12. I see there's a change.org petition to the EU Comission asking for Brits to retain EU citizenship

if they so want it: https://www.change.org/p/european-commission-continued-eu-citizenship-for-brits

I am British and European. I was born a European citizen, and I have enjoyed the great benefits of citizenship throughout my life. As things stand, this will sadly end in 2020. Suddenly in 12 months time, Brits will no longer be European citizens. We will be losing part of our international identity. Please sign this petition, urging the European Commission and EU, to maintain European citizenship for those that would like to keep it, but who stand to lose it due to Brexit...


A comment:

Does the UK government have the legal right unilaterally to remove our EU citizenship? Including those who were born EU citizens and those who were disenfranchised by the 2015 UK Referendum Act? Isn't this for the EU to decide?


And there's a group or poll here with the same aim with over 136000 signatures: https://www.eucitizenship.org.uk/
