Petition Summary

The petitioner is proud to be a European and identify as a European Citizen first and foremost, and laments that the UK has chosen to leave the EU and has thus put hers and others' European Citizenship at risk. She underlines the distinction between citizenship and nationality and claims that once European Citizenship is granted this should endure, unless the individual chooses to give it up. She is asking the EU to ensure that its citizens are not discriminated against on account of nationality and that the European Parliament proposes legislation to confirm and ensure the enduring rights of European Citizens.
