Amnesty for African CommonWealth nationals who have stayed for more than 10 years!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!
The Ghanaians and Commonwealth nationals in the UK are urging the Ghana High Commissioner, H. E. Papa Owusu-Ankomah, and all the MPs and Ministers who stand for human rights and justice and are the representatives for their countries to add their voices to the ongoing campaign and proposal by the Foreign Secretary and other Organisations like Amnesty International, calling on the UK Government to grant amnesty to the nationals of the other Commonwealth Countries who have remained in the UK for at least 10 years, after the revelation of the Windrush scandal.
Most Ghanaians, as well as many African commonwealth citizens in the UK, have spent over 10 years of their lives here, but the punitive and hostile immigration laws in the UK have robbed them of the opportunity to apply for leave to remain under any of the limited categories within the immigration laws.
A vast majority of them are well-respected citizens who have lived their lives well in the UK without any criminal convictions.
We urge our leaders to rise and fight for the interests of our people and citizens of the Commonwealth.
If the Caribbean leaders had kept quiet over the mistreatment meted out to their citizens by the UK Government, the scandalous issues and the extreme injustice surrounding the Windrush would have been ignored.
We remind the UK Government to consider the immense contributions made by the members of the Commonwealth countries from the African continent and treat their citizens with equality and respect.
We entreat the Ghana High Commissioner, the High Commissioners of the other Commonwealth countries and all the MPs and Ministers who care for humanity to use their good offices to enter into a dialogue with the leaders of the other Commonwealth nationals from the African Continent, to bring pressure to bear on the Prime Minister of the UK to secure a just deal for all the Commonwealth nationals who have been resident in the UK for at least 10 years.
Ghana and for that matter, Africans are crying for justice within the UK immigration system for her citizens living in the UK.
We hope our voices will be heard through our leaders.
