Petition: Let the Chagos islanders return home
The Labour Friends of Chagos Islanders have set up a petition calling for the Prime Minister to allow the Chagos islanders to return home. It’s already got dozens of signatures. You can read it in full and sign it here.
Meanwhile, in the light of recent statements from the Foreign Office (see here and here) about the government’s position on resettlement of the Chagos islands and the establishment of a Marine Protected Area, this association makes the following statement:
The UK Chagos Support Association would condemn in the strongest possible terms any reversal of commitments made to the Chagossian cause by the coalition parties. We are seeking clarification of the position and remain committed to working with the UK government to establish the right to return.
