Green Card 4 Europe campaign - latest news

Author: Roger Casale


Dear Backers!

First of all thank you for your pledges and messages of support. 

It is really inspiring to know that we have such a great group of people behind us who really understand that the GreenCard4Europe idea is a powerful idea and at that we need to see it implemented as soon as possible.

Here is a selection of some of your quotes:

I am writing to let you know that we are now two thirds of the way towards our target of £5,000 for this phase of the campaign.

Anything more you can do, or you can ask others to do to take use closer to that target will be a huge help.

We are preparing to be in Strasbourg next week for the Plenary session of the EU Parliament.

We will be lobbying Guy Verhofstadt and all the members of the Brexit Steering Group in the European Parliament as well as the MEPS who have signed up to the new Citizens' Rights Friendship Group in the European Parliament that your help has allowed us to initiate.

We will also hold a major event in partnership with the European Parliamentary Association at which Claude Moraes MEP, Chair of the Parliament's Civl Lberties Committee will debate the future of free movement with Elmar Brok MEP from the European People's Party.

And we have the help of Madeleina Kay, EU SuperGirl and Young European of the Year in 2018 who will be in Strasbourg with us and speaking at the debate.

 

 

 

Then on 18 June, I will be meeting again with Marie Simonsen of the Article 50 Task Force in Brussels and on the 19 June with Home Office officials in London.

We are constantly stepping up the pressure now as we go towards the European Council meeting at the end of June. 

It is abundantly clear to more and more people (we have said this from day one after the referendum)  that something must be done now to mitigate the appalling uncertainty to which Britons in the EU and EU27citizens in the UK have been are being subjected.

There is also a growing realisation that the future relationship between Britain and the EU cannot be predicated on throwing all future transnational citizens into the general immigration system because the result will be a rapid decline in the number of people moving to the UK from the EU to work and vice versa which will be very bad for both economies.

We are also making good headway with press coverage and I hope you will have seen the article on www.politics.co.uk

Here is the invitation to our meeting in Strasbourg next week - if any of you are near enough to attend you will be very welcome indeed

We are planning to launch the Green Card Prototype on 4 July and we will send you your cards in that week .

I will be in touch again before that with more details!

In the meantime, please do consider a further donation to push up towards our target and spread the word that the campaign is gaining traction and ask others to support us too!.

With renewed thanks and best regards
