#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

    As a fiercely proud Welshman & European, my rights to refer to myself as both are being dismantled before my very eyes by a rabid right-wing British Imperialist Tory Government aided and abetted by their Welsh devolution abstainers London Labour & Welsh Labour. Besides an outrageous undemocratic Brexit Senedd powergrab by Theresa May and her Brexiteer hypocrites, Wales face Whitehall capitulation by our soon-to-be ex-FM Carwyn Jones who offered up on a platter Wales powers of state, a so-called leader of a Welsh Government who recently stated in its 2018 Conference logo that it “Standing up For Wales” (Lying down more apt) who gave without written guarantee in law Senedd powers to Whitehall for the next 7 yrs. Political madness?

    Since the referendum have accepted that 52.5% in Wales voted Brexit. We are leaving the European Union. Oh but this was not a vote to leave our senses behind too , make Wales fiscally & democratically poorer, or sanction the repatriation of Wales sovereignty & power to London through the backdoor.

    The London establishment now want to remove my hard fought Welsh/European identity, to reverse Welsh devolution and to manipulate my human-rights. Wales is state in a state, used & abused, even though “allegedly” part of the the 5/6th largest economy in the world. I do not trust a Tory Government who ignored two devolution referendums to powergrab from our Senedd Cymru. Who constantly argued during the Brexit referendum how Europe dictates to Britain, how the EU stole & harboured Britain’s sovereignty, sovereignty & powers freely given I might add. A political party who lied in their 2015 manifestos about Welsh rail infrastructure pledges to the electorate, who now want to remove my identity, manipulate rights as a Welsh European post-Brexit. No thanks! If leaving the EU means anything. Wales and Wales alone should dictate where power lies and what political path we take. #Ymlaen

    I consider myself Welsh,British and a European. I believe we should have another referendum . The slim 3.8% majority would be overturned by the youth vote and by those who can now see the true COST’S to the ordinary people. Both of Wales and the UK

    There will be more than 3.8% new young people eligible to vote by the EU leaving date they will have their EU Citizenship taken away without the opportunity to vote.

    I dread Brexit (if it’s actually going to happen). I’m a European through and through, and intend to remain a citizen of Europe (and the world!).

    In or out of Europe is a complex issue, and the the in/out referendum was too simplistic as can be seen from the state of the current negotiations. I am Scottish by birth , Irish by nationality, Welsh by residence and th n … iThe vote was too simple European buy inclination. We are stronger in a larger European body, and weaker on our own.
