On Saturday (July 2), an estimated 30,000 protesters marched in London against the result of June’s Brexit referendum decision, which will see Britain withdraw from the EU. The ‘March For Europe’ saw pro-EU campaigners chant “We are the 48%” in reference to the percentage of voters that opted for Remain.
Many marchers crafted homemade signs with some bearing the slogan of ‘Bremain’ and ‘We Love EU’, but others were a little more, shall we say, creative. Social media was flooded with images of placards which married music and the desire to show Europe some love, mixing wordplay with the demonstrators’ defiant message. Here are the pick of the bunch.
There was a reference to Beyonce’s ‘Hold Up’
And to Chicago’s ‘If You Leave Me Now’
This Remainer showed love via the medium of The Wannadies
Others took heed from Adele, Whitney Houston, the Jackson 5 and Jay Z
Even Randy Newman’s Toy Story tune got a shout out
A niche but effective point about the Spice Girls
Some were pretty obvious, but still ace
Ultimately though, we all feel like this sign right now
