A massive thank you to everyone who gave their time to the rebellion in various ways: to those who gave up their liberty and risk prosecution, to those who gave hours of support in person and in running our back office and those who solved problems behind the scenes before and during.
Thank you to those who spoke to the media or spoke to friends and colleagues to explain why we had to go beyond traditional campaigning.
We have all been part of the largest act of civil disobedience in British history.
