The superintendent of Greater Manchester Police has ordered the relocation of the National Stop Brexit rally and march being held to coincide with the Conservative Party Conference on Sunday, October 1st.
After consultation with an independent security expert, Greater Manchester Police have now sited the rally at All Saints Park and decided the march will terminate at the junction of Portland Street and Princess Street. The march has also been instructed to depart half an hour earlier at 1.30 p.m.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but these are circumstances beyond our control.
One day in June 2016, 17.2 million people indicated in an Advisory Referendum that they wished to Leave the EU. Parliament had not set a threshold for the referendum result, as would normally be expected for such a major, unprecedented constitutional change. The Conservative government chose to interpret the Advisory Referendum as a mandate to implement Brexit, interpreting it as ‘the will of the people’. This despite the widespread acknowledgment that the campaign leading up to the Advisory Referendum was misleading to voters on both sides.
