Standing up for Islington


Islington is one community that is home to people of all backgrounds, including around 30,000 people from countries in the European Union. They are our friends, family and neighbours. They make a huge contribution to our vibrant and diverse community, and many work in vital jobs that support our daily life, such as in the NHS.

Our friends, family and neighbours, who are an essential part of our community, are being used by the Tory Government as bargaining chips in the Brexit negotiations.

We, the undersigned, call for the Tory Government to:

• Immediately guarantee the full rights of all EU citizens currently living in Islington
• Stop using our friends, family and neighbours as bargaining chips in the Brexit negotiations
• Guarantee that EU citizens’ rights will not be affected in the event of no Brexit deal being agreed

I’d be even more supportive if Labour would oppose Brexit altogether as it was not a democratic decision

Wrong to role back law. They came with good will, contribute to UK economy.

Why should they be use as bargaining tools to get what the Brexiteer want.

They have lived, worked and brought diversity to our borough. All nationals have brought their skills, knowledge and tolerance to share with us and earn a living. Part of Islington values is guaranteeing their residency and allowing them to visit their own country anytime they like.

I hope the MPs Jeremy Corbyn and Emily Thornberry will do more to stand up for them and maintain close ties with the EU to show the gratitude that Islington has presented for the various nationalities coming to our borough.
