EU NATIONALS WILL BE 'ONE OF MAIN CARDS' IN 'HARD BREXIT' NEGOTIATIONS

As we expected at EuroCitizens, the rights and futures of millions of people have become bargaining chips in the post-Brexit negotiations between the UK and the EU. Trade Minister Liam Fox could not have been clearer when he refused to give any reassurances about the future of EU nationals in Britain. That would be 'to hand over one of our main cards in the negotiations' stated the hardline Brexiter. Thus it is evident that both Britons in Europe and Europeans in the UK will be used as levers to obtain trade deals and better conditions for Britain's divorce with the EU. Prime Minister May and her team of hadline Brexiters have also shown that this will not be an easy separation. Stopping immigrants coming into the UK and reasserting 'national sovereignty' will prevail over a softer approach. 
In our opinion, this means that joining together to fight for our rights and futures (and those of Spaniards in Britain) has become more important than ever. 
On October 15, EuroCitizens will be holding our first public meeting (more information)
