The Put it to the People March

Estimates vary between 1 and 2 million for the total number of participants who marched on Saturday 23rd March calling for a second referendum. The BBC published dramatic helicopter-shot video of the crowd, which stretched all the way from the top of Park Lane to Parliament Square:

Hundreds of West-Kent residents calling for a “People’s Vote” on Brexit prepared placards and descended on London last Saturday. Some members of the remain-supporting group Sevenoaks and Swanley Together in Europe (SSTIE) assembled at Sevenoaks station to travel as a group.

Many more went in smaller groups earlier to put up visual displays supporting their causes, or later in order to go straight to Parliament Square to hear the afternoon’s speeches by Lord Heseltine, Anna Soubry, David Lammy, Steve Coogan, Nicola Sturgeon and Sadiq Khan.

What a brilliant day and how good to see so many from Sevenoaks and surrounding areas assembling for the trains on Saturday morning

Some displays and placards were exceptional and none more so than that produced by Magda Williams, a committee member of Sevenoaks and Swanley Together in Europe (SSTIE) which was truly remarkable:

Magda was representing nearly 400 people calling for another referendum. Her family is originally from Hungary but she is likely to move to Austria if the UK does leave the EU.
