The purpose of the marchers is the parliament building, where the fate of the Brexit agreement is being decided. People hope to convince parliament that the country needs a new referendum to find out whether the UK should continue its attempts to leave the European Union.

On March 20, British Prime Minister Theresa May wrote a letter to President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, asking Brexit to be delayed until June 30, 2019.

On March 14, the House of Commons of the UK Parliament did not approve a repeated referendum on the issue of the country's withdrawal from the EU.

The EU summit participants declared their readiness to approve the postponement of the UK exit date from March 29 to May 22.

We recall the exit of the UK from the EU was scheduled for March 29, 2019. It was determined by a referendum in June 2016, in which 51.89% of Britons supported the country's withdrawal from the EU in order to regain control over its own funds, laws, borders and the internal market.
