Brexit: 1 Million Take to Streets to Call for 2nd Referendum

HeadlineMar 25, 2019

In Britain, an estimated 1 million demonstrators filled the streets of London Saturday calling for a new referendum on Brexit. The fate of Britain’s exit from the European Union remains in the balance days after EU officials agreed to delay it at least until April 12, while Prime Minister Theresa May attempts to convince lawmakers to approve a deal. Political leaders addressed crowds at Saturday’s protest. This is London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Mayor Sadiq Khan: “The British people didn’t vote for the government to gamble on our future. … You didn’t vote for the national nightmare we have. It’s time to give you, us, the British people, a final say on Brexit.”
