"Chagos Islanders May Finally Return Home" Allgov Article of Chagossian Campaign

Keeping our focus on the other side of the Atlantic, US Government scrutiny news site Allgov has published a new article on the fight of the All GovChagossian people to return home.

The short piece takes quotes from this website about the heartlessness of the deportation and the appalling conditions of exile. It also notes the comments of Chagos Islands All-Party Parliamentary Group Coordinator David Snoxell to The Observer that failure to restore the right of return was becoming “inconceivable.”

With the agreement allowing the US use of Diego Garcia set to expire in 2016, anything our American friends can do ensure the US Government accept their moral responsibility to the Chagossian people is hugely appreciated. We need to raise awareness all around the world.

Of course Diego Garcia and the other Chagos Islands in the end remain British Overseas Territories. The responsibility for their future then in the final reckoning lies with the UK Government who should insist any extension of the deal is conditional on US support for Chagosssian return.
