Launch of Free Movement video campaign

British in Germany has teamed up with British in Europe to produce a video campaign highlighting the positive cases of free movement and calling for this to be put back on the table in negotiations.
We have had two professional videos made and want YOU to support the campaign by making your own videos – watch the instructional video for more information on how to do this.
Please share anywhere and everywhere and encourage your friends/family/colleagues to make their own videos. We are looking forward to seeing your submissions.

is a fundamental right of all EU citizens.
It means you can live, work, travel and study in any EU country.

Under the current draft UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement all UK citizens living in the EU will LOSE their right to Free Movement.


There are 1.2 million British citizens living in the European Union. All of them plus their families, friends and colleagues would be affected if free movement were lost.

We want Theresa May to put continuing free movement for UK citizens in the EU back on the negotiating table.

And YOU can really help!

One thought on “Launch of Free Movement video campaign”

  1. Please consider this corrected version for posint.

    Congratulations to Jane Golding on how she carried out her interview with Adam Bolton. Adam Bolton is a fair interviewer who asks penetrating questions and usually allows the interviewee to answer (an all to rare quality on today’s TV).
    Whilst appearing very slightly nervous at the outset she presented the wish for free movement for Brits in Europe very well, politely correcting him that she was based in Germany and then clearly dealing with his probing question about justifying her claim regarding the wish for freedom of movement. He asked a typically provocative question about why, if EU citizens in UK have no opportunity of moving cross border in UK why should UK citizens in Germany (he originally asked about Spain) expect to be able to move into other countries. Jane’s answer 58% of 3000 respondents to a recent questionnaire need freedom of movement for business or family reasons.
    She could have brought out the point that she considers herself a “Brit in Europe” – not a Brit in Germany. After all, that is what is says on the box !
