EU nationals fight to save freedom of movement

EU nationals gathered outside the Home Office to fight against the government's plans to end freedom of movement on October 31


“A lot of policies that Brexiteers are bringing forth are anti-immigration.”

With the government planning to end freedom of movement at midnight on October 31, EU nationals living in the UK and British citizens gathered outside the Home Office to protest against this move.

Fearing that many people who have resided in the UK for more several years, sometimes decades, could be forced out, protestors told JOE: “I feel like this government, this whole country, has become more hostile to foreigners.”

One Austrian citizen living in the UK said: “People have finally woken up to the fact that they need to be politically engaged and that because their freedoms are about to be taken away from them, they need to fight for it.”
