We are applying for a Judicial Review against the Home Secretary Priti Patel for refusing to amend the laws which deprived many of their British citizenship, despite them having lived most of their lives in the UK. We are calling for a 'Windrush Act' to ensure no Windrush survivor or their descendents risk being treated as foreigners in their own country in the future.
We are also calling for a minimum £10,000 reparation for all Windrush victims to compensate for what they have already suffered.Read Press Statement 11th january 2021
Anthony Brown’s letter of 22nd June 2020 to the Home Secretary requested the following actions to be taken:
1) All people who were born as either British Subjects prior to 1948 or as Citizens of the UK and Colonies post-1948 and who had been settled in the UK for a period of 5 years by 1 January 1983, should, for the purposes of the Immigration Act 1971 and the British Nationality Act 1981, be treated as having continued to be Citizens of the UK and Colonies throughout this period irrespective of the impact of any independence legislation passed in relation to their countries of origin.
2) An additional payment should be made on top of any compensation to everyone that successfully applies to the Windrush Scheme from the Caribbean who came before 1st January 1973 of £10,000 automatically as a symbolic payment of reparation for the harm cited in recommendation (1) of the Wendy Williams Windrush Lessons Learned Review.Read Press Statement 5th January 2021

The UK Passport Office said that Sekeena's daughter is not a British Citizen or British National, even though both Sekeena and her daughter were born in the UK.
Even though Sekeena's father is British, she was told that they only look at the mothers’ lineage, not the father's.
Sekeena's mother came here to the UK in 1962, age 7. She was from St Vincent's, an island in the West Indies which is part of the Commonwealth.
As her mother was not British, this meant that Sekeena and her daughter are not British either and this is why her daughter’s passport was declined.
