Anyone in or near London should come to this anti-brexit march on Saturday 19th October at 12 noon at Speaker's Corner (Marble Arch corner of Hyde Park)

There'll be an emergency session of parliament sitting at the time so it's a perfect opportunity to tell Parliament that leaving the EU is NOT the will of the people.

But... isn't it the will of the people? They voted for it. Narrow margins, sure, but a brexit victory none the less.

52% of those that voted chose Leave but that's only 25% of the country as a whole.
It was an advisory vote only, not legally binding.
The supreme court has already ruled that if the referendum had been binding it would have been overturned because of how corrupt the vote was.
The Leave side broke the law and electoral rules in terms of funding and using people's private data for targeted advertising.
The Leave side lied over and over again a hundred times.
The way 'Leave' was described is categorically different to both of the two main contradictory versions of Brexit we're seeing (The Deal or No Deal).

Most importantly, that vote was four years ago.
Since then we're on our third prime minister with number 4 and maybe even 5 coming in the next six months (If a Vote Of No Confidence leads to a temporary government while we hold a full General Election). How come we're allowed to change our Prime Minister every year but the biggest decision on the future of the 60,000,000+ people isn't allowed to change ever?

The Government has tried to leave the EU, I'd argue they've even tried too hard by pressing for the strongest brexit possible when they only had a tiny majority for it. But what they've come up with is nothing like what was promised and we now have a mountain of evidence of how much damage leaving the EU would do. We're looking at Northern Ireland, Scotland and even Wales discussing leaving the UK, that definitely wasn't on the ballot paper four years ago. We've got the government's own impact assessment saying No Deal would cause delays at every port for a minimum of six months, shortages in food, fuel and drugs that will cost lives and jobs and millions from the general public.

All the polls and a series of meta-analysis, trend analysis and averaging on the polls all shows the majority of the public would now vote to Remain in the EU if the 2016 referendum were held today. Therefore to force us into an outcome we do not want and we know will cost money and lives is frankly barbaric. The only viable solution is to take it back to another referendum. Boris' Deal or Remain.

I bet Remain would win by more than Leave did if there was a more recent vote, but a protest isn't showing the "will of the people" unless about 17.4m were there.

You wouldn't want decisions made based on every time there was a protest for or against it rather than a vote and it won't change anyone's mind anyway. Pointless exercise.

The point of the protest is to show we want a proper vote.

There's a real chance this could happen, there are two separate votes in parliament today that could lead to a second Referendum.
