Chanting and waving the gold stars of the European Union flag, tens of thousands of protesters marched through Manchester on Sunday (October 1) to the ruling Conservative Party’s annual conference todemand that Britain stay in the European Union.

Protesters in the northern English city called on Prime Minister Theresa May to embrace closer ties with Europe, while a separate demonstration demanded that May go now.

At the front of the demonstration, a lorry carried a multi-headed giant body with the faces of May and three leading Brexit campaigners: Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson; Environment Secretary Michael Gove and Brexit Secretary David Davis.

“Brexit is a monstrosity,” it said on the chest. “Let’s Stop It!”

May will try to stamp her authority on her party and the cabinet during the four-day conference, having lost her parliamentary majority with a botched election gamble in June.

The country voted 52-48 percent in a referendum last year to leave the EU, but negotiations with Brussels have progressed slowly and the country remains divided over the outcome.

Britain’s opposition Labour Party enjoyed a bullish conference last week in Brighton and the party is closing the gap in the polls, helped by the support of young voters.
