“Rest in Power Sister. Paulette Wilson has unexpectedly passed away at age 64.
After coming to the UK as a child from Jamaica in 1968 as a part of what came to be known as the Windrush Generation, who were invited to the UK to help rebuild the country after WW2 and promised citizenship. After being stripped of her rights by the Home Office, she was wrongfully detained and threatened with deportation. Only when her daughter broke her story to the media was she released… She then campaigned for justice for herself and others who were affected by the government’s “hostile environment” policies. A month ago, she was among those who handed in a petition with 130,000 signatures demanding justice for those affected by the #WindrushScandal. The despicable treatment she suffered at the hands of the UK government had taken a toll on her health people close to her said. Patrick Vernon said of her death, “It’s a complete shock… she died a broken woman….. The impact of the hostile environment on her mental health… people, underestimate the impact of the hostile environment, which is based on fear and intimidation”.
She always had the right to be here… and the racist UK government terrorized her to an early grave… She deserved better… Thank you, Sister, for fighting for justice.”
