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

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.

I am an EU citizen and I chose London as my home long time a go. Unfortunately I am starting to think that I made the wrong choice. I have never felt so unsettled in my life and I really hope that we will soon be able to understand what is going on. I still hope that this nightmare will stop soon.

‘One hand washes the other one and both of them wash the face’- that’s how our community builds up ,through the great and amazing impact of those EU citizens who have been living in Islington for a long period of time .The majority of those people are called life savers as they save a huge number of life’s in hospitals working for NHS ,firefighters or as paramedics .

We can’t allow Tory Government to use them based on their interests .

Brexit happened because we the public was not fully aware of the reasons why the Brexit is happening .We were told different story from what Brexit brough out now .
