Brought up in Northern Ireland and now living in England, Noel (left) @DevaCaerCastra, representing
@chesterforeu, spoke about his natural dislike of tribal nationalism, divisions and borders. From experience, he believes strongly that the referendum has created harmful divisions.
Howard (right), also from
@chesterforeu, spoke about his Dutch brother-in-law who felt the referendum had removed his identity. He’s lived & worked in the UK for 35 yrs and it’s had a huge emotional impact on him. Howard said the same applies to a friend who’s lived here for over 40 yrs.
Joel (left), also representing
@chesterforeu, looks at the bigger picture through the lens of history. He spoke about the EU being ultimately a force for good, and how working and cooperating across borders enriches us.
Next up to tell his
#BrexitIsPersonal story was Jochem (right), again from @ChesterforEu. Jochem is a Dutch citizen and has lived and worked in the UK for over 20 years.
@Timple07 was brought up to believe that truth is important and that it’s our duty to call out the lies we’re told. He spoke about being lied to on a massive scale by the Leave campaign. As an amateur historian, he believes that history will repeat itself when people also tell lies about the past.
We at the Final Say For All Foundation run Beehive events, where you can meet and chat with others in a friendly setting. Come join us for a drink and, if you want, tell us why Brexit is personal for you. With your permission, we can record your story and combine it with others from our Beehives across the country. Our aim is to distribute them to MPs, journalists and other powerful figures so that the real voice of the people is heard in the corridors of power.
We are many and we will not be silenced
