1.On 12th Oct, a group of campaigners organised #R4OR to highlight the risk of Brexit to our rights. This is the 2nd part of all the speeches from that day.

We @FinalSayForAll work hard to show how #BrexitIsPersonal. If you wish to help, please donate at finalsayforall.eu
2. Annelies @Liesebieke speaks about how limited the access to the NHS is for people with disabilities & how so many of them are paying for treatment themselves. Brexit will only make this worse for her, even make it life-threatening. #ROAR
3. Steve Bray @snb19692 spoke at #R4OR of how SODEM represents everyone, no matter how they voted, and even if they don’t realise it. How we need to understand what led us here & the need for PR. They're fighting for everyone’s rights & future.

You’ll find Aranza’s story on our YouTube channel, along with >150 #BrexitIsPersonal stories filmed up & down the country.

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.

Watch the rest of Ellie’s film to hear why #BrexitIsPersonal for her.

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.

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.

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.

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

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/

I’m still in Brussels and today it’s all about raising awareness for the serious threats still faced by @The3Million & @BritishInEurope. That’s FIVE million people! And to all of us #BrexitIsPersonal. Please join me in telling your story here today as #OneOfThe5Million 1/
So I am #OneOfThe5Million and to me #BrexitIsPersonal not only because of the immediate impact it has on my rights—I have to apply to stay in my own home—but also because of the significant personal cost standing up to it has had. 2/
Please join in on Twitter throughout the day using #BrexitIsPersonal & #OneOfThe5Million ... And watch this space later to learn what I’m up to. 3/3

Last year, when I was really suicidal because #BrexitReality has unbalanced me, I made this petition to David Davis asking for a FinalSay.
you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/meas…

I'm grateful to everyone who signed up, but it made no difference & I nearly gave up.
Rumble strips are a godsend.
I'm OK but I must fight those feelings of helplessness every single day.
#BrexitIsPersonal

Then there was another #FinalSay petition on @HocPetitions petition that, despite @DExEUgov trying to reject it, went to (great) debate in December 2017.

@HoCpetitions @DExEUgov How much longer do we need to wait until we all accept that we need to put the brakes on & check Brexit?

We'll never be United Kingdom without #FinalSay

It's a result we can all respect, however it turns out

Better safe than sorry

Look before we Leave

For those denied a vote in the EU referendum, #BrexitIsPersonal. We will continue to give a voice to those denied a say in their futures, and already affected by Brexit. Any future votes must include a #FinalSayForAll, and an #OptionToStay. Here’s how we hope to achieve this.
FinalSayForAll was founded by Bloke From Barnsley @Nickynoo007, John Ling @grrrahh and Michael Moss @MintyTeaboy, three British citizens who were concerned about the 5 million citizens both in the UK and the EU who were denied a vote in the EU referendum of 2016.
They met many people across social media who had very personal stories to tell, who felt that their voices were being drowned out by rallying cries of British independence and taking back control. Their lives have been turned upside down against their will.
