On Tuesday 29 November, around a hundred people attended the presentation of EuroCitizens in a packed venue in central Madrid. The new group will be working to defend the EU citizenship rights of UK nationals in Spain. As well as discussing the aims of the group, there was a question and answer session on the impact of Brexit on British expats with the British consul in Madrid, Sarah-Jane Morris.
How is Brexit going to affect me as a UK national in Spain? What scenarios could guarantee my current rights as a European citizen? What can we do to fight for our futures? What is EuroCitizens and what does the group aim to do? We will deal with all these questions and more tomorrow evening (Tuesday 29 November, 19,00) in the Centro Gallego in Madrid. Members of EuroCitizens will talk about the group's objectives and plans. The British Consul, Sarah-Jane Morris will discuss the possible impact of Brexit on UK nationals. The journalist and researcher, William Chislett, will talk about a petition for dual national for Britons in Spain. Then you will have the chance to mention your concerns and ask questions. We hope that you can come!
On 29 November (19h Centro Gallego, Madrid) we will present our new association, EuroCitizens. We will explain our aims and how we hope to defend the EU citizenship rights of both UK nationals in Spain and Spanish citizens in Britain. Sarah-Jane Morris, British Consul in Madrid, will be attending and will talk about the possible impact of Brexit on British citizens here. We hope that you can come. Please share the information with family, friends and colleagues.
