  4. Great news, "Ayo Ghurkali"

  6. We took part in the Cambrian March and sent sponsor sheets round for these lads at the time they recieved no pensions. The winners of the march recieved the Gurkha Cup.

    My brother took a form into his local pub and they all told him to piss off until somebody said it was for the Gurkhas then the sheet was filled in minutes.
     
  7. Although the Gurkhas won their test case in the Appeal Court today (Tue 30th September 2008), there is still a long way to go to have the law changed. Please sign the petition.

    The Gurkha Justice Campaign

    Gurkhas are fighting for Justice. They want the same terms and conditions as their UK and Commonwealth counterparts.

    Britain has had no greater friends than the Gurkhas. They have served all across the world in the defence of our Country for nearly 200 years. Over 45,000 died in the two World Wars as part of the British Army. They are still fighting in the British Army today.

    You may have seen in the media that they are fighting in Parliament and the Courts. Step by step, things are getting better - but there is a long way to go.

    Today, we expect judgement from the High Court as to whether their treatment has been unlawful in terms of the right to live in the UK if they retired before 1997.

    Whatever the High Court decides today, the Government has to change the law on how it treats Gurkhas. We demand the full, fundamental change in law that will allow all retired Gurkhas the right to live here.

    By signing up above you will be expressing your support for all Gurkhas. You will be signing our petition, and we will be able to contact you in the future as we mount the largest ever campaign to get them the Justice that they deserve.

    Join me in the campaign: together, we can finally right this wrong.
