On the 23rd of March 2019, an estimated one million people went on a march from Park Lane to Parliament Square. The march was in protest against Brexit and many were calling for a second referendum. Many people, whether they voted leave or remain, were disappointed with Theresa May’s deal and are seeking an alternative.
People were chanting: “What do we want? People’s vote”! “When do we want it? Now”! There were many signs and slogans expressing people’s views. People were standing on lampposts with massive posters. There was music and even a marching band playing a range of songs including Dancing Queen by Abba.
The march lasted over six hours and some people had to wait four hours just to start moving. Meanwhile, a record breaking online petition on Parliament’s website called for article 50 to be revoked with 5.7 million signatures.
Many people hope that the march and petition will help persuade the government to hold a second referendum.
