Judgment on Wednesday

The waiting is almost over: The judgment on the Government’s appeal against the Islanders’ victory last year will be handed down on Wednesday, 23 May at 9.30am in Court 71 at the Royal Courts of Justice.

We hope that the courts will again confirm the Islanders’ right to return to their homeland – if so it will be the third time they have had to do so.

We look forward to seeing as many supporters there as possible. Olivier Bancoult, chairman of the Chagos Refugees Group in Mauritius, will be in London for the ruling.

    Let me be the first to congratulate the Islanders on this stunning victory against the disgusting and desperate policies of Tony Blair’s government.

    I hope the return to Chagos can be swift and everlasting!

    From everyone at FailedState, congratulation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Joshua says:

    May I also my congratulations on the Chagossian victory. This has been too long in coming. Let’s hope Bush and Brown let the Chagossians go home. If we in the US (and the UK) claim to value justice and fair play, then the Chagossians deserve both.
