About two thousand people crammed into College Green as a march led by Bath for Europe arrived from Queen Square. Flags were flying, banners unfurled and whistles were blowing. Holding the banners were Wera Hobhouse the Bath Lib Dem MP and Julie Girling the Conservative MEP, Clare Moody MEP along with Labour MPs Darren Jones, Thangam Debbonaire. Kerry McCarthy also joined us. Quite a line up.
Molly Scott Cato, our Green MEP, opened the rally and was soon followed by Dr Mike Galsworthy from Scientists for EU (pictured here).

Here the march files its way from the fountains in the city centre and heads to College Green.
The whole event was hosted by Bristol for Europe and held under the auspices of South West for Europe and led by Becky Gilbert.
There were many great speeches including those form three MEPs and four MPs plus others from different walks of life. Many were moved by the testimonies from non-British EU citizens.
