  • Today is the sad anniversary of the EU referendum. I want to send a strong message to EU nationals in the UK and British nationals living elsewhere in the EU: Your rights in the upcoming negotiations are of paramount importance to me, the Green Party of England and Wales​ and Greens/EFA in the European Parliament. To mark this occasion, I've launched a new Free Movement Hub to provide resources for those who are concerned about their rights, and updates on my work on this issue:

  • Today, our planet is home to more refugees and displaced people than ever people – 65.6 million people, to be exact. When faced with such vast numbers, it’s all too easy to lose sight of the human aspect of this crisis. This #RefugeeWeek, the Greens/EFA in the European Parliament have hosted a portal allowing visitors in Brussels to connect with individual refugees around the world. It's time to talk less about refugees, and more with them!

  • In today's Queen's Speech, the Government proposed a new Immigration Bill. It's entirely focused on EU immigration but is thin on detail, to say the least. "There is no detail on what will replace EU free movement law, no indication of whether new UK rules might be introduced specifically for EU migrants in future, no hint as to whether existing EU residents might be treated differently to future EU law entrants, nothing on guaranteeing the rights of existing EU residents and nothing on whether there might be transitional arrangements," writes immigration barrister Colin Yeo.

  • The 'refugee crisis' may have disappeared from the news agenda, but that doesn't mean that the issue has been solved. At the end of 2016 there were 65.6 million people displaced worldwide - a record high. Some 28,300 people fled their homes each day. That's 20 people each minute! This #WorldRefugeeDay, take the time to find out more about this ongoing humanitarian crisis. The new interactive Global Trends Report from UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency is a great place to start:
