After the referendum we experienced a mixture of emotions – fear, frustration, anger, a strong feeling of being unwanted. It was sad to see how most of the Leave campaign was focused on immigration, blaming people like us for some of the biggest problems of this country.

We felt it was irresponsible of politicians to pit one section of the population against another for their own interests, not valuing foreign workers like us for the contribution we make to the development of this country.

We are worried that this could greatly affect the peaceful coexistence between nationalities in this diverse and multicultural society.
