LICBN Meeting 08 Nov 2016 - Xábia Andy MacDonald MP Shadow Transport Secretary Guest Speaker




PS: At our November 2016 the meeting, Labour International Costa Blanca welcomed two Xabia PSOE counsellors and received a copy of a resolution moved by the Mayor of Xabia, Jose Chulvi, and carried unanimously at a plenary session of the Ayuntamiento.

The resolution is attached, and comprises a background to the motion and the motion itself - - click to view

We really appreciated the support for British citizens which has been given by the Ayuntamiento and share their wish to respect equally the social and political rights of Spanish citizens resident in the UK. The example set in the small town of Xabia serves as a model for the kind of treatment we would wish to see replicated throughout the U.K.

Please share this document with as many friends and colleagues in Labour Party branches and Trade Unions as you can. Fraternally, Moira John (Chair of the Meeting)
