Hats off to Tonbridge Labour group for reacting quickly to the prorogation. The gathering in Tonbridge today had all-party support, with lots of Greens, LibDems and some remarkably outspoken Conservatives saying they’d voted Conservative all their lives and never would again. The demonstration included a number of Leave Voters were there too, objecting to the way Take Back Control was leading to Boris Johnson’s power-grab from parliament.
Heather Martin reports having walked to the demo with her “Yes to Europe. No to Boris” sign and being stopped by young people saying “Thank you for doing this!”
SSTIE Members were present in the T0nbridge and London demonstrations.
