Gurkha Justice Campaign

Sent to me by Moose:


Dear Friend,


Just a quick note to again thank you for your support and update you on the

Gurkha Justice Campaign -


With over 80,000 signatures and rising, we are still getting thousands of new

supporters every day. We're still working to get the message out about the

campaign - last week Al Murray gave us a tremendous boost on his show Al

Murray's Happy Hour.


If you haven't already done so, PLEASE pass on our need for signatures to

everyone you know and ask them to do likewise. Please send it to your address

book. We really need this campaign to spread all across the country - like



This week I'm pleased to say there will be adverts in the next few days in

a number of newspapers including the Daily Mail, Guardian and Telegraph

promoting the campaign.


We've had some great stories from supporters across the country, from

people collecting signatures at car boot sales and street stalls, to people

putting links on their web sites and telling all their friends - it is making


big difference. Thank you so much to all those who have written and emailed -

there are so many we simply can't reply to all of them personally, so please

forgive us. I PROMISE they are being read and appreciated.


The huge number of messages of support and offers of help have been fantastic,

but we still really need more help. If possible, can you can help us get the

message out in the following ways:


1. If you have a blog, web site, Facebook page or similar, please put a message

about encouraging people to sign the petition. You

could also post a message in any discussion forums you use online.


2. Print out the form at


and get friends and family to sign. Please make sure you return it to us by 16th November.


3. Pass the message to as many people as you can. Whether you forward this

email to your contact list,

give people a call, or write a letter to your local

paper to ask others to sign the petition at - we really

need your help.


A great example of one supporter promoting our site is a video we saw on

YouTube last week. We found it extremely moving. See what you think at


Finally, a very special date for your diary - 20th November. There will be more

details soon, but we will be handing in the Gurkha Justice petition to Downing

Street on that day. Some special guests and I will be meeting in Parliament

Square at around 11am. Anyone who can come along to join us and show their

support for the Gurkhas campaign in person on that day will be most welcome.


With warmest good wishes,




PS. We've sold hundreds of Gurkha Justice t-shirts and sweatshirts at our

online shop


Thank you to all those who have bought them - I hope you are wearing them with

as much pride as I do mine, and helping spread the message about the campaign.
