LONDON — Thousands of demonstrators have marched through central London in a loud and colourful protest against last week’s vote to leave the European Union, a result that has plunged Britain into political chaos and which most people in the capital rejected.

Most protestors were young adults, and many were draped in EU flags while others waved banners bearing slogans like “I’m with EU” or simply “Wrexit”.

They chanted “What do we want to do? Stay in the EU,” as they marched towards the Westminster political district to a soundtrack of songs like Rick Astley’s 1987 hit Never Gonna Give You Up and Whitney Houston’s I Will always Love You.

“I was genuinely stunned on the morning after the vote,” said one protester, Nathaniel Samson, 25, from Hertfordshire north of London.

“I feel deeply uncertain about my future.”

Another, Italian Pamela Zoni, 34, who has lived in Britain for six years, said she was very upset by the result and having second thoughts about taking British citizenship.

“I would like a second referendum,” she said.
