Record 4 million signatures for petition: Protest against Brexit, tens of thousands of people on London streets

Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the UK are expected on the streets of London on Saturday to seek a new referendum on Brexit. More than a million people are expected to seek a second referendum on Britain’s withdrawal from the EU, after a similar gathering attracted to estimates of 700,000 people.

A protest march in London began with which citizens of the city want to announce that Brexit should give up or at least allow another referendum.

The greatest danger to the UK if it does not come to an agreement is that the European Union will have to leave without any agreement that could have a devastating effect on the country’s economy and political stability.

Layla Moran, a spokeswoman, said the petition that has gathered more than 4.18 million signatures to “give the wind to the cradle” requests for yet another Brexith referendum.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan from the Opposition Labor Party and the head of the Scottish National Party, Nicola Sturgeon, are also in the process.

“I will go tomorrow with people from all corners of our country, to urge the British people to decide on Brexit,” Khan said. Sturgeon said she was proud of what to speak in the procession.

Prime Minister Theresa May has repeatedly rejected calls for a second referendum despite parliament’s agreement on leaving the European Union so far.

EU leaders and May agreed on Brexit’s postponement this week and removed the possibility of Britain leaving the block on March 29.

On Saturday morning, the number of petitioners calling for the British government to withdraw Article 50 on the withdrawal of Britain from the European Union has risen to more than four million.

Since the opening of the site on which the incentive can be signed, the server has been demolished several times due to overload. Namely, too many people at the same time wanted to sign an incentive.

The British Parliament’s Petitions Committee said 96 percent of the signatures came from the United Kingdom, but also those overseas because anyone who is a British citizen has the right to sign a petition, regardless of where he lives.

This petition has currently collected three times more signatures, but all pro-Brexit petitions together.

Margaret Anne Georgiadou, organizer of the petition, wrote that “the government claims that leaving the EU is the will of the people. We need to put an end to this false claim by showing support for staying in the EU!”
