The protesters, who collected signatures for apetition, said they wanted to defend British democracy following Prime MinisterBoris Johnson's order to suspend parliament for five weeks before Britain isdue to leave the EU on Oct. 31.

"This utter chaos has brought us together insolidarity to defend British democracy," the letter added.
