The March

The National Stop Brexit March in Manchester on 1 October 2017

Join us on 1 October 2017 in Manchester on our National March to demand that Brexit is stopped.

The Stop Brexit March is a national protest, supported by A C Grayling and Alastair Campbell, and many other prominent public figures .  It brings people together from across the country on Sunday 1 October 2017 in a protest at the Conservative Party Conference: to demand one thing – #StopBrexit

Marching in Manchester on the first day of the Tory party conference offers the opportunity for our voices to be actually heard by Theresa May and her colleagues in the Convention Centre.

Schedule of events:

We will be gathering from 11 a.m. at All Saints Park, where we are holding a large rally with many prominent critics of Brexit including Vince Cable, Bonnie Greer, Alastair Campbell, Dirk Hazell and Alison McGovern MP and leading grassroots activists campaignig on issues around Brexit, whilst the groups from all over UK arrive.  All marchers should aim to be there by no later than 12 noon.

  • The march will line up on Oxford Road, with the front end at All Saints Park and the back is expected to be on the section of Oxford Road by Whitworth Park. It has has to be assembled and ready to depart at 1.30 p.m.
  • From there,  we will be marching along the Oxford Road to the Convention Centre, where the Conservative Party Conference will be in full session.
  • The march will then loop back east,  in the direction of Piccadilly and come to an end at the junction  of Portland Street and Princess Street.

We would encourage marchers to sign up to join the street party being organised by the local remain groups Manchester for Europe and NW4EU, at starting from 2 p.m. before making their way home.

The Float

The march will be preceded by a special float, designed by the world-famous float-builder Jacques Tilly who most recently built the Donald Trump float used by Greenpeace at the WTO conference in early summer.

Kept securely hidden until the opening day of the conference which also happens to be Theresa May’s Birthday. This will certainly be a surprise for her as we reawaken the satirical humour of Spitting Image.

 

It’s essential that the Conservative Party and the rest of the world know that we want to stop Brexit. So please come dressed in blue, with yellow accessories, and EU flags, banners and placards. And bring drums, whistles, horns and claxons to make some noise.

We are working with full approval from Greater Manchester Police. It would really help us to help them if we have a good idea of how many people we are expecting, so please head on over to our EventBrite page  to register your interest, or sign up through our Facebook event page. There’s no cost for tickets, we just need to know how many people we are expecting.

Make no mistake: this is a #StopBrexit demonstration.
