Subject: IMPORTANT: Windrush Generation
Thank you for sharing this, Joanna.
In addition to the petition, there is more action to take. Please see message below:
This petition "Amnesty for anyone who was a minor that arrived In Britain between 1948 to 1971" now has 135,000 signatures - enough to spark a parliamentary debate. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/216539
The government are clearly in retreat, yesterday they refused a diplomatic request for a meeting to discuss the issue with Caribbean heads of government.
Today they are saying "Theresa May will hold a meeting with other Commonwealth leaders to "discuss concerns" over the Windrush generation facing deportation from the UK".We can win this battle for human rights.
There is an Early Day Motion in Parliament on the subject. Please write to your Member of Parliament asking him or her to sign it [Early day motion 1145 - COMMONWEALTH CITIZENS AND THE RIGHT TO REMAIN IN THE UK]. https://www.parliament.uk/edm/2017-19/1145
When the parliament discusses the issue, we need to make sure that there is sufficient pressure on the MPs to rectify this injustice.You can find the email address of your Member of Parliament here - https://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/
Please act today - enough damage has been done alread
