Maidstone Liberal Democrats March for Europe


Last week, members of Maidstone Liberal Democrats marched in London for an open, tolerant and united Britain.

Nearly a thousand Liberal Democrat members gathered at Marble Arch to hear passionate speeches from Party President, Sal Brinton as well as our MEP for the South East of England, Catherine Bearder, and House of Lords Europe spokesperson, Baroness Sarah Ludford.

The Liberal Democrats were the only national political party with any organised presence at the march, and numbered about a third of the total marchers on the the day - indeed, there were so many of us we received our own police escort!

Armed with placards and balloons, and led from the front by Sal Brinton, Catherine Bearder, and Sarah Ludford, the march wound its way down Piccadilly through Trafalgar Square before ending at Parliament Square.

Along the route, numerous Lib Dem leaflets were handed out to members of the watching public and all our team were cheered along the route to chants of of "We love you EU" and "We don't want Brexit".

Arriving in Parliament Square, the group heard further speeches including from our very own Catherine Bearder (which you can watch here). 

It was a fantastic march - and demonstrates the widespread strength of belief that the UK should remain an open, tolerant and united nation at the heart of Europe.

The Liberal Democrats also proved once again that we are the only real voice of opposition to the Conservative Brexit Government.
