Stop the deportations: A Society for Caribbean Studies Petition for the Windrush Generation

empirewindrushgett_3347461b.jpg

Amnesty for anyone who was a minor that arrived In Britain between 1948 to 1971

Windrush Generation were invited as settlers and as British subjects. Minors also had the right to stay.We call on the government to stop all deportations, change the burden of proof and establish an amnesty for anyone who was a minor.The government should also provide compensation for loss & hurt.

With successive changes in immigration policy and legislation over the last 70 years along with the independence of countries which now form part of the Commonwealth this has created uncertainty and lack of clarity and justice for tens of thousands of individuals who have worked hard, paid their taxes and raised children and grandchildren and who see Britain as their home.

  1. Firmly believe if applied would create an enormous feeling of betrayal. The solution lies with clarity, knowledge and understanding

  2. I totally agree that the treatment of the “Windrush” children has been appalling and the Tory government should be thoroughly ashamed of its racist policies.
    Like you I want more people to sign the petition to show our support for Amnesty. Even though the government have said they will fix the problem, what they really want is for the media spotlight to go away. Please share my tweet and renew your appeal to get people to sign the petition.
