On Monday it was my privilege to again speak on Parliament Square, this time as part of #TheLastMile events. Here are two clips from my speech — parts of it are quite personal and that’s why the first bit comes with a little parental warning about c-bombs. 1/
In the end my demand though is clear: #citizensrights must be ring-fenced now because the uncertainty for #The5Million cannot continue. If you want to help EU citizens In the UK, please support my campaign by becoming an #EUcitizensChampion ➡️ gofundme.com/eucitizenscham… 2/
With many thanks to Geoffrey for filming and subtitling this — amazing and so much appreciated. 3/3

1️⃣ single photo in 1️⃣ UK media outlet on page 13 — it tells the story of #The5Million in a nutshell: still largely ignored and still no voice. 865 days later and with only 143 days to go. Shameful does not get more shameful than the indifference towards #TheLastMile in the UK. 1/
Contrast it with the response of media outlets in continental Europe and beyond. Two features in main evening news (Austria and Germany), and lots and lots of other pieces — from the Netherlands to France to Switzerland to South Africa. 2/
The indifference on display in the UK is quite soul-destroying. And here is why: I know from my engagement work for #EUcitizensChampion that people are concerned when one explains what is happening to #The5Million. My activity on Trafalgar Sq yesterday confirmed that again. 3/

Yesterday’s #TheLastMile was an incredible event and I am so proud of @The3Million & @BritishInEurope for organising it. It’s made the news in so many places. Here are some examples of the excellent coverage:

1/ What is wrong with the British media? Yesterday @the3million held a mass lobby at Parliament with over 300 concerned EU citizens & @BritishInEurope protesting. The event was covered globally, but nothing, nada, zilch in the main UK media.
2/ I spoke to TV and Press from Austria, Germany & Japan. There were TV crews from Portugal, France & Spain. But where was the coverage by UK media?
3/ here is the main German broadcaster @DasErste covering our lobby at Parliament during the main evening news yesterday

And finally a big thank you to @Alexa_Kantor and @MrsEmmaJK. You tell me I’m your hero. Well, I’m afraid you got that that wrong way round because you’re mine — and I’m so going to have the last word on this one 😉 It was my privilege to meet you xx 3/3

1. Dear @carolinenokes MP and @10DowningStreet.
I started to work in the UK (for @fusionenergy) on the 14/04/2014 as Senior Electrical Designer, I am now an Electrical systems design engineer.
A "#HighSkilled migrant" as they say, but not eligible to the #SettledStatus. [THREAD]
2. I will have my 5 eligible years on the 14/04/2019.
Or 16 days after #BrexitDay.
Maybe it is worth to mention that I arrived on the 01/12/2013. So I have actually my 5 years, but I have no proof.
I was joining an ex-partner to look for work in the UK, my name was not on bills.
3. Yesterday, like other fellow @The3Million, I read the following article.
"Employers will be expected to check whether EU nationals have the right to work in the UK if there is a #NoDeal #Brexit, even though it will be almost impossible to assess this".

I have asked my MP @AnnaMcMorrin to take the pledge and support the right of #The5Million to retain their current #citizensrights after Brexit.

Have you?

#EUcitizensChampion #bargainingChip #theLastMile #inLimbo

Ask your own MP here:
the3million.sentientleaf.com
Do you think I am the only one?

If each member of #The5Million who have been #inLimbo for 858 days now donated a single grain of rice, at 1 second for each grain.

We would be a large pile of 100 kg of rice.

After two months.

Join #thelastmile mass lobby of Parliament in London from 10am on Monday 5 November.

The last meters to Parliament we will bridge with a human chain for which we need you.
Please register here:
eventbrite.co.uk/e/brexit-the-l…
Together with @BritishInEurope and @unisontweets, we are asking MPs and the British Government to give us true peace of mind over our future, by protecting and guaranteeing our existing #citizensrights under international law using the Article 50 procedure.
Despite all the promises, our rights are still not sorted and there is very little time to make a difference so please join us on Monday 5 November in Parliament Square or through the e-lobby.
