The People’s Vote March drew a crowd pegged at a million people flooded the streets of London on Saturday, protesting the disastrous policy and calling on a new referendum.
While the option of a second referendum on Brexit was once seen as unlikely, there's now a semblance of hope for those backing the vote. Prime Minister May has bungled the process and is faced with a variety of dubious options, including a yet-again delayed exit or even a no-deal Brexit that would have serious ramifications for world economy.
Dubbed "Put It To The People," Saturday's march saw around a million people participate, organizers said. The event also included a rally in front of Parliament. The Rally included members from across all parties.London Mayor Sadiq Khan was among those marching and he was scheduled to speak at the post-march rally.
In London, though, the streets were flooded with protesters holding quippy signs and marching in costume, all part of the growing movement to demand a new vote over leaving the EU.
For 29-year-old communications worker Naomi Penfold, taking the train down to London from Cambridge for Saturday's "Put It to the People" rally was daunting.
"It's been over 10 years since I have been on a march," she said. "Normally, we Brits stay quiet and grumble. But with Brexit there is too much at stake."
Armed with a homemade sign saying, "I'm British and I'm bothered," Penfold said she wants Brexit overturned, as smoothly as possible and as soon as possible, like many of the people who took part in London's biggest protests since the Iraq war.
The movement to remain in the EU got a big boost in visibility earlier in the week when an online petition calling for revoking Article 50, the law that outlines how countries can exit the EU, gained so many signatures (now at 4.4 million) that it crashed the government's petition website.
To say the Brexit process has been a disaster is putting it mildly, as can be seen by the fact that Prime Minister May is the target of both aforementioned protests that take opposing sides. It's reflective of the infighting that's taken place in Parliament, leaving that body of government in a deadlock with no plan in place for an exit.
Despite Saturday's enormous protest, odds of a second referendum are still long thanks to the hurdles that need to be cleared -- including approval from that deadlocked Parliament, a decision on what, exactly, the referendum would be a vote on, and negotiating a timetable on the vote.
For now, it's a wait-and-see situation for everyone. The EU has given May until April 12 to get a deal passed by Parliament.
Failure to get a deal done will mean either a no-deal Brexit or May will have to propose yet another alternative before that deadline. And, with that, yet another journey into the unknown for the UK.
