There's a petition to remove Clause 9 from the Nationality and Borders Bill. This is the clause that says government can take people's UK citizenship away without even bothering to tell them.

If it gets 100,000 signatures, Parliament has to debate it. A debate is urgently needed after the Bill was rushed through last night in just a few minutes.

I've been watching the number of signatories climbing this morning and it's already over 42,000. Please sign and share to get it there!
