Petition update

March with us in October to demand a Final Say on the Brexit deal

Aug 17, 2018 — 

We’re thrilled that more than 600,000 have signed up for our Final Say campaign for the British people to decide on the Brexit deal in a referendum. We plan to present the petition to Downing Street, so please sign if you haven’t already, and please keep sharing the link (change.org/FinalSay). The more signatures, the more likely we are to win this victory, and ensure everyone has the chance to say how they feel, whichever side of the argument they are on.

Many of you have been in contact on Twitter or via the finalsay@independent.co.uk email address with further suggestions, and to ask what else you can do. Today we are delighted to answer that question: we are joining forces with the People’s Vote March for the Future, which takes place in London on Saturday 20 October. We’re hoping to see as many of you as possible at the rally, to make our voices heard and to show the world this is an issue about which we care passionately.

People’s Vote have very similar objectives to us – essentially, we all want a referendum once the final deal is presented. We have all learnt so much in the past two years since the 2016 referendum, and we can all see that the kind of Brexit promised – an easy negotiation leading to a new era with all the advantages of EU membership alongside newfound freedoms and fantastic economic gains – is clearly not going to be matched by the reality. So it is only right and democratic to go back to the British people once the terms of departure are known, to check whether we still want to leave Europe and if so on what terms.

Winning the right to have this final say will not be easy, but it is a right and democratic cause worth the effort. With hundreds of thousands of you behind us already, our voices will be hard for politicians to ignore. Join the march and help us bring the petition to life.

To let us know how many people are likely to attend, please register at www.peoples-vote.uk/march And we would be hugely grateful if you could help People’s Vote fund the staffing, security, leaflets and so on by making a donation at www.peoples-vote.uk/crowdfunder

This is our future and our democracy – now the march gives us the opportunity to show how much we care.
