The EMPIRE mentality is alive and kicking in Westminster and they dont give a stuff about who gets hurt,or displaced .
In 1968 a Labour government commenced a programme, similar, in a way, to the Highland Clearances, in the Chagos Islands which is in the middle of the Indian Ocean. They forcibly evicted the population and leased the land to the U.S. government. This Labour government was voted out, in 1970, but Ted Heath and his Tories continued the evictions. By 1974 the last Chagossians were gone from the islands.
In 2006 the British High Court ruled that the evictions were illegal.
So, what has been done to correct this? On 22 May 2019, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a resolution reaffirming the Court’s conclusions and demanding that the United Kingdom unconditionally withdraw its administration by 22 November 2019. However, “the response of the United Kingdom to these developments has been one of outright defiance,” said the representative of Mauritius, adding that the administering Power, the U.K., has made it clear that it does not intend to comply.
Well, dear slave trade excusers, this is happening RIGHT NOW! How does your conscience sit with this? Still think the BLM are overstating their case? By the way the population of these islands was BLACK !!
