Hanley Stop The Coup 29 August 2019
Staffs4Europe demonstrate at Hanley Town Hall against the suspension of parliament
On Thursday 29 August with less than 24 hours notice Staffs4Europe.eu organised a protest rally outside Hanley Town Hall in response to the PM’s intention to prorogue Parliament.
Making full use of social media with the help of our friends on the Stoke4Europe Facebook page, about 50 people (and Mia the beagle) came together and chanted Stop The Coup, Stop Boris and Bollocks to Brexit.
It was more subdued than other rallies that took place this weekend and although there were a couple of hecklers we thought the arrival of 3 police cars was a bit over the top
We did leave our mark though…
