On Wednesday, July 13th, 2022 from 12 noon, campaigners from all over the UK will be lobbying Parliament over the slow progress and the narrowing of the scope of the Windrush Compensation Scheme
Since 2018 The Windrush Generations have been fighting to have their status regularise and compensated as they were promised.
Today we are continuing our fight for justice and for members of parliament to take necessary action to ensure the Home Office process claims more quickly and efficiently.
Global Afrikan Congress UK has kindly offered to support this Lobby and future lobbying until we get MPs and Parliament to take the necessary action required to ensure the Home Office put those that were wronged back in the position they would have been had they not been wronged by the Home Office.
This applies to Windrush Generations and Dependents in the UK, as well as those outside the UK that have been negatively impacted by the Home Office’s policies and actions. Too little attention is paid to those outside of the UK.
On the day there will be a number of speakers including Professor Patrick Vernon, Dr. Juanita Cox, a PhD Student, and other students.
Among the issues, we are seeking changes by the Home Office.
The Windrush Generation and Descendants need to have their status reinstated and compensated much quicker, and this could be if the Home Office is honest and forthright from the outset.
The impact of the Home Office action on the Windrush Generation and Descendants such as;
- Losing their Indefinite Leave To Remain (ILR)
- British citizens are being refused their rights to access the NHS
- Their pension benefit being greatly reduced due to exclusion.
