Thousands of Brexit opponents gathered in central London on Saturday calling for Britain to remain part of the European Union.
The crowds planned to converge on Parliament Square as legislators voted on Brexit departure plans put forth by Conservative British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Many carried signs calling for a halt to the Brexit process that started with a 2016 referendum in which British voters narrowly backed taking Britain out of the 28-nation bloc.
Earlier in the week, Johnson reached an agreement with the European Union on a new Withdrawal Agreement ahead of Britain's scheduled departure from the bloc on October 31
