Since the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union in the 2016 referendum, a number of demonstrations have taken place and organisations formed whose goal has been to oppose, reverse or otherwise impede that decision.
The second March for Europe took place in London on 3 September 2016 and was attended by thousands of people. It was one of a number of events to take place on the day, including rallies in Edinburgh and Birmingham.
The Unite for Europe march, which coincided with the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, was held in London on 25 March 2017, and was attended by tens of thousands of people.
The People's March for Europe took place in London on 9 September 2017. The event began with a march at 11am and was follwed by speakers in Parliament Square at 1:30pm. The event, which was attended by thousands of people, was part of a series of protests dubbed "the Autumn of discontent".. The People's March Ltd came into being in the summer of 2017, to help ensure that a march planned for 9 September in London 2017 went ahead. Over 50,000 people took to the streets under the banner "Unite, Rethink, Reject Brexit" marching from Hyde Park to Parliament Square followed by a rally with speakers from the remain movement and from across the political spectrum and was covered on mainstream media, even for a few seconds on the BBC news on the day at 6pm. The company remains in place for possible participation in future Pro EU campaign events.
The StopBrexit Manchester march was held in All Saints Park, Manchester on 1st October 2017, to coincide with the Conservative Party conference.

The StopBrexit Leeds march was held on 24 March 2018 in Leeds. The march assembled at The Headrow in central Leeds at 11am and ended with a rally at The Headrow, with thousands of people reported to have attended.
On 23 June 2018, the second anniversary of the EU referendum, People's Vote organised a march and protest from Trafalgar Square to Parliament Square in Central London. Speakers included Liberal Democrats leader Vince Cable, Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas, Labour's David Lammy and the Conservative's Anna Soubry. The organisers said that at least 100,000 people attended the march. A smaller pro-Brexit march was held in London on the same date.
The People's Vote march was not designed to reverse the result of the referendum, but to hold a public vote on the final terms of the UK's EU exit deal. The organisers said Brexit was "not a done deal" and Cable said "Brexit is not inevitable. Brexit can be stopped." The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was criticised for not attending the march.
Remain campaigners crowdfunded to give out EU flags at the last night of The Proms. In 2016, £1,175 was raised on Crowdfunder; in 2017, £4,218 was raised, and 2,500 flags were given out on the night. In 2018, £3,132 was raised on Crowdfunder, to be given out in September.
