On October 19th hundreds of people from the North East joined hundreds of thousands of people from across the country to take part in the People's Vote march in London, calling on Parliament to give everyone a #finalSay on Brexit.
It's all very well for the prime minister and his supporters to talk about democracy, but nobody knows what the majority of voters want any longer - the referendum was over three years ago. There are two million people who couldn't vote in 2016 but are now able to vote and are entitled to have their say, and they easily outnumber the 1.4 million majority that the Leave campaign had in 2016. And that's before you take account of all those who might have changed their views now that we all know more about Brexit/.
Thank you to everyone who joined the march in London, and to all those who couldn't go but sent messages of support.
The law now requires the government to ask for another extension. North East for Europe and the People's Vote campaign are asking everyone who agrees with us to sign a new letter to the Government and to European leaders, calling on them to enable us all to have the final say on the Brexit deal.
