Concerned Thurrock residents get valuable advice on EU residence following Brexit

THURROCK Labour Party’s Ethnic Minorities Officer Qaisar Abbas hosted an event in Grays to discuss the post referendum situation.

Thurrock Labour Party’s Chairman Mr Colin Ricks, Mr Mike Fletcher (Secretary), Ms Lee Watson (Vice Chair Membership), Cllr Oliver Gerrish, Cllr Tony Fish, Cllr Jane Pothecary, Mr Vincent Offord, Ms Thandiwe Khumalo, Mr Abul Khoyar (Chairman THH), representative of Hope Not Hate, EU and Non EU citizens attended the event.

Guest speaker Barrister Robert Parkin and Solicitor Nabil Tariq shared their legal opinion on Article 50 and how EU citizens can apply for their residence cards.

Qaisar Abbas said "today we are not here to discuss leave or remain campaigns or results of EU Referendum but to find out the way forward and how we can heal from this division.

Mr Abbas also raised serious concerns over 50% rise in hate and racially motivated crimes in Essex since referendum results.

The results of EU Referendum has created a division among the society and it also highlights the intentions of some far right groups who are using shoulders of leave voters for their own agenda.

Mr Abbas said he wants to make it clear that we are not against remain or leave voters as both side voters exercised their democratic right.
