United Kingdom: petition collects more than 1.5 million signatures for second referendum

About two dozen students demonstrated Saturday outside the British Parliament against the output of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

The protest coincides with a "petition" that calls for holding a second referendum and has already collected more than 1.5 million signatures.

The leader of the main opposition party, Jeremy Corbyn, rejected calls for their resignation. CORBYN was accused of not being able to convince thousands of labor voters who would have voted in the direction of the exit.

"Our policies on trade, the economy and migration will have to change in the light of the referendum and this sh ould not be left to people like Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage or Michael Gove. The Labour Party will fight to ensure that our agenda is present in the negotiations on the European Union's output, including the ability to set the economy ", said the leader of the opposition.

In Scotland, the results of the referendum are being followed with particular interest. The Scottish leader, Nicola Sturgeon, said the Government will launch an initiative to protect the country's place in the European Union.

"We all agree that it is necessary to start as soon as possible discussions with the European institutions and other Member States in order to protect Scotland's place in the European Union" Sturgeon.

In the referendum of the day 23, 6 2% of Scots voted to stay in the European Union. The Scottish leader claims that a new referendum about the permanence of the country in the United Kingdom is now highly likely.
