Human Rights Watch just published a major report showing that the US + UK governments committed CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY by forcibly displacing the Chagossian people during construction of the US military base on Diego Garcia + barring Chagossians from returning home for more than 1/2 a century.
The report, “That’s When the Nightmare Started," is an unprecedented condemnation of the US + UK by a major human rights organization.
Human Rights Watch calls for full reparations for the Chagossians from the US + UK, including:
1) allowing #Chagossians to return home
2) resettlement assistance
3) proper compensation for 1/2 century of exile
4) official US + UK government apologies
5) public release of documents related to the Chagossians.
