Saturday 17th Dec. 12 noon
Peace Gardens Sheffield city centre
Called by the Campaign Against Detention and Deportation of Iraqis
In Sheffield during November, around 200 Iraqi Kurds were evicted from their accommodation by order of the Home Office. Many live with no state support and are not allowed to work. They are afraid to follow Home Office rules to report to police stations: when Karwan reported to Dallas Court in Bolton for an “interview” he was held and deported. This is called kidnapping.
The UK Government is the first in Europe to order forced deportations to Iraq. The UK Home Office is alone in claiming that northern Iraq is “safe”. If Iraq is safe then why does the Government need to evict, starve, kidnap and beat Iraqi Kurds into returning?
Let's demonstrate from all the north of England on December 17th.
