The Take Back Parliament protest in London today demanded “Fair Votes Now” as around 1,000 people marched from Parliament Square to the scene of the Liberal Democrat federal executive committee meeting in Smith Square.
Over 30,000 people have now signed the online petition which says:
“This Parliament does not represent us. We demand fair votes now. There must never again be an election under this broken system.”
Last night, 38 Degrees, the people pwered campaigning movement, coordinated 150,000 emails to Lib Dem MPs and grandees in four hours demanding “no PR, no deal”.

As you’re here, we have something to ask you. What we do here to deliver real news is more important than ever. But there’s a problem: we need readers like you to chip in to help us survive. We deliver progressive, independent media, that challenges the right’s hateful rhetoric. Together we can find the stories that get lost.
We’re not bankrolled by billionaire donors, but rely on readers chipping in whatever they can afford to protect our independence. What we do isn’t free, and we run on a shoestring. Can you help by chipping in as little as £1 a week to help us survive? Whatever you can donate, we’re so grateful - and we will ensure your money goes as far as possible to deliver hard-hitting news.
