People’s Vote March for the Future to be held on October 20th 2018 in Central London.
Supporters of the People’s Vote campaign and hundreds of thousands of members of the public who demand a say on any final Brexit deal are being told to save the date for our biggest march yet – to be held in central London on October 20th.
Over 100,000 people marched on Parliament for a People’s Vote in June, but the People’s Vote March for the Future – inspired and led by young people who want a say on their future – is expected to be the biggest rally yet in support of a People’s Vote.
The People’s Vote March for the Future is timed to coincide with key votes in the House of Commons this autumn and will see tens of thousands of people descend on London to send a message to politicians: that Brexit is too important and too big to ignore - this is about the future of our country.
Amatey Doku, Deputy President of the NUS and a leader of For our Future’s Sake, one of the organisations campaigning for a People’s Vote, said:
“Just a couple of weeks ago, well over 100,000 people marched on Parliament to demand a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal. Now we’re asking our supporters to join young people in the People’s Vote March for the Future in London on October 20 – the biggest and loudest demonstration so far, to show that we, the people, demand a People’s Vote.
“Too often the debate about Brexit revolves around the fate of this or that politician. But this is about a whole lot more than the future of Boris Johnson, David Davis or any of them; this is about the future of our country. It’s not about whether Michael Gove and Liam Fox still have their job tonight; it’s about whether hundreds of thousands of people can look forward to having secure, prosperous, decent work in years to come.
“The crisis around Brexit deal is only going to get bigger. So our next protest has to be bigger and better. If our march is big enough and our voice loud enough, our MPs will have to take notice.”
