The People’s Vote March was the second largest demonstration in modern British history.
700,000 people flooded the streets of central London, calling for a referendum on the final terms on any Brexit deal.
Nine coaches departed Bath on Saturday morning. One from the University of Bath and eight from Bath For Europe. Many more made their way to the capital by train and by car.
It was an inspiring day. The atmosphere around the march was electric. People peacefully marched in unity, equipped with a variety of hard-hitting chants and eye-catching placards.
The hunger for a referendum was palpable.
An estimated 100,000 people were due to attend. A figure seven-times that turned out.
The will of the people is clear. A People’s Vote is the only option. We must expose the Brexit lie, and make sure that lies will not prevail in a true democracy.
In 2016, the Leave campaign promoted fiction over facts, and even broke electoral law. It told tales of economic prosperity and renewed sovereignty. These lies have been exposed.
The People’s Vote gives the public the chance to assess how the negotiations have gone, and to express their opinion over the shambles that Brexit has become.
The cornerstone of enlightened thinking, is being able to change one’s mind based on new information. The public have the right to have the final say.
Wera said: “A referendum on the deal is exactly that, no more no less. It will settle the final decision to leave or not. Rather than wild promises about sunny uplands we will know what leaving actually looks like. On that basis people must have a final say.”
