Thousands Take to Streets in London Against Brexit Vote

London, July 2 (RHC)-- Thousands of people have taken to the streets in London, in a second show of public anger this week over the county’s vote to leave the European Union.

Protesters, most of them young adults, gathered on Park Lane on Saturday and marched towards the Houses of Parliament, while holding banners with slogans such as "I'm with EU" or simply "Wrexit."

Many people were draped in EU flags, while many others chanted slogans like: “What do we want to do? Stay in the EU."  

A similar rally was organized earlier this week in Trafalgar Square, but was cancelled due to heavy rain. Tens of thousands of people turned up anyway to show their anger over the vote which left the country in an uncertain situation.

Last week, British people voted to leave the European Union by a margin of 52 to 48 percent. The narrow victory triggered anger in Britain among those who wanted to remain in the union and caused some people who voted for 'Leave' to feel regret.
