Parallel to this, inside the detainees are protesting and trying to resist being taken onto the coach. 1 person, not currently in Colnbrook but who is scheduled to be on the flight is now entering his 13th day on hunger strike.
Some people inside the centre have fresh evidence of persecutions they may face if returned that hasn’t been considered yet. Lots have been here for many years and have families in the UK so this action will force them to be split up. And who considers Iraq safe?
There are currently 15 of us blockading the road, and we plan to stay until the flight is cancelled. But we won’t be able to stop coach unless more people urgently turn up to support. Please come down.
How to get there: Take tube to Heathrow Terminal 5 then bus 350 to Colnbrook IRC. Contact: 07824 996 724.
