Hello folks. For those that don’t know my name, it is Clarence Bradshaw, and my AKA MC 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. before it is too late.
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.
