Protest held in London against Northern Ireland Protocol

Protesters took to London’s streets Sunday against the Northern Ireland Protocol, which is part of the Brexit agreement and keeps Northern Ireland in the Customs Union with the EU.

People gathered in Trafalgar Square and marched to the Prime Ministry and Parliament, demanding the cancellation of the protocol, which they argued threatened the union of the UK.

They carried banners with various slogans, including "Stop the Northern Ireland Protocol,” “United we stand, divided we fall” and “One crown, one nation, one United Kingdom."

After laying a wreath at the World War I Memorial, they handed a letter to the Prime Minister's Office with their demands.

One of the demonstrators told Anadolu Agency that they wanted to show their support for maintaining the union of the UK with the protest, stressing that the UK is made up of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The demonstrator noted that all four are under the jurisdiction of the UK, adding Northern Ireland deserves the same treatment, the same rights and the same international treaties and Europe should listen to this and act accordingly.
