Nearly 700,000 protesters gathered in London's Parliament square seeking a referendum on Brexit, reports the BBC.

Why it matters: A referendum has already been ruled out by Prime Minister Theresa May, per the BBC. If she were to reverse her decision a referendum would likely generate a majority vote to remain in the EU: The UK’s demographics are moving in a pro-EU direction, and some voters have changed their minds, writes Peter Kellner for Axios. Participants of the "People's Vote" march held the largest gathering of its kind as Britain continues to grapple with negotiations to leave the European Union.

The Trump administration’s full-steam-ahead push to fully reopen schools this fall is on a collision course with the U.S.' skyrocketing coronavirus caseload and its decades-long neglect of public education.

Why it matters: Getting kids back to school is of paramount importance for children and families, especially low-income ones. But the administration isn’t doing much to make this safer or more feasible.

As the coronavirus poses risks and concerns for the youngest and oldest Americans, the generations in the middle are buckling under the increasing strain of having to take care of both.

Why it matters: People that make up the so-called sandwich generations are typically in their 30s, 40s and 50s, and in their prime working years. The increasing family and financial pressures on these workers means complications for employers, too.
