EuroCitizens is a new association formed by a group of UK citizens living, working and studying in Spain. We are greatly concerned about our future here and that of Spanish citizens living in the United Kingdom. With the vote in favour of Brexit, we have become bargaining chips and now face years of uncertainty and the loss of our existing rights as European citizens.
Our aims are to defend the European citizenship rights of Britons in Spain and Spaniards in Britain, specifically the freedom to live, work and study and work throughout the EU. We are determined to keep a more open and tolerant Europe. As well as looking to coordinate with other similar citizen groups around Europe, we would like to encourage the formation of a sister group in the UK, or link up with existing associations of Spanish citizens there.
Our first public event will be an informative session in Madrid about the position of British and Spanish citizens affected by Brexit. Sarah
In Spanish, though the meeting is primarily aimed at UK nationals:
Nuestro primer acto público será una sesión informativa en Madrid sobre la situación de los ciudadanos británicos y españoles afectados por la posible salida del Reino Unido de la Unión Europea. En esta ocasión contaremos con la presencia de Sarah-Jane Morris, cónsul británico en Madrid, quien hablará sobre el posible impacto del Brexit en ciudadanos británicos.
