LONDON, June 25. /TASS/. Supporters of the European integration took to the streets on Saturday protesting against the United Kingdom’s leaving the European Union after the historic referendum.
Thousands of protesters called on the authorities to reconsider the results of Thursday’s vote.
The demonstrators broke out on the streets of London holding the EU flags and posters with slogans in support of the country’s membership in the 28-member bloc. The protests were attended by Britons and citizens of other EU countries.
More than 2.2 million people have signed an online petition calling on the British MPs to consider the possibility of holding a new referendum on the UK’s membership in the EU. The lawmakers can consider the call during the next parliamentary session.
The referendum in the UK on Thursday brought victory to the ‘leave’ camp, which received 51.9% of votes. The number of those who voted against Brexit was 48.1%
The results of the plebiscite are no legally binding and can be reviewed by parliament, which may agree or disagree with the popular opinion. Also, the authorities have an opportunity to organize a new referendum.
However, Prime Minister David Cameron said on Friday the government will honor the wish of the British people who opted for a withdrawal from the EU.
