On Saturday 20 October, the The People’s Vote March for the Future took place in London, with an attendance of around 700,000, 600,000 more than anticipated.
Supporters marched for a final say on parliament’s Brexit deal.
Last week saw members of the SU speak out in support of the march, hosting a banner making session last week, along with covering the cost of transport for a coach to London on the day.
Campaigns and Democracy Officer, Sophie Atherton, appealed to students via her SU blog to ‘ensure that [our] voices are heard on the final decision for Brexit.’
The Brexit deal is anticipated to affect students in a number of ways, with potential economic and social instability meaning some may face problems with studying and travelling.
