London Protest: As Thousands Of Corbyn-Backed Activists Bring Chaos To The Streets In Plan To Cripple 32 Cities In Fury Over Boris Johnson's Suspension of Parliament

Demonstrators rallied on Saturday in cities across Britain against Prime Minister Boris Johnson's controversial move to suspend parliament weeks before Brexit (pictured, protesters in London today)
Campaigners have started to gather in cities including London and Newcastle, with further protests planned in locations including Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow. The first few protesters gathered in London at around 11.30am, following a rallying call from Jeremy Corbyn who declared activists were 'right to take to the streets' (top, in London). 

And then later hundreds occupied areas of Newcastle (bottom-left) and York (bottom-right) for the 'stop the coup' protests organised by Anti-Brexit campaign group Another Europe Is Possible. Left-wing group Momentum is calling on its members to 'occupy bridges and blockade roads' in conjunction with unrest on the streets - with hundreds already campaigning outside Downing Street in Whitehall, central London. 


The campaigners have donned European garb and are waving placards around reading 'clowning street' and 'defend democracy: resist the parliament shutdown' as they join in the nationwide protests. The Shadow Home Secretary emerged on the street of London at midday, joining protesters outside Downing Street.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn emerged in Glasgow's George Square at around 3pm where he addressed protesters - having spent the morning attending an OAP centre in Scotland.  

He said: 'I'm proud to be here with all of you supporting that, to say to Boris Johnson no way, it's our Parliament.


'No way do you take us out without a deal - we will stop you and give the people their rights and their say to determine their future.'
