My 2 children ... have been badly hit by the loss of Freedom of Movement and I am glad we tried so hard to save the day.
I even organised a demo myself – In Barcelona outside the British Consulate to protest the proroguing of Parliament, which about 100 people turned up to!
I am in awe of those who regularly went to the protest and while they did not reach the outcome they may have desired, their fight did not go unnoticed.
The Police, who were always excellent with us, let us through & we marched, led by Steve Bray, to Downing Street playing our instruments & singing our songs.
It was having Steve and the group from SODEM there day after day as they were the country’s Remain beacon who we deeply respected and coalesced around.
My favourite memory is being able to meet so many like-minded people from all over the country and from abroad. I loved talking to passing tourists (usually Americans) who wanted to understand the politics.
My favourite memory is of Steve Bray circumventing the scaffolding issue by raising the placards on 20 foot poles.
I came because I wanted to stand up and be counted. Also, as a photographer I wanted to record something of these historical events.
My late mother always told me that doing nothing about injustice is as bad as supporting it.
I studied politics at university but thought my marching days were behind me. The vote to leave the EU has returned me to active politics...
