Undocumented Caribbean residents - the uncertain status of Commonwealth citizens in UK: 1 May

The APPG on Race and Community is delighted to invite you to: Undocumented Caribbean residents - the uncertain status of Commonwealth citizens in UK

70 years since Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury, Caribbean migrants who have lived and worked for over 40 years in the UK are being threatened with detention, deportation and denied access to life-saving services. As Britain looks to the Commonwealth as potential post-Brexit trade partners, we will discuss the Caribbean residents in Britain whose futures are on hold.

1st May 2018

House of Commons | Committee Room 10

4pm - 5.30pm

Chaired by Rt. Hon. David Lammy MP, speakers will include:

  • Amelia Gentleman, Reporter at The Guardian, who has brought the most high-profile cases to the public's attention
  • Sally Daghlian, CEO Praxis, the charity supporting Albert Thompson's case, the Londoner being refused urgent cancer treatment, and 120 further cases
  • His Excellency Guy Hewitt, Barbados High Commissioner
  • Undocumented Caribbean residents who will share their story

The event will provide the opportunity for parliamentarians, policy makers, NGOs and those effected to discuss the best way forward to protect life-long residents from the unjustified uncertainty they are facing.

The session will end with a Q&A discussion.

Please do share through your networks.
