21/04: EUROCITIZENS MEETS MEP BEATRIZ BECERRA IN MADRID

Camilla Hillier-Fry (EuroCitizens) and Beatriz Becerra MEP (ALDE)
   Last Friday 21 April, EuroCitizens met Beatriz Becerra, MEP (ALDE) and member of the European Parliament task force for Brexit. We had a productive meeting in which we shared information and identified how we can work to help each other. Beatriz is also in close contact with The3Million and Españoles en el Reino Unido.
   The European Parliament task force is made up of various MEPs, from the UK, Spain and other countries, though they emphasise that their duty is to represent all European citizens and defend their rights. The EP task force has reported infractions of European citizens’ rights and discrimination by the UK government and has a newsletter which you can subscribe to by sending a mail to eucitizenstaskforce@gmail.com.
   Two key events organised by the Brexit task force are happening in May, and we have been invited (along with British in Europe, the pan-European association we work with) to participate if possible:
   On 11 May there is a EU citizens hearing in the European Parliament, organised by the commissions of Employment, Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs and Petitions. The hearing will be streamed, nevertheless there will be the opportunity for members of the public to ask questions.
   On 23 May the Spanish MEP is visiting London. Beatriz Becerra will be travelling by EuroStar to London and meeting with Liberal Democrats, the Spanish Chamber of Commerce and Españoles en el Reino Unido (and the Spanish Ambassador the next day).
