Londoners inspired by yellow vest call for new election in UK
Thousands of protesters gathered in London on Saturday to protest the British government, calling for an end to austerity measures and a new general election in light of the impending departure of Britain from the European Union. Wearing yellow vests with slogans such as "Britain is Broken" written on the back, the demonstrators marched in London to demand that politicians pay attention to their plight rather than being endlessly diverted by the spectacle surrounding Britain's departure from the European Union.
Thousands of demonstrators wearing yellow vests took to the streets of London on Saturday, in the largest protest yet in Britain copying the "yellow vest" protests rocking France.
Politicians and union leaders from across the country came to attend The People's Assembly Against Austerity, which drew 5,000 to 10,000 demonstrators, according to the organizers' initial estimates.
