Anti-Brexit protests broke out on the streets of London after a petition for a second EU referendum attracted 1.5 million signatures within a day, DailyMail reports.
Most of the signatures in the petition came from from place with high number of student population such as North London, Cambridge and Oxford. More than 3,000 of David Cameron‘s (who announced that he will leave office in October) constituents also signed the petition.
The parliament will consider a petition for a debate after it attracts 100,000 or more signatures, and the government will respond to a petition with 10,000 or more signatures.
The petitioners are calling for another referendum, saying that the “Leave” camp won with less than 60% of the votes and was based on a turnout of less than 75 per cent.
