Don't make citizens pay the price of Brexit!

Friday, January 31, 2020 - 17:30 to 23:30

Brexit is not an invitation to compromise the rights of the 5 million EU citizens in the UK and British citizens in the EU.

We don't want the 31 January to pass without reminding those watching that the post-Brexit rights of #the5million have still not been fully guaranteed.



We are calling on people around the UK and in Europe to light a candle and to think about the rights of #the5million.

Please do join with others all around the UK and in Europe and light a candle for #the5million and for all the British people and the generation to come who will lose their rights because of Brexit.

By doing so you will help give meaning and hope to an occasion which for many of us will also be filled with anger, disappointment and sadness.

Share your photographs on twitter using #CourageCalls and #the5million and tag @neweuropeans if you would like us to retweet.


We are organsing a candlelit vigil as our way of showing that the rights of EU Citizens in the UK and Britons in the EU are not yet fully guaranteed.

The vigil will take place from 5:15pm in Westminster. Details will be sent in advance to those who sign up to take part.

A well as the London vigil, there will be a vigil outside the European Parliament in Brussels.
