“When are you going back to Barcelona?” asked one of Aranza's work colleagues on a number of occasions after the referendum.

An all too familiar story for EU citizens who chose to make their home in what used to be a welcoming country. /1

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to make @Rally4OurRights happen on 12th October.

We are close to covering our main costs, and are working on a shoestring budget, but need a bit more to get there.

Please help a little if you can.

gogetfunding.com/r4or-rally-4-o…
Please note that any money raised over and above that needed (and we mean really needed) for the event will be split between the following causes:

gosh.org

the3million.org.uk
The rally will be at 3 locations in London on 12th Oct:

1. The guarantor of current rights - The EU office on Smith Square
2. The HQ of those wishing to tear up rights - 55 Tufton St.
3. The Dept many will be (unconfidently) relying on - The Home Office

Denied a vote, hung out to dry in negotiations, rights we rely on removed without our consent, and now no NHS access for most when visiting our families.

The UK Govt’s campaign against its own citizens, the @BritishInEurope, continues. #BrexitIsPersonal

Already, any UK Citizen returning from the EU27 (perhaps because the end of FoM has ruined their livelihoods) will have to wait 3 months, AND PROVE that they’ve “cut ties” with their former home and have family or property ties in the UK to claim benefits.

I was sent to Belgium by the UK Govt. I stayed here because my wife got permanent a job in an insitution the UK is a member and shareholder of.

Until 2016 it was UK Government policy to get UK nationals into the EU institutions.

I because self-employed, as is my Treaty right.

As Parliament in the UK has been silenced, we thought we'd fill the void tonight with @EllieChownsMEP, Green MEP for the W. Midlands, talking about why she became involved in politics.
It was a delight to welcome her to our #FSFABeehive event in Hereford. #BrexitIsPersonal /1
Watch the rest of Ellie’s film to hear why #BrexitIsPersonal for her.
If you are proud, like Ellie, to be both British and European, stand up with us and demand to be represented in BOTH Parliaments. /2

Mark @ItRecks joined us at the #FSFABeehive in Hereford with @HerefordshireEU. He may be more familiar to you as the 8ft dinosaur, T-Rexit.
In this clip he talks about the severe impacts of a no-deal Brexit: “We’ve been lied to all the way through this.” #BrexitIsPersonal /1
Watch the rest of Mark's film to hear why #BrexitIsPersonal for him.
If you’re just as angry & frustrated at all the lies people have been sold, then stand up with millions of us to demand a #FinalSayForAll or better still, #RevokeA50. /2

Eddie was far too young to vote in the 2016 referendum. He’s still too young to vote now, but he knows how damaging #Brexit will be for others. That’s why he’s joined the protest against Brexit because “other people will suffer if I don’t do anything.” #BrexitIsPersonal /1
Watch the rest of Eddie’s short film. If you feel proud of him for standing up for his generation’s future, stand up with him and millions of others in demanding a #FinalSayForAll, or better still #RevokeA50.

Julia suffers from epilepsy and it’s taken 10 years for her to get the right medication to enable her to work and have a life. Now she’s terrified that Brexit will put her medication at risk and she’ll be back to square one. #BrexitIsPersonal 1/

This fairy story pushed by Boris Johnson claiming it is lack of patriotic faith which somehow has brought Brexit to it’s knees really is pulling the wool over our eyes. I ask you this. Why did the Brexit architects think so little of the UK and British influence all those years?
Do they believe their own press that their public policy failings were the fault of EU law? Do they believe their own press that the UK was a victim, a prisoner of the the EU whilst at the same time being
so important and powerful that the 27 partners would roll over and give them absolutely everything they want? The truth (complex and nuanced) of our relationship with the EU is a long way from the simplistic banana and kipper rubbish fed to the “masses” by Johnson & co.

Tomorrow is the #MarchForChange
We have never needed to take to the streets in huge numbers before.
What is happening in the world is not normal but with every horrific statement we hear from leaders it becomes the new normal. 1/
When people talk about the Holocaust, they say 'why did no one stand up and stop them?' They didn't because it had become the new normal. The time to stand up and be counted is NOW! 2/
So let's fill the streets of London tomorrow.
Let's shout until it hurts that we will not tolerate this.
Let's shout in support of #The5Million
Let's shout that they can't take our kids rights away.
Let's shout they can't take our future away. 3/

Howard talks about his Dutch brother-in-law who’s lived & worked in the UK for 35 yrs and feels the referendum has removed his identity. Howard has seen the huge emotional impact this has had on him, and also on a friend who’s lived here for over 40 yrs. #BrexitIsPersonal /1

On Monday I am (probably) in national press & on TV talking about how, despite being stable, capable & mostly happy for 15 yrs after spending my 20s in psychiatric care, the unbearable shiteness of Brexit made my suicidal thoughts re-emerge.

#MakeItStop #FinalSay
I'm a lot better this year but last year was particularly difficult.
There were a couple of incidents that could've gone badly but thankfully didn't.

I'm really struggling to see why we are just letting this be done in our name when it will only make things worse for most of us
I'm hoping people will agree that it's not me that's crazy, simply that #BrexitIsBonkers.
Hoping that people just don't see how damaging this path will be to anyone who isn't tax-dodging profiteer.
That they haven't seen the impact Brexit is already having on us & our neighbours.

@EU_Commission @eucitizenschamp Theresa May: "We will end free movement once and for all."

Free movement is a reciprocal right. The freedom to live and love in 28 EU countries. The greatest economical, political, cultural and social achievement of our times.

John @john196201 explains how Brexit's already had an impact on his dental practice. Working ethically, along with the fall in the pound, means he's already taken a huge financial hit. He fears far worse is to come, as vital medical supplies become scarcer. #BrexitIsPersonal /1

I am a scientist and #OneOfThe3Million EU citizens in the UK. #FOM has been essential, both for my professional career, as well as my personal life. It has allowed me to live, work, and build personal relationships with people from all over Europe. To me, #BrexitIsPersonal. 1/10
More than that though, #Brexit is about who we are as people & country: do we celebrate diversity and internationality, or do we hide away from the wider world, alone behind a wall? 2/10
May's witch-hunt against non-UK citizens (which started while she was in the HO where she implemented the #HostileEnvironment) is inexcusable and misguided. It needlessly constricted her negotiation space with the EU, resulting in the damaging deal currently on the table. 3/10

David voted to leave the EU but now regrets it. #BrexitIsPersonal for him because he's had to reassess his beliefs. He’s always felt politics should be about looking after individuals, but feels that the whole Brexit process has not done that. He now wants a #FinalSayForAll /1

I've spent the last 2.5 years in a horrible place and no, I'm not talking about Birmingham - in fact, I love where I live, in the place many seem to fear most, a truly multicultural neighbourhood, it's part of why I fight so hard.
#SaveBrum
We voted Remain btw
When the referendum came I wasn't paying attention to the world, I was just hanging out with my 3yo child, who was going to start school that autumn.
It was our last Spring of hanging out together.
I read around all the arguments for Leave but in my view the EU is not our enemy
In fact, my experience of the EU has been very positive as previously I worked in Home & Child Safety promotion and before that set up a small business in event services with the help of EU regional development funds.
Plus I have lived in Germany, my friends & family are European

Please take the time to watch Stephanie's @Dukespoint film. It's heartbreaking to hear her speak of her life in limbo. She's supported her UK military husband throughout his career and now may not be eligible for settled status. Is this what anyone voted for? #BrexitIsPersonal /1

Here are 200+ reasons, left from the #MayWallOfShame on the wall in my study, that tell you why I am so profoundly angry tonight. 200+ out of #The5Million. All of you are why I do what I do. And next I will do more in #Bath this Saturday. I hope to meet many of your there. 1/
Meet you there either for my next #EUcitizensChampion event in central Bath (details tbc). Or later on in the day at the next @FinalSayForAll Beehive to bear why #BrexitIsPersonal to do many of you. Details here: eventbrite.co.uk/e/fsfabeehive-… 2/
I end tonight by telling myself something I told others on Parliament Square only last week: courage calls to courage everywhere. Listen to the call — and keep pushing. 3/3

I'm sure many of you already follow the brilliant @FinalSayForAll. Tonight they have launched the first Beehive clip - stories told by people from all over the UK and EU about why #BrexitIsPersonal to them. First up is @GuitarMoog, but many more are to come. Check it out! 1/
And make sure to keep an eye on new ones as so many clips have been recorded in so many places, from London to Brussels to Edinburgh and many more. 2/
Let me end with a personal note: this is a good moment for me to say thank you again for the incredible help so many from Final Say for All have given me this year for my #EUcitizensChampion Campaign. Could not have done it without them xx 3/3

For 860+ days now #The5Million of us - that is all of us @The3Million at home in the UK & all @BritishInEurope - have stood together for our rights. As the UK govt's endgame has come, please come stand with us next Monday for the #LastMile we have to go to secure our future. 1/ Image of Tanja Bueltmann, one of the five million - five million is the rough combined number of EU citizens who live in the UK and British citizens who live in an EU country.
Come join me for the human chain to Downing St and the rally on Parliament Sq, where I and others will reclaim our voice - the voice this govt, many politicians and commentators, continue to deny us to this day. There will also be a lobby. Full details: 2/
While many will join the lobby, I will then be doing another #EUcitizensChampion awareness activity together with the lovely @_anjaheilmann in central London. Details on Monday. If you are in London, I hope to see you there, but as always you'll also be able to join in online. 3/
