EU supporters parade through London in 'March for Europe'

Thousands of European Union supporters are singing, dancing and marching through the streets of London to protest the United Kingdom's vote to leave the EU.

Saturday's 2-mile (3-kilometer) "March for Europe" from Hyde Park to Parliament was organized on social media. Many of the marchers say they expect lawmakers to block any moves to leave the 28-nation bloc, a move backed by 52 percent of voters in the June 23 referendum.

One organizer, comedian Mark Thomas, says British lawmakers should not legislate for an exit based on a result driven by anti-EU campaigners' exaggerations and distortions on immigration and EU spending.

Thomas said: "We would accept the result of the referendum if it was fought on a level playing field. But it was full of misinformation."
