I will be marching in London on Saturday, as part of the People’s Vote march.
In 2016, I couldn’t vote, despite having lived in England, built a family and paid taxes since 1995.
Together with British in Europe, Final Say for All and EU Citizens’ Champions, we demand a vote for EU citizens in the UK and British citizens in the EU, if there is a second referendum.
Together, we are 5 million people and I am ‘one of the five million’.
Meet us on Saturday at 11AM at Speakers’ Corner (Tube: Marble Arch) for a pre-march rally. More details and registration.
See you there if you feel we deserve a vote, because we are the people too!
The meet-up will see activists speak briefly about the campaigns to protect our rights, before we proceed to join the People’s Vote march, marching together under the banner of ‘The Five Million’. That is how many we are — EU citizens in the UK and Britons in EU countries: we are all one of the five million.
You are all welcome to bring your own banners etc, but we want to try and make a strong visual statement of togetherness as we march shoulder to shoulder! To do that we agreed to all wear white to make that visual statement, so we would like to encourage you to please join us and wear white (at least a white top / white shawl to wrap around etc).🔷
