Windrush Day 2022

I was delighted to join the Windrush Day celebrations in Brixton this morning. Today we celebrate the immense contribution the Windrush pioneers and their descendants have made and continue to make to our local community, economy, culture and public services since the arrival of the Windrush at Tilbury docks, 74 years ago.  

It is also an important moment to reflect on the racism and injustices they have faced over the past 74 years, and the on-going struggle for justice of those who became victims of the Windrush Scandal.  We celebrate, but we also stand in solidarity and we will continue to fight for justice and compensation and for the culture change we need to ensure that such a scandal can never happen again #windrushday #brixton #windrushjustice
