Today we honour the contributions of the Windrush generation to British society. Due to the callous nature of this government's hostile environment, however, many Windrush migrants have faced severe hardship. It's time they received justice.

Today on I remember my mum who sailed from Jamaica to Britain in 1950 on the SS Ariguani of the Elders and Fyffes shipping line. She was part of the generation that helped to build our NHS

My mum and I just had a conversation about the trauma that a lot of older West Indians feel, a lot of them only wanted to come to Britain for a few years and go back, when they got here they soon found they couldn’t afford it.

This video is an insult from the person who created the hostile environment that deported Black British citizens. We don’t need May’s empty rhetoric. We need justice & compensation We need May to resolve ALL outstanding cases & end the racist hostile environment now.

To everyone in fear of being deported back to the Caribbean, those in detention or soon to be shackled into their aeroplane seats for a long enforced journey 'home'. After being born here, living here and paying taxes here for decades - happy Windrush Day!!!

Today is so here is a picture of my great grandparents and my grandfather who came to the UK in 1954 as part of the Windrush generation. And a fun fact, my middle name is Lambert which was my great grandfather's first name and my great grandmother's maiden name. 🇯🇲

After deporting my people you’re now giving me permission to celebrate them? We already have an event, it’s called Notting Hill Carnival and this government has tried for 50yrs to give it a bad reputation or stop it altogether. The next move is for to replace it.

"London, is the place for me." Only if you're a white EVW. Not if you're a black war veteran. What a nation we've become. Shameful stuff.

Happy Mr & Mrs Thomas senior. They took a risk to leave Jamaica & help rebuild this country. They worked tirelessly in all weathers in our NHS, Steel & Transport industries. Racism rife, they raised their family of 6 & succeeded against odds. Talk about resilience?

A flash protest for brings Westminster Bridge to a standstill. Yet the police come by and the banner is quietly moved out of the way. Disciplined, friendly, well organised. Well done!

Bringing to a close this year's celebrations, today's thanksgiving in Newport is a tribute to the efforts & sacrifices of generations. A wonderful breadth of events have taken place, with the emphasis on telling the story of Windrush in many different ways. Diolch.

My heart breaks we learn that a victim of the Windrush scandal Richard Stewart has died without receiving an apology or any compensation. This is a disgrace. The Tories still refuse to tell us how many people have been affected & how many outstanding cases.

2day on I remember my parents who sailed here. I come from a lineage of people who fought to keep our culture, traditions & shackles off our feet. I come from foremothers & forefathers who survived. 2day & every day I’m grateful they never gave up
