ON WEDNESDAY 13 SEPTEMBER, JOIN THE CITIZENS' DAY OF ACTION AND STAND UP WITH EU CITIZENS IN THE UK AND BRITISH CITIZENS IN EUROPE
You are invited by the3million, British in Europe, UNISON, Migrants Rights Network, Another Europe is Possible and European Alternative to a day of action in support of EU Citizens in the UK and British Citizens in Europe.
We are entering a crucial phase in the Brexit negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union and we expect both sides to have agreed #citizensrights on principles by the end of October so now is time for all of us to stand up and tell both institutions not to play with the lives of 4.2 million citizens but to secure a settlement that will guarantee over their lifetime the exactly same rights that they enjoy now.
We are not asking for special treatment – just that the rules of the game are not changed after the match has started. In the name of fairness, no other outcome would be acceptable and Brexit cannot be used as an excuse to strip us of any of our existing rights now or in the future.
This is why we are organising a day of action in support of EU citizens in the UK and British citizens in Europe on Wednesday 13 September and we are urging everyone who agrees with our cause to join us on that day. On that day, we will lobby the British Parliament and organise a mass rally on Trafalgar Square where London Mayor Sadiq Khan will be speaking. We will also issue an open letter to the British Government and the European Union, supported by a wide range of organisations.
There are various way you can get involved on Wednesday 13 September:
Join the social media e-lobby online (registration here)
Join the mass lobby of parliament at 2PM (registration here)
Join the Rally on Trafalgar Square at 6PM (optional: please register here and you can share it on social media; this will help us reach out to more people)
Ask your employer to support our open letter to the British Government and the European Union (more information here)
You can also donate for the day of action using a specific GoFundMe page (we have a £10K target to cover all costs related to the rally) or volunteer your time on the day to be a member of our team of stewards.
On September 13th, whether you are an EU Citizen living in the UK, a British Citizen living in Europe or simply someone who believe that we should be able to continue to live our lives unchanged, stand up with us to protect citizens' rights.
This is our our home. Share the love!
