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

I cannot easily bear these negotiations in the hands of self serving individuals – it seems, to me, a catastrophe!

My partner, a non-British EU citizen currently living in Islington with me, feels simultaneously overlooked and under threat in the current political climate. To the government he is at best a bargaining chip, at worst a problem to be removed from the country, but at no point has he been made to feel like an individual who brings value to our community.

The tories are a sickeningly compassionless organisation and we must counter them at every level to retain our dignity, standard of living and a society of empathic people.

Multicultural neighbourhoods enhance everyone’s lives in many ways. I want it to stay this way. It will be a bleaker place without the mix of cultures. Please give our European neighbours reassurance that they can stay .
