THE SCANDAL OF ATTACKS ON THE WINDRUSH GENERATION

Posted on

Luke Daniels, Chair of Caribbean Labour Solidarity spoke at our September meeting.
He said that the way the Windrush generation and their families are treated reminded him of slavery! The whole
ideology of racism is behind the Windrush scandal. People came to the UK thinking they were British. They
worked in the NHS, on the buses and other services; then found themselves on the hit-list for deportation! Slavery
ended, but the slaves were thrown out whilst compensation was paid to the slave owners. There should be reparations
for slavery, starting with an apology. It is now important that pressure is kept up on the government over
the Windrush scandal. Many of those who lost their rights to a job, pensions, a home and health care have died
— others are now old and have “lost” many years.
Caribbean Labour Solidarity meets on the first Sunday of the month at the IPF hall,
1a Providence Court, Providence Place, 12 noon to 2 pm
