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

Henry the VIII is dead the use of these powers should be to. The total disregard for our democracy by this government must be stopped. They must stop there total disregard for all the people that live in the UK. If the Tories take the hard brexit route they will only make Putin the winner. It will damage the UK and the EU.

The EU citizens that call the UK home must be protected as the UK citizens that live in the EU must be protected.

Brexit is a disaster for Islington and London. Friends, colleagues and neighbours now find themselves held hostage by an incompetent government.

My full time carer is from a country in the European Union, many disabled sick people, heavily rely on eu workers holding up social care, it’s not just nhs staff. No one should be used full stop least as a bargaining chip. We must protect people and the lives, families and Comunities they have been building and part of. We must respect human life and value of each life.
