Petitions and activism
Anyone want to keep their EU citizenship after Brexit?

It's clutching at straws I know but worth a signature. Please share.

We've moved to the Petitions section as we don't usually allow petitions on other boards!

Another petition about this.

Nah. I think once we're out that should be it. If we joined again later on we'd be far worse off than we are currently.

Surely if you wanted to keep your European Citizenship, you should have moved to a different European country prior to now? I say this as a non Brexiteer who will not be in this country in 5 years.

How can you keep your EU citizenship after Brexit?
PS "Citizenship" = "the position or status of being a citizen of a particular country". So I'm not sure you can be a citizen of the EU.

As I said, clutching at straws.
I really, really don't want my children (or myself) to be stripped of our rights as EU citizens and neither do they.

The second petition you posted explicitly said that being an 'associate citizen' you wouldn't retain the rights of EU membership. I got the vibe that it's just a way to record your protest and hopefully encourage change.
I didn't read the first one, I confess, because the link wasn't clicky.

What rights would you have as a citizen of the EU that you won't have as a citizen of the U.K.?
Nothing has been agreed yet, but we won't be falling into a black void where no one has any "rights".
