Did you vote Leave?
Are you just tired of the permanent fight between Leave & Remain? Well here is a #Brexit topic both Leavers & Remainers can unite & agree on: the #citizensrights of EU citizens who have made their home in the UK.

1/
No one voted to take away #citizensrights from EU citizens already living in the UK.
No one voted to put 3m EU citizens through almost 1,000 days of uncertainty over their status in the country they made their home.
No one voted to punish their EU neighbours & colleagues.

2/
Whether people voted Leave or Remain they voted in the knowledge of the Vote Leave promise to EU citizens:
- no change for EU citizens
- a new automatic status
- treated no less favourably than at present

3/
What EU citizens have ended up with after over 900 days of uncertainty is a Settled Status system that forces EU citizens to reapply to be allowed to stay, to pay £65 for this and to end up with fewer rights. A status that will be even less certain in case of a #NoDealBrexit

4/
Today we have written to the EU urging them to #RescueOurRights. To work with the UK government to ring-fence the #citizensrights agreed in the Withdrawal Agreement no matter what the outcome on Brexit.


5/
No matter how you voted at the referendum it is now time for you to stand up & support EU citizens in the UK. It is not a matter of Remain or Leave but a matter of common decency to ensure that your EU neighbours, friends, colleagues will not become collateral Brexit damage

6/
Follow the example of Conservative MP @HuwMerriman - who supports the Govt's ambition to leave the EU but is asking for MPs across the benches, Leave & Remain, to do right by EU citizens.
7/
Now is the time to come together, to reach across the Leave / Remain divide, and do the right thing. To speak up to secure the #citizensrights of the 3.6m EU citizens in the UK & 1.2m @BritishInEurope. We need you. We need you to become an #EUCitizensChampion.

8/
Whether you voted Remain or Leave no one voted against common decency. Please see our website to find out more about our work:
