Fighting for Justice: 2012 - today: Fatima

Waling-Waling (WW) fought and won a campaign from 1984 – 1997 gaining basic rights for Migrant Domestic Workers. We have reconvened in 2017 to Reclaim our Rights.
In April 2012, Teresa May, then Home Secretary in the coalition government, stripped migrant domestic workers of these rights. She said they would be ‘protected’ under the Modern Slavery Act.
We now have workers without rights but with a promise of ‘protection’ thereby creating ‘victims’ of us workers. Our experience over the years since 2012 shows clearly that there is no protection for us under the Modern Slavery Act.
