Hastings banner hoisted on anti-Brexit march
A Hastings contingent, complete with banner, was among those who joined the Unite for Europe march in London last Saturday. The photo was sent to HOT by Stewart Rayment.
Tens of thousands took part in the march, according to the BBC. Their call for Britain to remain in the European Union coincided with the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, which founded the EU’s forerunner, the European Economic Community.
A minute’s silence to remember the victims of the Westminster attack was held ahead of speeches at a rally in Parliament Square.
The rally was addressed by ex-Labour spin doctor Alistair Campbell, the Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, Labour MP David Lammy and Green co-leader Jonathan Bartley, among others.
Today, Wednesday 29 March, Prime Minister Theresa May will activate article 50 of the Lisbon treaty, triggering the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.
