There's Another People's Vote March In London Later This Month
At the last People's Vote march in March 2019

A third 'People's Vote' march comes to London later this month — as protestors yet again congregate in the capital, fighting for a say on the ultimate outcome of Brexit.

The Final Say march takes place in central London on Saturday 19 October. Protestors will gather at Park Lane at 12pm, marching to Parliament Square, where speeches from leading cross party politicians and celebrities will be staged.

The 'People's Vote' being demanded involves a second referendum, in which the British people would decide if they still wanted to leave the EU, and if so, on what terms.

Since the last People's Vote in March 2019, the likelihood of a No Deal Brexit seems to have snowballed, with prime minister Boris Johnson continuing to promise that the country will Brexit on 31 October 2019, even though the Benn Act decrees that if MPs haven't approved a deal in a meaningful vote, or approved leaving the EU without a deal by 19 October, then the PM must ask the EU for an extension.

Says the People's Vote website:

It's now clear that this is a crisis that cannot be settled by our prime minister or his government. It can only be settled by us, the people.

His Brexit crisis has now come down to a simple question about whether we live in a democracy: can we allow Boris Johnson to force No Deal — or another vicious form of Brexit — on our country, without all of us having our voice heard?

The Independent, which is supporting the march, claims that more than 170 coaches have been hired to transport protestors from across the country to London for the march. Estimates suggest that the crowd size of the last protest stood at 312,000-400,000 attendees, although some sources reckon a million-plus protestors will show up this time.
