Nigel Farage and Leave.eu have cancelled their controversial march on the Supreme Court, which was scheduled to take place on December 5th. The demonstration, which would have seen the former UKIP leader joined by the BNP and the EDL in calling for the power to trigger Article 50 to be handed back to Theresa May.

Another Europe is Possible had called a counter-protest to oppose Farage, which thousands had pledged to attend.

But this afternoon, Nigel Farage and Leave.eu announced that they were cancelling the protest, over concerns that it would be “hijacked” by far-right street groups.

A spokesperson for Another Europe is Possible said:
“We are delighted that Nigel Farage has called off his march on the Supreme Court. It is telling that the likes of Leave.eu and Nigel Farage cannot even organise a rally without having it hijacked by fascist street fighters. They are part of a new international movement that wants to attack the basic principles of democracy and equality.”

“The fight is now on to build an alternative to the nightmare future offered by Nigel Farage and Donald Trump. We will soon be releasing our call for a ‘People’s Deal’ which can preserve the progressive elements of EU membership – such as workers’ rights, free movement and environmental protections – while recognising the decision of the British electorate to leave.”

In light of the news Farage would no longer march, Another Europe is Possible has cancelled its planned demonstration in Parliament Square on the 5th December and will instead organise a major indoor rally for supporters in central London in the evening.
