Hundreds of thousands in the streets – see photos

Around 80 #StopTheCoup protests took place around the country.

31st August 2019

Around 80 #StopTheCoup rallies and demonstrations took place today across the UK, as part of a nationwide wave of protest coordinated by Another Europe is Possible.

In London alone, an estimated 100.000 people mobilised within 48 hours and blocked Whitehall, Trafalgar Square, Waterloo, Westminster Bridge and Piccadilli Circus. As well as thousands-strong demos in many major cities including Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield and Newcastle, protests also happened in places such as Stroud, Clitheroe, Kirkwall and Colwyn Bay.

This is not the end – it’s just the beginning. From Monday September 2, daily protests have been called at 5:30 pm. Join and share the Facebook event here. For more info, and to set up an event, visit https://www.stopthecoup.org.uk/ or email info@anothereurope.org.

All of this costs money so please donate to our fundraiser here to keep us going!
