Coverage on 23rd August protest against family division rules, London

Source : Newham Recorder


'Campaigners are protesting in Downing Street later this month over the plight of 4,000 people likely to be denied spouse visas for their foreign-born partners. New rules dictate applicants must earn a minimum £18,600 a year to get a visa for their spouse — but they don’t earn that much. '

Jessica B. :
'I am fighting for my right as a British citizen to be with whoever I wish, regardless of nationality, colour—or how much I earn.

'Our protest on August 23 is to tell the public what is happening to British citizens and the children caught in the middle. We meet at 11am in Parliament Square, march to Downing Street, then up Whitehall to Leicester Square.'
