Gurkha Campaign by Spursfan on 25 October 2008 3:14pm
 
Can I ask you to sign this petition? It is for all retired Gurkas to be able to live here. (More info here).

http://www.gurkhajustice.org.uk/

My father fought alongside the Gurkas in Burma during World War II and until the end of his life in 1980 he was full of praise and admiration for them. He would be shocked and saddened that they are being treated in this way.

We have a Gurkha base here in Stafford, and I also visited Nepal a few years ago, where they are from.

Please sign and stop this injustice.

Thank you.

Anne

I've already signed it and agree with it wholeheartedly.

Joanna Lumley has been doing a lot of campaigning on their behalf, it's a disgrace that they're treated like this.

She is on the link I've posted, Johnny.

Here's a Borough Council press release when the Gurkhas arrived (and are now based on the RAF Stafford site quite near me)

Anyway, please sign!!

I have signed the petition. It's disgusting the way they have been treated.
