LONDON - Thousands of demonstrators gathered in central London on Saturday to march in protest against last week's vote to leave the European Union, a result that has plunged Britain into political chaos and which most people in the capital rejected.
Most protestors were young adults, and many were draped in EU flags while others waved banners proclaiming slogans like "I'm with EU" or simply "Wrexit."They chanted "what do we want to do? Stay in the EU," as they set off for the Westminster political district.
The vote to leave has prompted a battle within the ruling Conservative party to succeed Prime Minister David Cameron who said he would resign after the result.
The main opposition Labour Party has also turned on itself, with most of its lawmakers in parliament having voted to withdraw support for party leader Jeremy Corbyn after what they saw as his lackluster contribution to the referendum campaign.
