SOT, John Smart, Protester: "I’m here today to tell Jeremy Corbyn and to tell the Labour Party that it's in the interest of British people to oppose Brexit, to make sure we stay as a good member of the European Union. It's important for our prosperity and for our futures."

SOT, John Smart, Protester: "We're supporting a people's vote, they are in favour of a people's vote, but we'd like them to campaign fully for a people's vote, to support peoples vote, to campaign for remain when the people's vote happens."

SOT, Jose, Protester: "Well, I think the Labour Party needs to actually get their game together, and I don't really know. Probably to listen to the people, that is basically what we are begging here. Just listen to the people and give another change and stop Brexit once and for all."

SOT, Graham Simpson, Protester: "I don’t think it will stand up the scrutiny of an election campaign [Labour’s current Brexit policy], so I think they're going to be asked continually do you support remain or leave. And I think eventually they've got to come down on one side or another, and obviously we think it should be remain."

SCRIPT
Anti-Brexit demonstrators took the streets of Brighton ahead of the Labour Party conference, on Saturday, to voice their support for the 'People’s Vote' campaign, which calls for a second Brexit referendum to be held.
"I’m here today to tell Jeremy Corbyn and to tell the Labour Party that it's in the interest of British people to oppose Brexit, to make sure we stay as a good member of the European Union. It's important for our prosperity and for our futures," John Smart, a protester said.
Demonstrators were seen holding 'People’s Vote' banners and European Union flags while marching along Brighton promenade and passing by the Royal Pavilion.
The Labour Party conference kicked off on Saturday and is scheduled to last until Wednesday where Labour leaders, union delegates and party members will be discussing policy and key issues including Brexit.
