“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 12 Regional Rallies are being set up as collaborative initiative of simultaneous protests by local remain groups across the country, one for each of the 12 EU constituencies in the UK.  Continue reading “Stop Brexit organisers call on remainers to support Regional Rallies”

Skewed Protest Coverage increases Suspicions of BBC Bias

As the biggest of the protests at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester, the Stop Brexit March in Manchester received huge media coverage, both before and after the event, by hundreds of newspapers and magazines, TV and radio broadcasters, nationally, locally and worldwide.

While there was difference in their coverage, they were mostly in agreement that there were tens of thousands of peaceful protesters, and that the march was larger than that of the People’s Assembly, which marched later that day.

There was however one glaring exception. Continue reading “Skewed Protest Coverage increases Suspicions of BBC Bias”

Remainers of the Right rally round Tory Rebel

Dirk Hazell, the leader of UK EPP

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.

Facebook Block Causes Havoc To Grassroots Stop Brexit Activists

Several dozen grassroots remain movement leaders were blocked from posting or commenting on Facebook yesterday, disrupting the promotion and organisation of #StopBrexit National March in Manchester on 1 October.

Anyone sharing the official event page received a message from Facebook that they were barred until 3 October, preventing them from sharing any details about the protest until after it had taken place, which quickly fueled suspicions that someone was attempting to sabotage the march.

Blair backs Manchester ‘Stop Brexit’ march

Ahead of this Sunday’s ‘Stop Brexit’ march in Manchester, Tony Blair told The Mancunion that the people of Manchester should “speak up now before it is too late”.

Speaking to The Mancunion, he said: “Manchester is a remain city. A warm and welcoming city, with a spirit like no other. Those who feel passionately that their future is in the hands of others who do not have their best interests at heart, who feel this decision will harm our country for generations to come should take this opportunity to demonstrate their strength of feeling against this Hard Brexit.”

Using a Manchester-specific football analogy to explain his position, Mr Blair said: “If we go ahead with this, we will have taken the unprecedented decision for a major country to relegate ourselves, like United or City deciding to play in the Championship. This is madness.”
