During our last telephone conference call we were joined by Liz Webster who is helping to encourage the Flock Brexit European Citizens' Initiative (ECI).
This is a petition that would transform into a legally binding direct democracy tool once the threshold of 1 million signatures is achieved.
The goal of this initiative is to convince the European Commission and the European Parliament to pass a regulation and/or decision that will allow UK nationals to keep their EU citizenship regardless of Brexit negotiations. The petition can be signed by UK Nationals and Nationals of the other 27 member states.
It was a very informative session. Liz has promised to come and see us after the General Election when we plan to arrange a physical meeting. You can find out about the initiative here and if you would like to get involved in your area of Lincolnshire, please email us or ask to join the Flock Brexit, Stand Up For Your Rights! Facebook group.
