UK: ‘No Borders! No Boris!’ – Anti-Brexit protesters rally outside Downing Street

United Kingdom, London
June 24, 2016 at 22:06 GMT +00:00 · Published

Scores of people marched outside Downing Street in London on Friday to protest against the result of the EU referendum.

Protesters held banners reading “No borders! No Boris!” and chanted “You’ve had your referendum, now give us our election!” One protester spoke of how the referendum result would affect young people in particular:

"I was really upset because obviously it makes a massive difference to our future and I think that's what made me so sad about it. Because we have to live with this for the rest of our lives and it's a long life and we're trying to start careers and make careers and make things happen and this decision has completely thrown everything in the air."

Another protester said that she thought that leaving the EU would have the worst effect on the people who voted Remain.

On Friday morning the Electoral Commission reported that the Leave campaign clinched a win, with some 52 percent of the electorate voting for Brexit from an estimated 72 percent voter turnout. London and Scotland polled predominantly for remain, but every English region outside the capital voted in a majority to leave the EU.

Shortly after the official results were announced British Prime Minister David Cameron stated that he would resign as the country's leader before the autumn during an address from Downing Street.
