  • The local group will attend an Emancipation Day rally in Brixton demanding new legislation to bring justice for the Windrush generation and their descendants who had their British citizenship revoked.
  • Sunday is the anniversary of the 1833 Emancipation Act which outlawed slavery across the British Empire. Almost two centuries on the rally in Max Roach Park in Brixton will support calls for another Act of Parliament to repair the damage done by the Windrush Scandal.
  • “The Government needs to realise that this is not going away,” said Glenda Andrew, who will be leading the contingent from Preston.
