Good evening, I wonder if I could draw your attention to the Gurkha Justice Petition?
I feel that as it is near Rememberance Day, it is even more poignant to help the Gurkhas and their families, who have selflessly given their all, for our country.
Please read the attached e.mail that I received from Joanna Lumley, and take a few moments to sign this petition.
I thank you in advance.

Thank you so much for signing the Gurkha Justice petition, and joining our

Already, tens of thousands of people have signed: an extraordinary response
in support of an extraordinary group of people. We've had great coverage
for the campaign in the media across the world, and with excellent support
from our UK papers.

We must be clear. We're not looking for a Government "review" of cases of
ex-Gurkhas. We're not looking at a slight amendment in the law, a way of
getting around the High Court's terrific judgement last week.

We demand the full, fundamental change in law that will allow all retired
Gurkhas the right to live here.

In November, I plan to go to Downing Street and present the Gurkha Justice
petition to the Government on your behalf. I want the petition to be so
big, so huge, that they simply can't fail to listen.

To make the biggest possible impact, we really need more people to sign:
lots more. I want this to be one of the biggest petitions ever handed to
the Government, to show our support for the Gurkha cause.

Your support for the campaign is a fantastic boost: thank you so much. But,
if possible, I need to ask you to help in two other ways, to encourage
others to sign.

Firstly, ask all of your friends and colleagues to sign up to the Gurkha
Justice Campaign at www.gurkhajustice.org.uk - please do forward them this
email, or email or contact them directly yourself.

And secondly, you can now download a petition form for signing from
www.gurkhajustice.org.uk/gurkha_campaign_petition_form.pdf. Please download
and print some copies, and ask friends and colleagues who have not signed
on line to sign up. Please do pass it round (some friends of mine have run
street stalls asking people for their signatures - I'm not asking you to
go that far!) and return completed sheets to me at the address on the form
by the end of October.

Finally - thank you again for your support. Together, we can finally right
this wrong.

With warmest good wishes,

Joanna Lumley
