National Windrush Day of Action
The National Windrush Day of Action takes place on Windrush Day, 22nd June.
It has been organised by BAME Lawyers for Justice which is made up of BARAC UK and an umbrella of other race equality and Windrush justice groups.
7 cities are officially taking part:
But more are taking place unofficially. If you cannot get to any of the participating cities we invite you to do a photocard opportunity in solidarity and post to our social media.

In London we will be assembling 11am opposite Downing Street and marching to Westminster Bridge for a mass banner drop over the bridge.
Here is further info plus flyers for the events this Saturday. We welcome your participation and think it is crucial given the gross injustice, discrimination and misery that people of the Windrush generation and their multi-generation families as well as people from other commonwealth / former commonwealth countries are experiencing because of the hostile environment, that we protest on 22nd June and send a strong message to the government.
We recognise that some people will wish to celebrate on the day and if that is the case we encourage you to #demonstratethencelebrate. For others the idea of celebrations in the midst of such injustice and inhumanity is insulting at this given time.
