Steve joins march against the suspension of Parliament

 In EU, News

Steve Reed this weekend joined thousands of others on the march against the prorogation of Parliament by Boris Johnson.

Steve said:

We marched today to defend our democracy against Boris Johnson’s attempt to silence Parliament. At this crucial time we need more democracy and debate in Parliament, not a closure of what we have.

I will do all that I can to prevent a catastrophic no deal Brexit, that would damage so many people in our community.

Boris Johnson does not have a majority in Parliament or the country to support what he is trying to do and must stop what he is doing and respect the people of this country

March against the prorogation of Parliament

Boris Johnson wants to close down democracy to force through a no-deal Brexit no-one voted for. We won't let him get away with it #StopTheCoup
