Protesters take to the streets in Westminster on ‘Super Saturday’

The Canary

Thousands of people have called for a second Brexit referendum as MPs vote on Boris Johnson’s withdrawal deal.

Effigies of the Prime Minister and his senior adviser Dominic Cummings were on show during the demonstration, attended by famous faces including Star Trek actor Sir Patrick Stewart.

Meanwhile, pro-Brexit supporters staged a counter-demonstration during a tense day in Parliament.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?

    1. Two things Remainers can never do again. They can never call themselves democrats, even if their efforts to thwart Brexit fail; and they can never complain if the next vote overthrown is their own.

      I think Jeremy has snatched defeat from the jaws of victory…too many will turn away over this…so now we’ll just have to wait for the riots to bring about change.
