The Unite for Europe March is going ahead as planned!
This is a statement from Britain for Europe…
“As you will already have heard, the march organisers have confirmed with the police that it can and will go ahead. Britain for Europe remains committed to the march because we believe the importance of continuing with planned activities following the vicious attack in Westminster and the commitment of so many people to the march outweighs other considerations. We have asked the organisers to observe a one minute silence in memory of those who lost their lives, and all those who have suffered injuries both physical and psychological.”
The email issued by European Movement yesterday was poorly worded, as it may have insinuated that the march was cancelled, this was never the case. They have since clarified with a further email.
We would encourage all of our members to join in with the minutes silence. Another idea that has gained popularity on social media is to bring a flower to lay down in remembrance of the events of earlier in the week. Whilst there are a lot of merits to this idea, please do restrict it to one flower and not bunches. The practicalities of this happening on a large march remain to be seen.
There are a few coach tickets still available departing from Frome Station at 7:30 am.
We know its short notice, but if you would like to join us please email us a matter of urgency.
We have a pre-march meeting point in London, at Wellington Arch in the middle of the Hyde Park Corner junction, for those on our coach and those travelling by other means to meet up.
The nearest tube station to our meeting point at Wellington Arch is Hyde Park Corner.
Departure time for the coach from London will be 6:00 pm.
The departure point will be decided by the coach driver on the day depending on the conditions.
We look forward to seeing you on the march.
