Petition to Michel BARNIER, Theresa May MP

Joan and Lynn want a Green Card for Europe #EUGreenCard

Français - Español - Deutsch - Italiano - Polski We are two individuals, one from the UK and the other from the EU, campaigning for a Green card so we can work and live freely between the two states. Here's our story. Joan's story My name is Joan (John in English) – I am an EU citizen in the UK, a nurse and an award-winning NHS change-maker working to improve care for patients across the UK. I am also the father of three beautiful children. I feel scared about what will happen to my family and to me when Britain leaves the EU. I am worried about my kids’ education and our access to healthcare. I feel insecure about my long term rights to stay in Britain. I don’t want to be a second class citizen. The British government’s offer of settled status “deal or no deal” (unilateral guarantees) is a step in the right direction but it is not enough by itself. That’s why I’ve joined forces with New Europeans to campaign for a Green Card for Europe.” An #EUGreenCard would give me: -  physical proof of my settled status as an EU citizen in the UK -  guarantees of all my rights as an EU citizen in the UK -  permanent right to return to the UK -  backing of the EU -  peace of mind   Lynn’s story My name is Lynn and I’m a British national living in the EU. I’m a journalist and a translator and I don’t want to lose my right to freedom of movement. I also have a disabled step son who is very well looked after by the Spanish authorities. I am concerned about our access to care post Brexit. I don’t want to apply for Spanish citizenship which would mean giving up my UK passport and rights if my step son and I ever return to the UK. That’s why I’ve joined forces with New Europeans to campaign for a Green Card for Europe. An #EUGreenCard would give me:  - physical proof of my status as a Spanish resident -  free movement rights within the EU -  right to equal treatment -  recognition of my qualifications -  ability to retain my UK citizenship Help Joan and Lynn get what they need to sustain their livelihoods post Brexit.

Petition to Boris Johnson MP

Boris: Don’t Betray Future Generations! #NoToNoDeal

The UK’s exit date from the EU is fast approaching, and our new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has promised to take the UK out of the EU by the end of October “do or die” - a promise that’s already caused Cabinet Ministers to resign. If Boris allows this to happen, he is betraying future generations. Not just their opportunities, their futures, their freedoms - but their trust too. Without some kind of a Brexit deal, NHS chiefs have warned they could quickly run out of vital medicines and may have to delay operations for people in need. Supermarkets have spoken out about their concerns for our fresh food supply. Politicians on both sides of the channel have said this would mean a hard border in Ireland. People have started stockpiling because there is so much uncertainty. With this petition, let's demand Boris Johnson safeguards our future by ruling out a no deal Brexit. I run My Life My Say, a youth-led group made up of both Remainers and Leavers who have been fighting to make sure that young people aren’t forgotten when it comes to Brexit. I usually wouldn’t speak up like this but I’m terrified about what No Deal could mean for young people like me. Reports suggest that we’ll lose as much as £108,000 in earnings by 2050 if the UK crashes out of the EU without a deal. In the short-term they say it could cost 18 to 21-year-olds £675 a year and 22 to 29-year-olds £830 a year. By the Government’s own impact assessments, leaving without a deal would be disastrous for the future of this country and our everyday lives. It doesn’t have to be this way, and we must find a way to reunite our country.

Petition to The UK Government

Tax dodging The reason for the EU referendum

WHY THE UK SHOULD CAMPAIGN TO REMAIN IN THE EU Why has there been no mention in news bulletins or political reports about the steps that the European Union are going to introduce to tackle tax dodging by Corporations and private individuals. The Tory party and their friends in the media orchestrated the EU referendum to exit the EU because of these proposals. With Brexit, Tories managed to protect the assets of the wealthy tax avoiding individuals from new the EU regulation. David Cameron announced his historic decision to hold a referendum and give the British people a “simple choice” of determining whether or to stay in the European Union. Within minutes, Theresa Villiers, Priti Patel, Michael Gove, Iain Duncan Smith, Chris Grayling, and John Whittingdale appeared at the Vote Leave headquarters, holding a banner with a slogan “Let’s take back control”. Speaking on behalf of six Tory Brexiteers, Grayling explained that they want to restore the sovereignty of the British nation. Cameron stepped in to shield offshore trusts from EU tax crackdown in 2013: “David Cameron intervened personally to prevent offshore trusts from being dragged into an EU-wide crackdown on tax avoidance, it has emerged. In a 2013 letter to the then president of the European council, Herman Van Rompuy, the prime minister said that trusts should not automatically be subject to the same transparency requirements as companies… But when some in the EU wanted to extend the same principle to trust structures, Cameron said in his letter to Van Rompuy that tax authorities were already “gaining access to more information than ever before on trusts, especially offshore trusts,” through information-exchange agreements with tax authorities in different countries.” https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/apr/07/david-cameron-offshore-trusts-eu-tax-crackdown-2013 However, Brussels refused to comply and on 28 January 2016, the European Commission produced its first draft of The Anti Tax Avoidance Directive and three weeks later, David Cameron told a press conference in front of 10 Downing Street that the UK will vote on whether to remain in the EU on Thursday 23 June. Later on, it was revealed why Cameron was so keen to protect offshore trusts from the new EU regulation. “David Cameron’s father Ian ran an offshore investment fund that avoided ever paying tax in the United Kingdom, according to the so-called Panama Papers.” http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/panama-papers-show-david-camerons-father-avoided-paying-tax_uk_57025c46e4b0c5bd919b70bf Apart from changing his opinion on the EU referendum, David Cameron also alternated his meeting agenda with non-editorial executives and owners of British media. According to Press Gazette in 2013, 2014 and 2015, Cameron and George Osborne intensified their discussions with the pro-Brexit press. “Of the 23 meetings between October 2014 and September 2015, eight were with News Corporation executives, five with the BBC or BBC Trust and four with Telegraph Media Group.” http://www.pressgazette.co.uk/cameron-and-osborne-meetings-media-bosses-have-returned-pre-leveson-level/ According to the same source, after Brussels’ blunt refusal, Cameron and Osborne met 15 times with executive officials of News Corp., 16 times with executive officials of Telegraph Media Group, owned by wealthy tax-avoiding billionaires, Rupert Murdoch and Barclay Brothers. During the same period, Former Prime Minister and Chancellor reduced their meetings with the pro-EU press to only one with executive officials of Guardian News and Media and five with executive officials of Standard/Independent. Following the public release of Panama Papers, which exposed an alarming scale of tax evasion from companies that operate within the EU, Brussels decided that it will no longer tolerate companies that operate in blacklisted tax havens. According to Financial Times: “Brussels is to push for new disclosure requirements forcing companies operating in blacklisted tax havens to come clean about their profits and tax payments in a sign the crackdown response to the Panama Papers revelations has begun to snowball worldwide… The European Commission is preparing next week to strengthen a long-planned measure to force corporate disclosure of tax payments, profits made, and the number of employees in individual countries, so that the disclosure applies not only to activities in Europe but to those in a planned blacklist of tax havens outside the EU.” https://www.ft.com/content/5ee51bf4-fda3-11e5-a31a-7930bacb3f5f Backed by the press that is owned by tax avoiding media tycoons, who influenced the British voters to leave, Tory Brexiteers managed to safeguard the sovereignty of British wealthy tax avoiders from the new EU regulation. Tories’ Brexit stance and ongoing austerity measures manifest their unfaltering commitment to protecting tax avoiding individuals. This is why Murdoch, May, the other Press barons and the Tory party campaigned to leave the EU. Please share this with Brexiteers so that some of them may now realise how they have been sorely duped. Who knows, if this becomes known throughout the UK, the disastrous Brexit saga could be averted.
