Here are some of the highlights (if that is the right word) of the demonstration outside the Home Office last week, (Tuesday 9 July). It is a succession of stories from people affected by the Rules that were introduced a year beforehand. We'll let the people on the film do the talking for themselves:
Habib Rahman, Chief Exec of JCWI was this month given an award in recognition of his long running service to the cause of migrants in the UK. The Society of Bangladeshi Lawyers made the award at their annual dinner in London over 300 people attended. Habib has worked as Chief Exec of JCWI for 12 years having previously served as chair of the organisation.
In attendance at the dinner were the High Commissioner of Bangladesh in London, Mohamed Mijarul Quayes and Lutfur Rahman, the Mayor of Tower Hamlets.
9 July marked the first anniversary of the divisive and cruel family immigration rules, and was marked by a very successful day of action in and around Parliament. It also came at the end of a period of about a month that saw the campaigning take great leaps forward.
Marking the first anniversary of the ferocious family immigration restrictions, we’re keeping up the pressure on decision makers. There’s been a good amount of publicity about the restrictions over recent weeks, thanks largely to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Migration’s report into the rules, the subsequent debates and a number of media exposes on different aspects of the rules and what people can do to unite their families in the UK. This is an excellent opportunity to keep up the pressure.
