It would seem that we are approaching the endgame, and inevitably there is an element of despondence. All those ‘Remain’ actions over the last two years, the marches, the conferences, the ‘#StopBrexit’ events… and at this stage – unless something unexpected happens – it will all come down to a vote in the Parliament on a ‘deal’ (some version of ‘Chequers’) some time before this Christmas. In the meanwhile, there will be a major march in Central London on October 20, 2018 organised by the People’s Vote (PV), and this could be the last major ‘Remain’ event before the projected exit date in March 2019.
It is hard not to be despondent with so much political opportunism and moral cowardice among our leading politicians. Their objective is to make us passive, to somehow convince us that the inevitable will happen. However, nothing is inevitable and the power is in our hands. We need a show of force on 20 October 2018. Don’t let apathy overtake you. Make history – again. Make this march massive and give it the right character, bring your EU flags and make it a #StopBrexit march.
To be part of the #StopBrexit section of the march assemble from 11.30am at Marble Arch, London.
We are pleased to announce all 4 co-founders of Our Future Our Choice (OFOC) as speakers for the #StopBrexit Great Northern March on 24 March in Leeds.
Lara Spirit, Femi Oluwole, Will Dry and Calum Millbank-Murphy started OFOC out of frustration over the UK’s political leaders’ failure to face up to the real problems of the country – and their willingness go ahead with Brexit despite the damage it will cause.
Organisers of the grassroots #StopBrexit protest have called upon other remainers to join them in supporting the 12 Regional Rallies being planned by The 48% for October 14th.
Following the success of their march in Manchester, the Stop Brexit march organisers have announced their support for the next and final stage of the Autumn of Dissent protests against Brexit – the 12 Regional Rallies.
“We want to thank everyone who supported the march and rally”, says Peter French, the spokesman for the Stop Brexit March, “The march was a great success because you made it happen.”
“Now we ask you to support the local demonstrations being organised in your area. Spread the word, and lend a hand, give money where needed, but most important of all turn up and join in on the day.”
The organisers of the #Stop Brexit are pleased to announce the final line up of speakers for the #StopBrexit Rally in Manchester tomorrow.
Preceding the national march on the Conservative Party Conference, the Stop Brexit rally features a programme of prominent speakers presenting all colours of the political spectrum and none – key opponents to Brexit, that will shed light from different perspectives on the vast and horrific implications that Brexit has on all our lives .

The Conservative Party Conference which begins in Manchester this Sunday is in store for a full-day of programme of opposition organised by remain activists that will see the city draped in a sea of blue.
The #StopBrexit activists have a number of surprises planned , the most highly-anticipated of which is the special float commissioned for the march.
Designed by the famous artist Jacques Tilly, who also built the Donald Trump float which Greenpeace used at the WTO meeting in Hamburg, the float is now on its way to Manchester, where it is being kept under tight wraps as a surprise for the day, which is also Theresa May’s birthday.

When Britain joined the Single Market it was on terms set by Margaret Thatcher. It is therefore fitting that the man who developed the concept of the Single Market that Thatcher sold to the other European leaders will speak at the Stop Brexit Rally in Manchester this Sunday.
Dirk Hazell is the leader of the UK EPP and a true British European, who sacrificed his own future in the Tory Party for Britain’s future in Europe. His decision to speak at the Stop Brexit rally puts a renewed focus on several highly contentious issues within the Conservative Party, which is holding its annual conference in the same part of the city.
