British people from as far as field as Tuscany, Verona, Sardinia, Umbria and Abruzzo travelled to Rome on March 25 to show their solidarity with Europe and opposition to Brexit.

The March for Europe paralleled similar events in capital cities all over the continent, including London, and was organised to commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome.

The British presence in Rome was coordinated by British in Italy and we were delighted by the large turn-out. Marchers of many other nationalities were present and it was heartening to see how welcoming and supportive they are of our position.

Our main aims were to raise awareness of the difficult position that British citizens in Europe face, and to show our support for Europe.

We certainly feel that with such a high profile turn out we achieved just that.
