Students and residents protest Windrush scandal

first_imgChintha, a demonstrator and Oxford resident, told Cherwell: “You cannot undo the state of trauma and the state of total distress that some families went through – you cannot undo that.“There’s no monetary reward that can take away the pain and the suffering and the sorrow of that period, so even if there is compensation and loads of apologies there’ll still be a lot of very hurt feelings.”Dolcie Obhiozele, a member of the Windrush generation, moved from Jamaica to Oxford with her mother when she was 11. She recalled how both her mother and aunt had worked for New College as cleaning and catering staff.Obhiozele told Cherwell: “Many of the colleges and the University, when I look at it, it is built on our back.”Speaking of fellow Windrush citizens, she said: “These people have worked, and put in here – contributed to the NHS, to their pension. I can’t say how wicked and heartless it is.“[The government] have just taken their money and everything from them, and just throw them out. It really isn’t right.”Some of the protesters expressed disappointment at the low numbers of students who turned out to the demonstration. One protester asked: “This city has lots of students, and where are they today? Why can’t they come out for this?”Louise Zakine, a French woman who has lived in the UK for 15 years, saw the event publicised on Facebook and wanted to show solidarity with the victims.Zakine told Cherwell: “I’m worried for my friends, my French friends in London – I don’t know what will happen to them [after Brexit] so that’s a bit scary. They’ve been in the UK for over 15 years, and they live here.”The leader of Oxford City Council, Susan Brown, condemned the treatment of the Windrush generation as “shameful”.She said: “The way the Government has used its immigration laws to discriminate against the Windrush generation is utterly unacceptable and mean spirited. In Oxford we are proud of the huge contribution that they and other Commonwealth citizens have made to our city.“On behalf of the City of Oxford I know that colleagues across the council will want to say ‘thank you’ to the African Caribbean community, as we do to all the different communities who contribute to the rich diversity of Oxford life.” Oxford students and residents came together on Monday evening to protest the government’s treatment of the Windrush generation.The protest, organised by Oxford Stand Up to Racism, drew a crowd of over 50 people on the corner of Cornmarket and Queen Street.Ian McKendrick, a spokesman for Oxford Stand Up to Racism, told Cherwell that the group was “calling for amnesty for Windrush and other Commonwealth citizens.” He said that the Windrush generation should be compensated for the homes lost, jobs sacrificed, and denied NHS treatment which came out of the government’s “hostile” immigration policy.“We are attacking the whole immigration policy behind [the Windrush scandal] and Theresa May. The problem absolutely goes to the top.“When Theresa May was at the Home Office, she was the architect of the hostile environment immigration policy for migrants. She’s fully complicit.”Donald Norwood – a member of a church in Blackbird Leys, an area of Oxford with a large British Caribbean community– echoed McKendrick’s view. He said the scandal has “created a very nasty atmosphere.”“It’s just not an accident, it was deliberate policy to make people feel uncomfortable.”During the protest, members of the Oxford Windrush group spoke. They noted that 2018 will be the 70th anniversary of the year people from the Caribbean arrived in the UK on Empire Windrush, the ship that gave the generation its name. They announced events to celebrate the lives of members of that generation.To pay tribute to the victims of the Windrush deportations, protesters laid lilies and sang songs, including Civil Rights gospel “We Shall Overcome”.last_img read more

Talking to Children about Sex

first_imgDevelop a good relationship with your children.2Model an appropriate romantic relationship and sexuality with your spouse.3Recognize and take advantage of the teachable moments that arise.1, 3“When something comes on the radio or television about sex, do you turn it off so your children can’t hear? Or do you talk about it?”1Talk about what is happening in children’s sex education classes.2 American College of Pediatricians 25 July 2016Family First Comment: Excellent read. “Parents have the opportunity to protect their children from the potentially harmful consequences of sex, counteract misinformation from other sources, and  communicate their own values regarding sex when they talk to their children about sex and sexuality”Parents can and should have the most significant effect on their children’s sexuality. In today’s world, there are many sources for children to gain information about sexuality and much of that information is not correct. Parents have the opportunity to protect their children from the potentially harmful consequences of sex, counteract misinformation from other sources, and  communicate their own values regarding sex when they talk to their children about sex and sexuality.1 Sadly, there are many parents who do not talk to their children.One study found that parents often perceive certain barriers which discourage them from talking to their children about this topic. These barriers include, but are not limited to, thinking that children are not ready to hear about sex, not knowing how to talk about sex, the parents’ lack of time or energy, the child’s lack of receptivity, parents’ embarrassment or discomfort, not having thought about the need to talk about sex, dysfunction in some families, and language and cultural barriers between parents and children.1 Research has found that when parents overcome these barriers and do talk to their children about sexuality their children have sex at a later age and have better communication with their future romantic partners.So what should parents do?Talk to your children when they are young.1, 3“Before children’s bodies start to change, you need to prepare them for peer pressure. You need to educate them about risks and prepare them for challenges.”1 Create opportunities to talk about sex.2Use religious teachings and the church community as supports.2, 3Some specific things to let your children know…1The facts so they can understand themselves better.That nobody should pressure them to have sex.That you love them.https://www.acpeds.org/talking-to-children-about-sexcenter_img Make it an ongoing conversation.1, 2, 3, 4“The most important thing for a parent and child in sexual health is open communication.”1, 2last_img read more

BCCI gets Mohammed Shami’s Visa Approved

first_imgNew Delhi: The US visa of Indian pacer Mohammed Shami, who is part of the India squad for the upcoming West Indies tour, got rejected initially because of his existing police record and charges of domestic violence. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) intervened to get the issue sorted and the visa was given to the fast bowler. Speaking to IANS, a senior BCCI functionary said that Shami’s visa had been rejected due to the police records after the family problems that the player had gone through, but the board wrote to the embassy and the matter was cleared. “There was some issue with the police verification part as he was involved in a problem with his wife. But the BCCI then wrote to the embassy and the matter was sorted,” the functionary said. IANSAlso Read: BCCI Officials Want Ravi Shastri To Continue As Head Coachlast_img read more
