We might not have the best weather for it, but there is still a good turnout for @Rally4OurRights this afternoon.
Crowds outside the Home Office
Love this placard
Outside @EPinUK with the inimitable @snb19692
Permission problems with the church steps, so we are heading across the road to @EPinUK AKA Europe House.
Faux BoJo
"Get your Johnson out of democracy".
@snb19692 never one to why away from the cameras...
Dennis McShane taking about how Brexit won't be over in 31st October whatever happens.
The new edition of his book Brexiternity makes this clear.
The @LibDems #bollocksToBrexit minister @thomasbrake speaking in English, French and Portuguese about why Europe has long been an important part of his life.
The rain is setting in now & I'm outside 55 Tufton Street (boo... hiss's...)
Go away rain (and Brexit)...
Former director of Anti-Slavery International, @the_mcquade.

Final speaker of the day outside 55 Tufton Street.
@CatherineWest1, MP for Hornsey & Wood Green.
She's talking about the importance of getting people registered to vote. The most disadvantaged are often the most likely to not be in the register.
#Rally4OurRights #PeoplesVote
Double sided placard.
I'm not sure which side is scarier...
Author and anti-Brexit campaigner @carolJhedges on her efforts to obtain a German passport and her anger at statements from the British government and British press about Remainers and non-British EU nationals.
She goes on to talk about her parents murdered at Auschwitz and why we must not be silent about the terminal of hard earned rights.
The kind of car you only see randomly driving down a side street if you are in central London.
Shame it is so noisy even driving slowly that it formed out the speakers...
Surprising hoots of support from a bin lottery passing down Tufton Street.

Back outside @EPinUK it's still raining, but that hasn't dampened spirits.
They've got a point: "Real leaders don't remove rights"
#Rally4OurRights #HumanRights
"hands off or rights"
Outside the Home Office again.
@pimlicat from @BestForBritain is giving a cracking speech.
Lots of people here still, undeterred by the inclement weather.
A few more of the speakers from earlier. All introduced by the indefatigable @GuitarMoog who many know from Twitter or the @CakeWatchCast podcast.
Overall a great afternoon.
Thanks to all the individuals and groups who helped organise @Rally4OurRights.
It was very different to many of the other events, but that was always the intention.
The focus was on just one aspect of Brexit, but it's a very important one.
And thank you to everyone who turned up to support the event on a rather damp October afternoon.
It's easy to be a social media warrior sat at home with a cup of tea when the weather gets bad.
We are not just summer soldiers or sunshine patriots.
If you want to read a far more coherent write up of the event than my burblings, take a gander at this thread.
