Given Parliament is sitting that day to debate Brexit it seems doubly relevant to be there.
I'm hoping to. Will be my first protest.
Nah, there's Rugby on telly........
Yes. Never been on a demo of any sort ever in my 54 years, but I can't sit this one out.
Due to be working that day at the moment, hoping to get it off to attend. Like some previous posters never been on a demo/march/protest before but feel its more important then ever now.
I've been to almost all the anti-Brexit marches. I am encouraged that there are many people who haven't been before want to go to this one. Could be a record-breaking turnout.
Yep, I'll be there. I'll be the one waving a big EU flag around.
I've been on all the big marches so far. The atmosphere has been fantastic, very friendly. And so far the weather has been excellent for each one, so fingers crossed!
Yes, 4 of us going down for the day. Second time this year - went in March. That was our first since an anti-apartheid protest when students.
I'm more or less decided I'll go down. The idea of a million or so people marching through London while Parliament debates has a certain drama to it and when I look back in ten years time on Brexit I don't want to have a nagging doubt that maybe I could have done more.

Exactly, I've been on numerous marches and achieved, FA.
Some of the Pro-Palestinan marches don't even get on the news or in the papers, even when there are 200,000+ people there.
But it's something tangible and in the case of Palestinian solidarity, if one Palestinian realises they aren't alone in the world, then hopefully that helps. Not sure how that relates to a Brexit march but I'll be there if I can, I been to all the others, it would be daft not to really.
Utterly mindboggling news from Labour ...
Is it? I didn't realise that Corbyn's views on brexit were a mystery to anyone paying any attention.
> Utterly mindboggling news from Labour ...
I don't see how he couldn't attend Parliament on that day. Probably something he had arranged previously.
It's nothing to do with his views being a mystery, it's to do with him absenting himself and causing a distraction on one of the most important days there's been political history in my lifetime.
PS. As I've said before, he might just as well be Boris's deputy PM, he's helping him so much.
Yeah, my point exactly, maybe I was being a little too subtle.
I'll be there.
