The rejection of the withdrawal agreement by members of parliament raised the possibility of a second referendum, a longer Brexit extension, or a so-called “hard” Brexit.

Protestors blocked Westminster streets, carrying signs that said “Leave Means Leave” and “Brexit Now.”

The protest came as Nigel Farage’s 270-mile-long Leave Means Leave procession, which began in Sunderland two weeks ago, arrived at Parliament Square. Farage is the former head of the pro-Brexit UKIP party.

Earlier in the day, traffic came to a standstill around Parliament Square as demonstrators marched and chanted carrying pro-Brexit signs. They were flanked by police and followed by police trucks as a helicopter hovered overhead.
