Ciudadanos europeos en apuro
Les adjunto un escrito que saldrá a partir del viernes en varios periódicos digitales, por si les pudiera servir

La Unión Europea ni puede ni debe abandonar a sus ciudadanos



La situación en que se encuentran muchos ciudadanos británicos tras el resultado del referéndum de Gran Bretaña es algo que nos concierne a todos los ciudadanos de la Unión Europea, también a España, como país, y sobre todo a la UE y a sus instituciones.

¿Por qué esto nos concierne a todos?
Se trata de unos ciudadanos europeos que adquirieron la ciudadanía de la UE el día que Gran Bretaña entró en la UE. Gracias a la ciudadanía europea adquirieron, entre otros, el derecho a moverse libremente y de establecerse en cualquier país de la UE. Muchos de ellos, haciendo uso de este derecho, tomaron unas decisiones que han marcado su vida: se trasladaron a España, compraron casa aquí y en otros países, etc, etc. Y ahora resulta que sin haber tomado ellos la decisión y sin haber incurrido en ninguna pena que los pueda privar de la ciudadanía europea, dejan de ser ciudadanos de la UE en contra de su voluntad.

Los tratado de la UE y la jurisprudencia nos dicen únicamente que se pierde la ciudanía europea cuando se pierde la ciudanía nacional, pero en ninguna parte aparece que se pueda perder la ciudadanía europea contra la propia voluntad, porque el gobierno o una mayoría de ciudadanos decidan decida separarse de la UE. Los ciudadanos que votaron corta el Brexit, no han perdido la ciudadanía británica. Los que hayan votado a favor del Brexit, es lógico que pierdan la ciudadanía europea, porque así lo han decidido, pero los que han votado a favor de la permanencia, no pueden ser privados de unos derechos personales porque a otros señores se les antoje. Se trata de derechos personales e individuales que solamente por renuncia o por la imposición de una pena pueden desaparecer

Esto da pie a otra consideración también seria. No quisiera por un lado aburriros con argumentos jurídicos pero, por otro, quisiera daros una idea general de lo que significa ser ciudadano europeo. Lamentablemente son muchas las personas que ni siquiera saben que existe una ciudadanía europea y somos muy pocos los que procuramos hacer una labor formativa e informativa sobre la UE. Estamos ante un problema de gran transcendencia.

“Será ciudadano de la Unión toda persona que tenga la nacionalidad de un Estado miembro”. Art. 9 del Tratado de la UE.

Somos ciudadanos de la UE todos los ciudadanos de los Estados miembros, y esos ciudadanos británicos que en contra de su voluntad corren peligro de verse privados de muchos derechos y enormemente perjudicados son “CONCIUDADANOS NUESTROS”. Y lo mismo que protestaríamos si a unos españoles se los privara de sus derechos sin causa justa, debemos protestar porque a cualquier británico se le prive de sus derechos como ciudadano de la UE.

Muchos ciudadanos británicos se adhirieron a la UE y han decidido continuar en ella

“La ciudadanía europea se basa en un compromiso mutuo de abrir las comunidades políticas respectivas a los otros ciudadanos europeos y de construir una nueva forma de solidaridad cívica y política a escala europea”.

A la UE se adhieren los Estados pero también las personas. La UE no es sólo ni principalmente una unión de Estados, sino una unión de personas “una integración cada vez más estrecha de los ciudadanos de Europa”. La salida de un Estado de la UE ¿tiene que conllevar necesariamente la salida de los ciudadanos que no lo deseen? A mi entender, no necesariamente. Nadie puede ser privado de sus derechos individuales en contra de su voluntad.

Por tanto, el Estado inglés a través de su gobierno ha roto los lazos con la UE, pero los ciudadanos que han votado a favor de la permanencia no han roto esos lazos.

¿Qué hacer, por tanto, ante esta injusticia?

Los ciudadanos de los todos los países de la UE debemos salir en defensa de los ingleses contrarios a la salida. Son nuestros conciudadanos.

La UE, a través del la Comisión y del Parlamento Europeo, debe buscar una solución para que estos ciudadanos británicos puedan conservar sus derechos en cuanto ciudadanos europeos. Son ellos, y sobre todo el Parlamento europeo, los que deben defender los derechos de los ciudadanos.

España y los demás países de la UE deben ofrecer sin restricción alguna y sin demora a los británicos partidarios de la permanencia en la UE la posibilidad de tener la doble ciudadanía, porque esa sería una forma de solucionar este problema

Pero no sólo a los británicos que están residiendo en España se debe ofrecer esta posibilidad, sino a todos los ciudadanos británicos que lo deseen, aunque estén residiendo en Gran Bretaña, porque estos también se ven privados de muchos derechos individuales en contra de su voluntad y que habían adquirido por ser ciudadanos europeos. Y no tengáis miedo, los británicos xenófobos y nacionalistas no lo van a solicitar.

Por sentencias similares sobre la ciudadanía europea del Tribunal de Justicia de la UE podemos deducir que la batalla está ganada. No es nada utópico lo que estoy diciendo.

Fraud
Hello I have received a call from David Miles who says he s calling from the British consulate, he says he is calling because I was on a list of names that have been defrauded by Freewall solutions and if I call a Natalie Sanchez from the Malaga branch of Unicarja, Then she will get me my money back because, Freewall solutions were taken to court on the 10th of December and charged and convicted of fraud and Money laundering. I phoned Natalia Sanchez on Number 0034603344853, and she explained they were charged and convicted of money laundering and the court has charge of their bank account and is to be used to refund fraudulent claims and as i'm on the list I have been awarded 26,237.29 euros, but the main bank in Madrid will stop the payment going through until the tax has been paid 8% and I need to pay this before any monies are released, once I get the money by bank transfer, then I can claim the tax back as I'm a British citizen, and we will not have to pay tax. This appears to be another scam, just thought you might like to know, could you let me know if this is a con or genuine.

pension rights and social security for UK ex pats in Spain
I have been a resident in Spain for 14 years, currently living in Almonaster la Real, Huelva. Two years ago my (english) wife died, and through the office of the Social Security (here in Aracena) I was awarded a widow’s pension by the spanish government. However, as I didn’t have enough NI contributions, the UK government (under the EU reciprocal agreement) was asked to pay, from my wife’s considerable contributions paid when we lived there. After waiting an entire year for a response, and receiving none, it was discovered they hadn’t bothered to reply because in the UK there is no widow’s pension for men. This is not correct. First, they had a duty to respond. Second, the spanish law applies here, not what happens in the UK (where there are other benefits to claim instead). If it was the other way round the spanish government would be expected and pressed to pay. Sadly for me the staff at the office here didn’t want to do that, so I ended up with a piece of paper say I had a pension (with the exact amount payable each month calculated from my wife’s earnings in the UK) but nothing else. They did suggest though that I visit my local office of the Servicio Sociales. I was by then (and still am) living with no income and no connection to mains electricity/ water/ sewage. The only thing they could offer was to make an application for emergency financial aid under the “PROGRAMA DE SOLIDARIDAD DE LOS ANDALUCES! This was 11 months ago. Today I received the news that despite having sent the correct documentation SIX times (twice posted by the office of Servicio Sociales) they are still claiming to have never received it all, and the file has been closed. I now have to re-apply from scratch, once more re-sending all the documents. I asked the worker if this would mean that I would receive help, to which he replied it was never going happen, nobody to his knowledge has ever received money from this programme. Instead they claim papers get lost, get you to re-send them, and eventually applicants simply get tired of the hassle and waiting.
Meanwhile I have been totally dependent on the goodwill and charity of local people. Stunned at the way I have been treated, how powerless I am, especially when everyone in authority has assured me I have the right to these benefits.
Is there anything anyone can suggest to get what I am entitled to?

I have been living as a couple with my argentinian partner for 13 years here in spain.
He arrived originally contracted to an argentinian company and thereafter had 2 spanish contracts.However in recent years he has found that no Spanish company would contract him and we have not been able to go to argentina which we wished to do.
We have been waiting for his wife in argentina to divorce him which was finalized last week in order to get the pareja de hecho document for him to stay as advised by his abogado.She had also applied to immigration to let him leave voluntarily if he wished and not to be given an expulsion order.all this was ignored and a week ago he disappeared on the saturday,i was extremely worried and eventually contacted on the following monday by the police who gave me and my 2 children 30 minutes to pack a bag for him to fly to argentina.He was not allowed his abogado or the right to call us and as you can imagine this has been extremely traumatizing for all of us.I was allowed 3 minutes to say goodbye.
If I went to argentina and we married there can he come back to spain legally?
