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

May I add that I would like you to Immediately guarantee the full rights of EU citizens currently living in the UK, not just Islington.

EU citizens living and working in the UK must be given firm assurances that their rights to remain full citizens in this country will be honoured and respected. They must not be treated as pawns in the Brexit negotiations!

I have so many friends who are from the EU who contribute so much to British society (and wealth). It is shameful that they remain in limbo about their rights and security.

Theresa May you should have done this a year ago to show that the Brits are on the moral high ground on this one. The trouble is too many people in your party can’t see it that way as they are blinded my xenophobic prejudice. It’s time to stand up to them.

As a past resident of Islington, I wish to add my name to this plea to ask the current government to guarantee the rights of E U citizens within the whole of London, and to stop using these people as a part of Brexit negotiations

We need EU citizens , like my daughter in law, who is a teacher. She has lived here for 20 years but now feels insecure.

The indifference demonstrated towards the fate of the entire nation by the tories is grievous. As we discover they are driven only by the desire to beggar our neighbours and short our economy to be sold at bargain prices perhaps a united fightback is overdue? Those who will not, harm themselves as well as the peoples of neighbouring nations wherever they live and work. How far and fast we are falling.
