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

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.

No Brexit is the real answer. The referendum was a totally inappropriate way of dealing with an issue of such geo-political importance. What is happening today is morally repugnant. It has made me ashamed of my nationality. NO TO BREXIT! I hope the time is coming when this will happen. AND NO MORE REFERENDA – to be distorted by the gutter press (and the BBC) either.
