WATCH: Portuguese national interrupts Sky News interview with emotional speech at Parliament protests
"I've looked after your children and your elderly, and now you kick me out."
After Parliament was suspended by the Queen on Wednesday, following a request from prime minister Boris Johnson, thousands of protesters took to the streets in London to have their voices heard.
During a Sky News report from the protests, a woman walked up to the camera and interrupted an interview being conducted at the scene.
"I'm Portugeuse, and I've worked here for 20 years, and I have no voice. And the resettlement scheme is not working," she said.
The Sky News reporter asked the woman if she was there to take part in the protests, to which she replied: "Yes, I have. Finally, I have, because I need a voice. I've worked and I gave this country my youth, and I'm very grateful for what you've taught me. But you must make a part of all this process.
"I can't just be kicked out. I've built things for you. I've looked after your children, I've looked after the elderly in this country, and now you kick me out. With what?
"I am very, very hurt by what they've done to England, because I came here and I joined the working force and I'm very proud of it, so I'm very angry at them for doing this to this country."
The woman began to walk off, but the reporter called her back, asking what exactly the government had said to her about her dealings with the resettlement scheme.
"They said my national insurance didn't correspond to the right thing, and they're saying they have to restart the whole process. But the 31st of October is fast approaching," she said.
"What am I going to do? What am I going to do? How am I going to stay? What are my rights? I'm in the dark like many, many people who have left London, because they were in the dark."
The woman then turned to the House of Parliament itself, and shouted: "Why has this unelected Parliament done this to us?"
