LONDON Thousands of people today marched by London on Saturday to protest towards Britain leaving the European Union, just four days right before Primary Minister Theresa Could launches the start of the official divorce approach from the bloc it joined 44 many years in the past.
The Unite for Europe march was thanks to conclusion with a rally in Parliament Square, scene of this week’s assault by British-born Islam convert Khalid Masood in which four people today died.

“With these types of a shut vote, I really don’t see how everyone can call this the will of the people today,” she explained to Reuters. “We have so much to drop: environmentally, politically and fiscally.
“A awful mistake has been made but the predicament is not beyond redemption,” she extra.
Could has been adamant she intends to take Britain out of the EU following the referendum and will formally announce the start of the two-year leaving approach on Wednesday.
