As of today, 5 people are thought to have lost their lives with over 40 people being seriously injured including the attacker. The attack has been likened to similar terrorist attacks in Europe in the past, this said, however, the police aren’t releasing any further information regarding the attack until further inquiries have been made.
The 48 And Beyond would like to offer our heartfelt wishes to all those involved in the incident in London today and we are with you in spirit.
The news comes at an unfortunate time as, this Saturday, thousands of people are expected to march through London to protest Brexit.
The March is set to start at 11:00 am on Saturday morning, spanning 1 mile across central London and occupying most of Parliament square.
With the recent developments in London, many Remainers are worried that the event may have to be postponed or may be canceled altogether.
The march does appear, however, to be going ahead.
A spokesperson from the event organisers, Unite for Europe said:
Unite for Europe are deeply saddened by today’s events. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families.
Understandably we are receiving many questions regarding the march on Saturday.
The march and rally will go ahead. We have contingency plans in place should the route need to change.
Regarding concerns of safety, the police will be on high alert for some time and we are cooperating fully with the authorities to reduce any possible risks.
At times like these, we should not be afraid to show the world that peace and unity will always prevail. Our strength is our courage to make our collective voice heard. This is more important than ever. This march is our way of showing our support for these principles and the European project.
Unite for Europe team”
