Hundreds gather in south London for a demonstration in solidarity with the so-called Windrush generation. The rally was held in support of those affected and their families at Windrush Square in Brixton. The generation of Caribbean Commonwealth citizens, who arrived in Britain between 1948 and 1971, have been denied healthcare and threatened with deportation despite being residents in the UK for decades. Windrush is a reference to the ship MV Empire Windrush, which arrived at Tilbury Docks, Essex, on 22 June 1948, bringing workers from Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and other islands, as a response to post-war labour shortages in the UK. The ship carried 492 passengers - many of them children.
