On Saturday 23 March, the 'Put it to the People' march will take over central London. It is expected to be the largest protest march in British history.

An unprecedented number of members of anti-Brexit group, Bremain in Spain ( http://www.bremaininspain.com ), will be flying to London to march in support of the campaign to back a People's Vote on Brexit.

John Moffett, vice chair of Bremain in Spain, says: "This will be one of the most important marches ever, no matter what happens this week in the Commons. If Theresa May is allowed to have three meaningful votes when nothing has changed with her proposed deal, then we must demonstrate our commitment to a People's Vote. In contrast, a lot has changed re public sentiment since 2016."

Sue Wilson, chair of Bremain in Spain, says: "We've supported the campaign for another referendum from the start, and we've actively campaigned to give the British public another say in this debate. The Brexit that was sold was a lie, a fantasy, a pipe-dream. The British public deserves a chance to think again."

"The June 2016 referendum result started a Brexit nightmare for UK citizens living in the EU and EU citizens living in the EU. Since then, we've been working together to make our voices heard. We've been side-lined and silenced for too long. On Saturday, we'll be loud and proud and demanding another referendum. Although most of us couldn't vote on our own futures in June 2016, and it's unlikely that we'll be able to vote in the next referendum, we wholeheartedly support a #PeoplesVote."

Wilson concludes: "The public must be able to make an informed decision based on the facts, not the fantasy. We must establish if Brexit really is the 'will of the people' before making this momentous decision. It's the only way forward that can start to heal the divisions created by Brexit. If Theresa May can keep asking parliament the same question, how can she deny the public a second chance? As our new banner says: we want a voice, a vote and a final say, because Brexit is bonkers!"

Over 100 Bremain in Spain members are expected to attend the 'Put it to the People' event and will march alongside other citizens' rights groups including: In Limbo Project, Brexpats-Hear our voice and Españoles de Reino Unido, which represents Spanish citizens living in the UK.


Bremain in Spain is a group campaigning for the UK to remain in the European Union and to protect the rights of British migrants living and working in Spain. Run by a team of volunteers and chaired by Sue Wilson - a resident of the Valencian Community - the group advocates a tolerant and outward-looking society. It believes this is best achieved by the UK remaining a member of the EU. Bremain in Spain is part of the British in Europe coalition of 10 UK citizens' groups across the EU. It is also affiliated to Britain for Europe and European Movement.
