ECI “EU Citizenship for Europeans: United in Diversity in Spite of jus soli and jus sanguinis”
On 8 February 2017, ECIT Foundation submitted a petition to the European Parliament arguing against the loss of EU Citizenship for 64 million people as a result of Brexit. On 21 June 2017 Tony Venables, ECIT Founder, presented it to the Members of the Petitions Committee – he asked the European Parliament to use its powers of inquiry and oversight to challenge the assumption that citizens of a country leaving the EU should lose their EU citizenship.
On 27 March 2017 the ECI “EU Citizenship for Europeans”, informally known as Flock Brexit, has been registered. Its goal is to convince the European Commission and the European Parliament to work on a regulation which would allow UK nationals to keep their EU citizenship regardless of Brexit negotiations. You can sign the ECI until 27 March 2018 and discover more on the official website or on the Facebook page.
