IT’S NICE TO BE IMPORTANT, BUT MORE IMPORTANT TO BE NICE.
For those that don’t know my name, it is Clarence Bradshaw, and my moniker is Ishu. I am a musician and I have been living and performing in London since 1989. For those that don’t know my situation, over the last 10 years I have been fighting for my right to remain in this country: a place I recognise as my home.
Following the UK Brexit referendum in summer 2016, I was informed by the UK Home Office that my application to be here, was refused, for a second time. I am now awaiting my last chance, to plead my case in front of a judge, before probable forced deportation.
Back in 2011, a music benefit gig was held, and to those involved, I can not thank you all enough for this. The contributions from supporters went to secure a legal team, to deal with my ‘right to stay’. This is the only reason why I am still here today.
Now here we are in 2017 and there is limited time left. I must find a barrister and solicitor to fight my case at appeal, before it is too late. Any financial or legal support could afford me my citizenship. 28 years is apparently not valid reason.
This is why I look to you for support, again, at my darkest hour. But I ask for Empowerment, Not Pity. On Sat. 20th of May 2017 at the FOX AND FIRKIN, Lewisham, there will be a benefit gig to raise support and awareness to my situation. All proceeds and donations will fund my legal case against deportation.
Kids welcome until 8pm / Food on sale / Proper Friendly Vibes
