#IAmEuropean - Sign the petition


The Westminster Government’s Brexit plans strip us of our European Citizenship and, in many respects, our European identity.

It means your right to travel, live and work across Europe will be curtailed. It means your freedom to study and not be discriminated against based on nationality will be lost. It means that you are no longer European.

Stripping people of their citizenship against their will is not only wrong, but according to legal experts, illegal under international law.

How can Westminster take away your rights, against your will? How can Westminster remove your European identity? How can Westminster take away, against your will, the citizenship with which you were born?

Brexit’s disastrous economic consequences are apparent. But, now Westminster wants to take away who we are, how we define ourselves – our identity.

Will you join us in telling Westminster that we are European?

Also come and join us in Westminster on Wednesday 7 March at 11.00am, before PMQs, to demonstrate outside Parliament. Join the Facebook event here

    I am passionate about remaining in Europe: although my mother came from Germany I never worried about citizenship as I was ‘European’ already. Now trying in vain to get citizenship… very worried about the future.

    Some EU citizenship criteria does not meet Human Rights Act 1998 (HR) & Equal Opportunities (EO) Legislation & the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) which came into being in 1953, and to which both Germany & the UK are signatories. I have UK citizenship, and have been married to a German female since 1971 (who holds dual German & UK citizenship), our two eldest sons born 1971 (in Germany) & 1974 (in UK) are not entitled to claim German citizenship, whilst our two youngest sons born 1987 (in UK) & 1989 (in Germany) both have German & UK citizenship. Had our two eldest sons been born to a “German” father & UK mother, they would also be entitled to German citizenship. These issues, in tandem with European Citizenship, are unacceptable under both HR & EO law, and should be addressed by the European Court of Justice (ECJ), on behalf of all EU27/28 Member States, as part of the Brexit negotiations.

    I spent a few days in France this week where 8th May was again celebrated as a national holiday. It was Victory in Europe Day 2018, remembering the end of the second world war in Europe on 8th May 1945. I remain a European to try and prevent such horrors of war occurring ever again on our continent.

    It is very important to me that we remain an active member of the European community, contributing and receiving help.

    Of course we British are European; likewise Londoners are British, as are we in Wales and Scotland. Even Shetlanders admit to being Scots alongside Norse, and they are the most cosmopolitan of all. Why the head in the sand attitudes? How can we possibly benefit from pretending to be apart from the Continent upon whose Shelf we are perched?
