Leeds for Europe are proud to launch the Great Northern March to #StopBrexit. Planned to co-incide with the one year anniversary of the triggering of Article 50, this will be one of the largest anti-Brexit demonstrations ever seen, and almost certainly the largest protest march ever seen in Yorkshire.
We have been working closely with Peter French and his team – organisers of the excellent Stop Brexit march in Manchester on 1 October last year and the massive Unite for Europe march in London in March 2017, attended by an estimated 120,000 people. Peter and his team have tremendous experience of publicising and organising events of the huge scale that we have in mind. The march in Manchester included contributions from Sir Vince Cable, Alistair Campbell, AC Grayling and many more and we are working to secure a similar – if not better – line-up of speakers for this march.
We are confident that this will be a fantastic event which will hopefully have a material impact on the Stop Brexit campaign.
But to do this we need a vast number of peope to participate, which is going to take a massive effort to spread the word far and wide. Please start now to share this page with your friends, family, work colleagues, political contacts and anyone you meet.
We are uniting the north of England for this event, and are expecting people to travel from across Yorkshire, Lancashire, the north east, the north west and the Midlands. In fact, this is intended to be an event of national significance.
Let us show the world that the people of Britain demand a Final Say on the Brexit deal and reserve the right to change our mind!
