The campaign has a simple demand -” that ‘any Brexit is put to the people so that we can have the final say”.
The march comes after the EU extended Brexit to May 22. Granted Prime Minister Theresa May can get MPs to back her deal. Rejection of the deal may lead to an even longer extension, or a proposal for the UK to return to EU till April 12 with a new deal.
