Tens of thousands march in London to protest Brexit

Tens of thousands of protesters gathered in London Saturday to express their displeasure over Britain's recent exit from the European Union. With signs reading "Wrexit" and "I'm with EU," the marchers chanted, "What do we want to do? Stay in the EU!" as they walked toward Parliament.

Some 60 percent of England's capital city voted to remain in the EU, but across the United Kingdom, the "leave" vote triumphed with 52 percent support.

Rally organizer Kieran MacDermott said he believes "we can prevent Brexit by refusing to accept the referendum as the final say," and that the Brexit decision should be determined by Parliament instead of the voters.
