Petition Action

Chagos Islanders - Repatriation & Reparation

Additional Information

We request that the government acknowledges the gross injustice inflicted on the the inhabitants of the Diego Garcia by the shameful expulsion of those people from that island and the compulsory relocation of those people to the Seychelles and Mauritius and that this action contravened their human rights and contravened the United Nation charter on removal of indiginous peoples and that the government will:-
a. make proper arrangements for those born on Diego Garcia and their children to visit the island.
b. Properly compensate those forced to leave Diego Garcia.
