including the Greens, Lib Dems, Plaid Cymru, SNP, Independent Group for Change and the Women's Equality Party.

When is the March?

The March takes place at 12pm on Saturday 20th July 2019.

Where is the March?

Campaigners will meet at Park Lane besides the Hilton Hotel at midday and then march to Parliament Square where there will be a number of speakers lined-up.

Grassroots groups and ordinary citizens are organising coaches to the march from all over the UK.

Further details can be found on the March for Change website.

Note: There is also a local march on Saturday in Woodbridge starting at 2pm for those unable to get to London.
