Together with a few friends I am organising this second informal get-together in Berlin on Thursday 26th May to discuss the impact of a possible UK exit from the European Union on Brits living in Berlin.
*** The event will be streamed here from 1900 CET on 26.05.2016 ***
*** Twitter tag is #BERBritsBrexit ***
26 May – 19:00–22:00, doors open at 18:45
Aufsturz, Oranienburger Str. 67, 10117 Berlin (map)
There will be a €1 charge to attend – to cover room hire costs.
20000 Brits live in Berlin. We can because EU freedom of movement rights allow us to live here. But what happens if the UK leaves the European Union?
Come along to this informal event to find out:
– what’s the current state of the referendum debate?
– what’s likely to actually happen – will the UK leave?
– if the UK does leave, what then?
– how to register to vote in the EU referendum, and how to overcome the problems with this process
– an update on what we’ve learned since the February event!
From 1845 – gather at “Klub” downstairs at Aufsturz (note earlier start than last time!)
1900 – Part 1: the state of play in the referendum
2000 – break
2030 – Part 2: practicalities in the case of Brexit, and how to register to vote!
2115 – stay for a beer!
Part 1 will be introduced by Mareike Kleine (Associate Professor at London School of Economics – @kleine_m) and Jeremy Cliffe (UK Correspondent of The Economist – @jeremycliffe). Part 2 will be introduced by Jon Worth (Blogger – @jonworth) and Jane Golding (Lawyer).
We’re a bunch of politically concerned Brits organising this. There’s no official organisation helping out. We just think this issue is important, and if you think so too, join us! Please just confirm your attendance at the Facebook event, or fill in the form below!
Politics and language
Please note that this event is non-partisan – we each have our own views about the referendum, and whether what David Cameron is doing is right. Advocates of Remain and Leave will be present. All speeches will be in English. However as all panellists also speak German, questions can be posed in German.
