*Support the Chagos Islanders.

Please add your name. These islanders were forcibly removed from their island.Between 1965 and 1973 the former inhabitants of the Chagos archipelago in the centre of the Indian Ocean were expelled from their homeland to make way for a joint UK and US military base on the island Diego Garcia. They have ever since fought compensations and their right to return.

A reminder about the petition at Number 10: please will you sign this and ask your friends and contacts to do the same?

When they reach 500 signatures, the government are obliged to reply. The deadline is 23rd September.
