The ‘Put it to the People March’ is set to be one of the biggest ever demonstrations, as disillusioned voters from around the UK flock to the capital to rebel against Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union. The pro-European group will march from Park Lane to Parliament Square demanding now is time for Parliament to “put it to the people”. The People’s vote campaign has condemned the UK’s disorderly withdrawal from the bloc and stated “politicians on all sides have botched the process from start to finish”.
A spokesman told Express.co.uk: “Hundreds of thousands of people will march on Parliament on Saturday, roaring with defiance and demanding that whatever MPs decide, it’s only fair to put it to the people.
“Some politicians will this week try to offer alternative forms of Brexit as a compromise and it may yet be that there is a deal that can off-set some of economic damage that current proposal would inflict. But it cannot be a compromise to impose any form of Brexit on people without them having the final say.
“When politicians on all sides have botched the process from start to finish, it’s time to put it to the people.”
Today’s march is expecting to exceed the number of people who took part in October 2018 which stood at an astounding 700,000.
The high-profile attendees will include Labour Deputy leader Tom Watson, Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon, Justine Greening MP and Lord Heseltine, the former Conservative cabinet minister.
Mr Watson said: “Brexit is stuck in the Parliamentary pipework. The impasse works for neither Leavers or Remainers.
“I have come to the reluctant view that the only way to resolve this is for the country to have the final say. Tomorrow I will join the #PutItToThePeople march.”
Meanwhile Ms Greening said: “Britain needs to find a way out of Theresa May’s Brexit shambles.
“Thats why I’ll be on the People’s Vote march to stop the madness.”
Momentum against the Government and Theresa May has grown this week and demonstrated by the surge in support from the public to cancel Brexit altogether.
More than 3.6 million people have now signed a petition on the Parliament website to revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU.
However, the Prime Minister rejected claims that public opinion had changed and insisted the Government will deliver on the will of the 17.4million people who voted to leave.
Mrs May said: “If you look back to what happened in the referendum, we saw the biggest democratic exercise in our history.
“And there was a clear result that we should leave the European Union.
“We said here’s the vote, what is your decision, and we will deliver on it.
“And I believe it’s our duty as a Government and as a Parliament to deliver on that vote.”
The ‘Put it to the People March’ will see thousands of people down Piccadilly and St. James’s Street, through Trafalgar Square and along Whitehall to Parliament Square where a rally is expected to begin at 2.30pm and end just before 4pm.
