THOU­SANDS of anti-Brexit marchers de­scended on West­min­ster to de­mand that Bri­tain stays in the Euro­pean Union.

Or­gan­is­ers es­ti­mated at least 50,000 pro­test­ers marched through cen­tral Lon­don be­fore con­verg­ing on Par­lia­ment Square on Satur­day Septem­ber 9 for a rally. Later, Sir Bob Geldof and Lib­eral Demo­crat for­mer cab­i­net min­is­ter Sir Ed Davey will ad­dress the crowds gath­ered in the square.

The Peo­ple’s March For Europe car­ries the mes­sage “unite, re­think and re­ject Brexit” and or­gan­is­ers said leav­ing the EU “no longer holds cred­i­bil­ity in­side West­min­ster, let alone on the streets of Bri­tain”.

It comes days af­ter politi­cians re­turned to par­lia­ment fol­low­ing the sum­mer re­cess and ahead of a crit­i­cal Brexit vote.

A sea of blue and yel­low Re­main­ers amassed out­side the Houses of Par­lia­ment, some draped in EU flags, while oth­ers held them aloft.

Blue wigs, berets and other head­gear were in abun­dance, as were Exit From Brexit plac­ards.

A few could be seen wear­ing blue T-shirts with the words Re­moaner Till I Die.
