Standing up for Islington


EU_Standing_Up_for_Islington.png

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

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.

Although I no longer live in Islington I work there. Several of the people I work with are EU citizens and should not have to face any uncertainty about their right to stay here.
