Windrush Scandal 5th Anniversary Candlelit Vigil 6 4 23
“We will always remember the Windrush generation and their descendants.”
Held on Thursday, 6 April 2023, at Windrush Square in Brixton - the gathering was held to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the exposing of the Windrush scandal, to remember those who have been affected by the fallout from the Windrush scandal, and to offer comfort to those who have lost loved ones, whilst not forgetting the journey ahead of us in terms of the equity in social justice.
The vigil was a time of commemoration, remembrance, prayer, motivation, and lighting candles for justice, with campaigners, activists, advocates, victims, faith leaders, survivors & local politicians.
"It is poignant that the Windrush scandal was exposed prior to Windrush 70, and at this time of Windrush 75, we are still seeking justice for the Windrush generation.
However, currently, we see the importance of coming together in order to support each other, and also to commence, that all important healing process by uplifting each other for the journey ahead."
The organisers: Patrick Vernon OBE, Windrush Lives, Friends of Windrush Square, Justice for Windrush Generations, Northampton Windrush Generation and Descendants UK, Glenda Caesar, and The Windrush National Organisation.

More background on the Windrush scandal and its wider implications:
It seems that from as far back as the 1970s, people from former UK Colonies who had the right to be considered ‘British Citizens’ were wrongly ‘locked out’ from the UK,
