This weekend, on the 7th of October 2018, thousands of dogs will be marching through central London to parliament to protest Brexit. It will be the biggest 'pawlitical' march ever.

How and why?

The Wooferendum was started by Daniel Elkan. The dogs are barking on behalf of the millions of people in the UK who think that Brexit is a huge mistake.

According to the organisers, leaving the EU will cause the suspension of the EU Pet Passport scheme (a programme that allows more than 250,000 animals to travel overseas with their owners). The replacement of the EU's Pet Passport would take months to negotiate, meaning the animals would be unable to travel across borders.

There could also be a shortage in skilled vets and vet nurses from the EU, and a rising in costs for animal health and pet food products.

When is it taking place?

The march will be on the 7th of October 2018. Everyone is gathering together at 12pm at Waterloo Place in central London. They will then march all the way to Parliament square.
