@The3Million #TheLastMile event about to get underway at #Lab18 Looking forward to hearing the latest updates on the fight to secure #CitizensRights
@PaulBlomfieldMP confirming that the shadow #brexit team stance is that current settled status proposition is inadequate.
1. It should be declaratory- not by application
2. It should be free, not reasonable to charge to maintain current rights.
@SebDance speaking now, describes as "heartbreaking" the situation where so many people came to build their lives in UK in good faith and had no say over the decision that might destroy this. "For citizens in limbo this is a nightmare"...
Clear commitment across MEPs of all member states that rights of @The3Million & @BritishInEurope should be defended and clear instruction conveyed to @MichelBarnier to keep this issue at front of discussions.
@ally_roche explaining how @unisontweets members impacted by uncertainty for #EU27 citizens disproportionately impacts part time and lower paid female workers in care and social care sectors.
@alexandrabulat sharing her perspective as 1 who is #823daysInLimbo and the promisises broken since the ref & how Theresa May promised UK wanted to attract the brightest & the best, yet her permanent residency was rejected whilst studying for her #PhD & working #brexitispersonal
@BritishInEurope chair, Jane Golding now exploding myths about typical British migrants working in the international gig economy. Continuing free movement is vital. Yet vast majority had no say because of disenfranchisement. Any #PeoplesVote MUST be a #FinalSayForAll
#HostileEnvironment & #Windrush have been observed across EU27 governments and damage done to the reputation of how UK will treat @The3Million
Now to close @CosiDoerfel sharing the details of @InLimboBrexit testimonies.
The deliberate policy of turning people into #bargainingchips was meant to divide @The3Million from @BritishInEurope but it instead forged an alliance of #The5Million to stand together for each other.
Takeaway from the evening for me, Ask yourself "Where is home?"

Now ask yourself what you can do to help those who only want to stay where they've made their home and built their lives.

Today marks #Omagh20 and the usual news cycle has been running its course throughout the day when mark significant events.

For a region that had seen so much blood shed over the previous 30 years it probably wouldn't have been unusual except for a number of factors 1/
Firstly, even for the bloodiest conflict in a generation the death toll was significant. 29 people died, one of whom was an expectant mother carrying twins.

A community and a country changed for ever 2/
Secondly, it happened after the #GFA had been ratified by referenda north and south of @BorderIrish with a resounding mandate that the people were tired of violence, of division and of hatred. The agreement had been signed just months before with so much hope and potential 3/
