A group of British residents on the Costa del Sol are organising an anti-Brexit demonstration to show their opposition to the UK leaving the EU.

The event, Demonstration Against Brexit - Protect Our Rights, will take place on Sunday, 22 September. It will start in Malaga's Plaza de la Constitución at 11am before making its way down Calle Larios to Plaza de la Marina, where it is expected to finish at about 1.45pm. The demonstration follows a number of similar events which have been held in different parts of Spain as well as other EU countries in recent weeks.

One of the organisers, Judy Farrar, told SUR in English that the aim of the demonstration is to "both increase awareness of the situation and show our support for those nationals of our host country in the UK who, like us, may face losing their homes or jobs". She added, "Very many people are affected by the situation and have serious concerns about the future. From the responses we've had so far we're expecting a good turnout."
