A little good news for the Chagossians

Preparations are being made for 102 Chagossians to visit their birth place. They will be there for 12 days and will be accompanied by two priests, a stonemason, a doctor, a nurse and a British official. Plaques marking their visit will be setup at every stop.

However, this is not the end of their struggle. In fact, it is only the beginning. It is a great disgust to hear over and over again that re-settling these people is not worthy of British tax payers' money. It is a real sadness to know that the British Government does not respect its own institutions, especially the High Court.

Please spread the words in any way you that suits you, my friends. Let the world know the suffering of these poor people - people who were living peacefully on their land and flushed out by the British.
