Physical Description

This leaflet was produced by NALGO (National and Local Government Officers Association) in a campaign to prevent Georgina Addai's deportation. Georgina moved to Hackney from Ghana in 1984 and worked for Hackney Council as a residential social worker. She worked for 6 years on a series of temporary visas but after her husband left, she and her son lost the right to remain in the UK. The campaign urges supporters to write to Diane Abbott MP, the Home Office and to raise the issue with church groups and trade unions, or to contribute financially to the campaign. NALGO were challenging the deportation on the basis that the current laws were biased against Georgina because of her race.
