MORE than a dozen protestors gathered in Bourton-on-the-Water to campaign for the UK to remain in the EU.

Ginie Moss, along with 12 others, campaigned for Brexit to be reversed at The Village Green by standing in solidarity for EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the EU.

Mrs Moss, originally from France and now living in Bourton-on-the-Water, convinced people to attend from as far away as High Wycombe.

"I have lived in the UK 19 years since moving from France and I want other people to have that opportunity from the EU,” she said after last Saturday’s protest.

"I do not think anybody is happy with how Brexit is being handled and nobody voted for what is happening at the moment, so we want to get it reversed.

"Some leave voters say what we do is anti-democratic but we are entitled to our opinion.

"It was a successful protest and a lot of people were very positive about our message."

Amongst the attendants was Phil Jones from High Wycombe who often protests against Brexit by standing at the centre of roundabouts across the country.

Mr Jones stated to the Bucks Free Press in February his reasoning for doing so: "I stand in the middle of a roundabout because it symbolises being at the centre of things where I feel we ought to be."

Cllr Paul Hodgkinson, who represents Bourton-on-the-Water on Gloucestershire County Council, said: “It's vital for the government to confirm how EU residents in this country will be treated when Brexit happens.

“We should be committing to giving clarity to people who have made this their home and saying that they can remain.

“There are many people working in the UK who have made this country their home and want some reassurance.

“Just like UK citizens living in the rest of Europe need reassurance.

“We are talking about human beings here, they shouldn't be used as bargaining chips,” he added.
