Show solidarity with asylum seekers and immigrants
TUESDAY 6 January 1-2pm
Outside the UK Immigration Service Communications House
210 Old Street, London , EC1V 9BR (nearest tube – Old Street )
To show vile Immigration Minister Phil Woolas that not everyone shares his racist views.
To protest against mass deportations to northern Iraq, Afghanistan, which have continued through 2008, and to Democratic Republic of Congo, which without strong opposition will resume following the unsuccessful Court of Appeal Country Guidance case (BK) in December
To campaign against all immigration controls. Britain is a wealthy country and has built that wealth by robbing the poor of the world. It then turns on those who come from poor countries to seek asylum or a better life.
To let the public know what Communications House is. The building looks anonymous but immigration reporting centres are places of fear for asylum seekers, who have to report to them monthly, weekly or even several time s a week. They are places of detention and qualify for inspection by the Chief Inspector of Prisons (see http://inspectorates.homeoffice.gov.uk/hmiprisons/inspect_reports/STHF-reports/2007-Communications_House_f1.pdf)
Monthly demonstration called by Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! All welcome.
