Thousands Rally to Support U.K. Opposition Leader Corbyn as He Faces No-Confidence Vote

HeadlineJun 28, 2016

In London, thousands of people rallied outside Parliament to show support for opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, who faces a no-confidence vote amid a revolt within his own Labour Party after Britain voted to leave the European Union. Addressing supporters, Corbyn called for unity against racism.

Jeremy Corbyn: “One of the horrible disfigurements of our society is racism, is intolerance, and the violence that’s often associated with it. And sadly, this has increased over the last few days. Can we all agree we are going to unite together as one people, one society, one community to oppose racism?”

Britain’s vote to leave the EU continues to send shock waves throughout the global economy. On Monday, Standard & Poor’s downgraded the U.K.’s credit rating from the perfect score of AAA down to AA.
