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.
Following further consultation with Greater Manchester police, the organisers of the Stop Brexit March are pleased to announce that the location of the assembly point for the march has now been confirmed as Whitworth Park.
Peter French, a spokesman for the Stop Brexit March, walked the route on Tuesday and is delighted with the new arrangements.
“Whilst this shortens the overall route by just under half a mile, it won’t have any effect on the impact of the march. On the contrary, we have had a lot of inquiries from families with young children wanting to take part, so this makes everything a little bit easier and safer for everyone.”
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.
Join us on the first of October in Manchester as we march on the Conservative Party Conference to demand that Brexit is stopped!
Marching there on the first day of the Conference offers the opportunity for our voices to be actually heard by the party members as they arrive at the Convention Centre.
Conference is where the party decides its policies, and politicians make new alliances. Manchester is where the party will have to face up the reality of Brexit. Manchester is where the power of the Brexit Bulldogs must stop. Manchester is where Brexit must be stopped.
As Guy Verhofstadt said, “Brexit is all about a cat fight in the Tory party that got out of hand“, it is time that we, the people, tell the Tories to end this madness and put the interests of the country first.
Help us give that message to the Tories at their conference – join us to march!
