March 18, 2019, Valencia, Spain. Press Dispensary. On Saturday 23 March, the ‘Put it to the People’ march will take over
central London. It is expected to be the largest protest march in British
history. An unprecedented number of members of anti-Brexit group, Bremain in
Spain ( ( ), will be flying to London to march
in support of the campaign to back a People’s Vote on Brexit.

John Moffett, vice chair of Bremain in Spain, says: “This will be one of the
most important marches ever, no matter what happens this week in the
Commons. If Theresa May is allowed to have three meaningful votes when
nothing has changed with her proposed deal, then we must demonstrate our
commitment to a People’s Vote. In contrast, a lot has changed re public
sentiment since 2016.”

Sue Wilson, chair of Bremain in Spain, says: “We've supported the campaign
for another referendum from the start, and we've actively campaigned to give
the British public another say in this debate. The Brexit that was sold was
a lie, a fantasy, a pipe-dream. The British public deserves a chance to
think again."

"The June 2016 referendum result started a Brexit nightmare for UK citizens
living in the EU and EU citizens living in the UK. Since then, we've been
working together to make our voices heard. We've been side-lined and
silenced for too long. On Saturday, we'll be loud and proud and demanding
another referendum. Although most of us couldn't vote on our own futures in
June 2016, and it's unlikely that we'll be able to vote in the next
referendum, we wholeheartedly support a #PeoplesVote."

Wilson concludes: "The public must be able to make an informed decision
based on the facts, not the fantasy. We must establish if Brexit really is
the ‘will of the people’ before making this momentous decision. It’s the
only way forward that can start to heal the divisions created by Brexit. If
Theresa May can keep asking parliament the same question, how can she deny
the public a second chance? As our new banner says: we want a voice, a vote
and a final say, because Brexit is bonkers!”

Over 100 Bremain in Spain members are expected to attend the 'Put it to the
People' event and will march alongside other citizens’ rights groups
including: In Limbo Project, Brexpats-Hear our voice and Españoles de Reino
Unido, which represents Spanish citizens living in the UK.
