Gurkha protestorFolkestone and Hythe Parliamentary Campaigner Neil Matthews, Shepway Liberal Democrat Group Leader Lynne Beaumont, Councillor Peter Carroll, Dhan Gurung, Tim Prater, Darren Briddock, Maureen Speller, Season Prater and many others have today joined a reception at Lib Dem conference in Bournemouth organised by the Gurkha Army Ex-Servicemen's Organisation (GAESO).

The reception is part of a week of action which includes a Gurkha Justice Campaign stand in the exhibition, and a major rally in London on Tuesday at the start of a judicial review into the injustices faced by retired Gurkha soldiers.

The Liberal Democrats are supporting the campaign by running street petition stalls across Kent collecting signatures supporting the Gurkha cause.
