Hundreds of Stanmore residents join people’s vote march

 Published on: 12th April 2019   |   By: Alex Pearson   |   Category: Uncategorized

Up to a thousand Stanmore residents took to the streets of London to take part in a demonstration which saw millions march for a people’s vote. 

The march, from Park Lane to Parliament Square on Saturday, March 23, saw an estimated two million people take part, which makes it arguably Britain’s largest demonstration in the country’s history.

The Put It To The People march called on Parliament to give Britain’s voters the right to say yes or no to whatever deal MPs finally come up with on Brexit.

Local activists distributed thousands of leaflets in the Stanmore area. Urging people to join them. 

David Keys, Secretary of the Harrow and Hillingdon branch of the European Movement which has been organising the local campaign. 

He said: “The people of Britain have the right to say yes or no to whatever deal Parliament ultimately agrees on.

“When we all voted in the referendum almost three years ago, we had no idea of many of the implications of Brexit, let alone what the final deal might look like. 

“Now, because of the debates and other developments of the past few years, everybody is much better informed. Democracy did not stop three years ago. It is crucial that the public are given a final say. 

“This demonstration will be one of the most important ever held in British history. The crisis facing our country is arguably the worst since the Second World War. It’s crucial, at this critical time, that the public’s voice is heard loud and clear.”

Back in October, around 700,000 people took part in a people’s vote demonstration, including thousands from Stanmore and Harrow.
