The Chagossians are not calling for the removal of the base on Diego Garcia or challenging its existence.
The Chagossians and Let Us Return USA! are asking the US Government to state publicly that it recognizes Chagossians’ basic right to live in their homeland and that it does not oppose the resettlement of Chagossians on Diego Garcia and in the rest of the Chagos Archipelago, with equal rights to work on the base.
The Chagossians and Let Us Return USA! believe that Congress should hold hearings to publicly air the US role in the Chagossians’ exile and current plight and to identify steps the US Government should take to rectify these wrongs.
