Following the UK government’s announcement of plans to prorogue (suspend) the UK Parliament, there was an impromptu march in Edinburgh as people took to the streets to express their anger.
This placard describes how I feel.
The People’s Vote campaign held a rally in Edinburgh during the Festival Fringe in August 2019.

I realised I hadn’t posted the pictures I took on the People’s Vote March in London last month. I didn’t take many photographs, partly because I had seen most of the placards and slogans before on previous anti-Brexit, pro-EU demos. I did take these, though. The march attracted over 100,000 people and, contrary to one placard (and previous experience) featured across BBC News media.
