YARLS WOOD INTERNMENT CAMP
The picture attached was not taken during the Third Reich, nor during the Northern Ireland ‘Troubles’, nor during apartheid South Africa, nor is it a Soviet Gulag – it is an Internment Camp in the United Kingdom in 2010!
Yarls Wood, in the guise of rows of new, pitched-roof barracks, lined up behind barbed wire fences, is run under “Detention Centre Rules (2001)” on behalf of the UK Border Agency by private company Serco”. – Jonathan Glancey
“People who fought and died during the Second World War probably believed that once the Third Reich was defeated there would be no more Internment Camps in Europe.
How tragically wrong they were. Here on this page is the proof that authoritarianism of the most wicked kind persists into the 21st Century in the UK”. Peter Wakeham
CHILDREN MUST NEVER BE LOCKED UP
Yarls Wood imprisons mainly women and children, sometimes as young as three months old. Some people are detained up to a year. They must be released now!
