On the 2nd November 2020, Boris Johnson said there would be a pause on ‘Deportation flights to Jamaica’. Yet, the government continued its deportation flights during the second lockdown. At a time when new isolation restrictions started. Despite a ban on outbound international travel during this time for the public.
The Home Office plans to charter a deportation flight to Jamaica before Christmas. This will put lives at risk as the Covid-19 pandemic rages on, campaigners have warned. And spread the pandemic to those living in Jamaica.
Petitions against the flights are being signed daily. There has now 92,000 people who have signed the petition. The people are protesting that the actions of the government are not right! And it is as if the government could not care less. The government is not willing to go through justified procedures. And seem above their own laws in returning the innocent to Jamaica.
Many who return to Jamaica have not received legal advice.
Families are being torn apart.
Returnees are provided with guidelines; speak like the locals !!
One could ask are we still living in the 1833 rather than 2020. Just to recap!
The Slavery Abolition Act, (1833), passed in British history. It was an act of Parliament that abolished slavery in most British colonies. More than 800,000 enslaved Africans in the Caribbean and South Africa as well as a small number in Canada freed. The 'act' received Royal Assent on August 28, 1833, and took effect on August 1, 1834.
It was an ‘act’ that was to change everything. But, it would appear, not much has changed at all.
Please make a change and sign the petition today...
