justice for gurkhas

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by babystew, Oct 9, 2008.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. just recieved this.Thank you so much for signing the Gurkha Justice petition, and joining our

    Already, over 33,000 people have signed: an extraordinary response in support
    of an extraordinary group of people. We've had great coverage for the
    campaign in the media across the world, and with excellent support from our
    UK papers.

    We must be clear. We're not looking for a Government "review" of cases of
    ex-Gurkhas. We're not looking at a slight amendment in the law, a way of
    getting around the High Court's terrific judgement last week.

    We demand the full, fundamental change in law that will allow all retired
    Gurkhas the right to live here.

    In November, I plan to go to Downing Street and present the Gurkha Justice
    petition to the Government on your behalf. I want the petition to be so big,
    so huge, that they simply can't fail to listen.

    To make the biggest possible impact, we really need more people to sign: lots
    more. I want this to be one of the biggest petitions ever handed to the
    Government, to show our support for the Gurkha cause.

    Your support for the campaign is a fantastic boost: thank you so much. But,
    if possible, I need to ask you to help in two other ways, to encourage others
    to sign.

    Firstly, ask all of your friends and colleagues to sign up to the Gurkha
    Justice Campaign at www.gurkhajustice.org.uk - please do forward them this
    email, or email or contact them directly yourself.

    And secondly, you can now download a petition form for signing from
    www.gurkhajustice.org.uk/gurkha_campaign_petition_form.pdf. Please download
    and print some copies, and ask friends and colleagues who have not signed
    on line to sign up. Please do pass it round (some friends of mine have run
    street stalls asking people for their signatures - I'm not asking you to
    go that far!) and return completed sheets to me at the address on the form
    by the end of October.

    Finally - thank you again for your support. Together, we can finally right
    this wrong.

    With warmest good wishes,

    Joanna Lumley
    for the Gurkha Justice Campaign

  2. Also recieved same.

    If you are on facebook or Flickr or any other site why not download the pic and add the web address and pic and ask people to sign.

    33,000 is not a great deal when you think how many are in the armed forces and families etc.
  3. BZ to all involved with this!
