The pledge:


As a candidate for the European Parliament elections 2019:  


1 I support a commitment before the October deadline to safeguard citizens’ rights at EU/UK level, whatever the outcome of Brexit.  


2. I support a strong stance by the European Parliament on the protection of citizens' rights in any negotiations on a future EU/UK relationship.  


3. I support freedom of movement, and will conduct an honest debate to explain the opportunities it has given people across Europe and ensure this right is protected in the next European Parliament. 


Ask your MEP candidate to tweet a photo of themselves with a printout of the pledge below (the image has linked the PDF) to @the3million and @britishineurope


Further information:


The pledge is aimed mostly at British MEP candidates but it can be endorsed by MEP candidates from other EU27 countries in support of protecting the rights of EU citizens living in the UK and British citizens living in the EU27.


For further detail on how to secure rights by the October deadline, see .


the3million does not endorse individual candidates or any political parties.


Note to candidates:


Please take a picture of yourself with the pledge on a tablet or on paper and tweet it.
