Description

PLEASE JOIN US AT THIS PUBLIC MEETING

The SS Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury docks on 22 June 1948 carrying passengers from the Caribbean. Men and women were invited by Britain to assist with post-war reconstruction. The pioneering Windrush generation that came to Britain have helped to shape British social, cultural and political life.

The “Hostile environment” created by Theresa May has targeted a generation of people who were invited from Commonwealth countries as UK citizens. They’ve been deported and their rights attacked.

We demand:

All those deported should be entitled to return to Britain immediately.

• An immediate end to deportations and detention of Commonwealth Citizens.

• Guarantee protection of all Commonwealth Citizens.

• All those affected in any way be given compensation for deportation, threats of deportation, detention, loss of housing, jobs, benefits and denial of NHS treatment.

• No hostile environment

Confirmed speakers are:

Diane Abbott, Shadow Home Secretary, MP Hackney North and Stoke Newington

Daniel Kebede, Executive Member, NUT Section, National Education Union

Louise Regan, Ex-President, National Education Union, NUT section

Wilf Sullivan, Race Equality Officer, TUC

Weyman Bennett, Co-Convenor, Stand up to Racism

Kristina Harrison, Show Racism the Red Card

Collette Levy, Holocaust survivor affected by the hostile environment

Join us for a public meeting to show your solidarity AND keep the pressure up for justice.

We must end the hostile environment.
