Rejected petition Justice for the Chagossians now

More details

We the undersigned call on the British Government to work with the US to immediately end the illegal occupation of the Chagos Islands. 10 of the 30 articles of the United Nations declaration of Human Rights are broken every single day. It is time for this outdated act of colonialism to end and for an exiled indigenous population to be allowed to return home.
