Statements of support



For peace, human rights, culture and economy we are all European and should not have this right removed from our identity. It is indispensable and central to our way of life.



My rights as a UK citizen living and working in the EU are about to be take away from me. I am just one of the millions who was not offered the opportunity to voice opinion as to whether the UK should remain or leave the EU. Retention of my EU citizenship is a most vital aspect of my life. The British government does not act in my name and is not supported by the British people. Indeed the government is supported by 17.4m people and not the 65m people as falsely claimed by the PM.



“Where do I start? It's still unbelievable that the UK wants to leave the EU. Please help the 48% retain their European identity and citizenship. The UK government doesn't represent us-- I hope the EU will.



“I am a citizen of Europe and do not want to have my rights taken from me. Organisations and initiatives like yours are key to helping cope with the realities of where the

nation now finds itself placed.



“I support retaining my European Citizenship - more than furious about the UK government taking my rights away - rights I have used happily and proudly for 40 years in many ways - very disappointed that my son may lose the rights I have enjoyed also and desperate for him to have the same opportunities.



“For a Europe without borders and for a Europe of people working for an improved and shared future.



"I refuse to have my future, and that of my family, stolen away"



"I did not vote for Brexit, I did not vote to leave the EU. I Wish to remain in the EU. I have a German wife and lived in Germany for 13 years. I know we are better together."



"I am British & am about to be forced into a situation I couldn't even vote for. Thank you for helping me and all the other British people who are in despair about our country and its leaders. Retain EU citizenship!"

Sally (Spain)


"I am first and foremost a European and retaining this citizenship is most important to me."
