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
