Tens of thousands of people Saturday in London the street, merged with a demonstration against the planned British withdrawal from the European Union. The demonstration comes two days before a first vote in the house of Commons about a uittredingswet.

Co-sponsored by pop musician and activist Bob Geldof supported mars carried out by the centre of the metropolis to the parliament in Westminster.

The conservative government of prime minister Theresa May wants on the basis of the uittredingswet to their own discretion, more than twelve thousand European directives record in the Uk code. Opponents speak of an infringement on the separation of powers.

The position of the premier is shaky. She left in June early elections, but came in weaker than where they themselves had expected. The scheidingsonderhandelingen with the European Union expired problems, what uncertainty in the British population about the future outside of the European partnership grows.
