London, 03/09/2016. Today, thousands people marched peacefully from Park Lane to Parliament Square to protest against the EU Referendum result (Turnout 72.2%: 51,9% to leave the EU, 17,410,742 Votes, versus 48,1% to remain in the EU, 16,141,241 Votes) and to show that Great Britain is still part of Europe. Protestors of all ages were present in significant numbers representing all the generations of the British population. The aim of the protest was to call the Conservative Government, lead by Theresa May, not to invoke the Article 50 which will quickly activate the exit of Great Britain from the EU, also know as Brexit. When the march arrived outside Down Street a small group of "Brexit activists" were holding a counter demo pro-Leave the EU. In the meantime, a man with a bandana covering his face stole Eddie Izzard pink beret. Police officers promptly arrested the protester and recover Mr Izzard hat. From the organiser Facebook page: <<On Saturday 3rd September we are coming together in great numbers to #marchforeurope. A creative show of passion will take place with hundreds of thousands of people protesting in multiple cities across the country, and with London's demonstration congregating outside the Houses of Parliament. Two days later Parliament will reconvene to debate Britain's future with Europe, and we want to make our message heard - Britain is better in Europe […]>>. Similar demonstrations were held in Cardiff, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Bristol, Oxford, Cambridge.<br />
