Do you have Jamaican parents, grandparents or an elderly friend from the Caribbean? If so please help them by signing this petition.
North west London is grossly underrepresented in a petition to save elderly Caribbean people who are at risk of deportation, but you can help change this.
A petition seeking ‘Amnesty for anyone who was a minor that arrived In Britain between 1948 to 1971’ has been created by Patrick Vernon OBE. This action is in response to the rising cases of deportation of many Commonwealth citizens who have been unaccounted for as rules to citizenship and immigration policy have changed over the years.
This petition went live on the 6th April 2018 and in just 3 days has received almost 4,000 signatures from across the UK. The majority of signatures have come from constituencies based in north, east and south London. Unfortunately to date, there has been a lack of support for this petition in west and north-west London.
The breakdown of signatures by constituency across London is as follows:
- Hackney North and Stoke Newington – 81
- Hackney South – 55
- Hornsey and Wood Green – 55
- Croydon north – 54
- Camberwell and Peckham – 51
- Lewisham, Deptford – 47
- Brent Central – 37
- Brent North – 29
- Hampstead and Kilburn – 25
