Especially if you are a possible refuge that is planning to seek asylum in Denmark,

18-08-2008 09:43The hunger strikers in Campsfield House ended their Hunger strike on Sunday, 17 August, following a visits from International Federation of Iraqi Refugees (IFIR) representatives Dashty Jamal and Aso Goran. The Iraqi asylum seekers started the hunger strike on Saturday 9 August demanding an end to forcible deportations to Iraq and the release of all Iraqi Kurdish asylum seekers from detention. However, they are ending the hunger strike before any one suffers ill effects from the hunger strike. Fazzel Abdul, the spokesperson for the hunger strikers, said this does not mean an end to the campaign. "We are finishing the hunger strike at this time whilst we are still all healthy. We do not want anyone to have health problems following the hunger strike."
We'd also like to remind everyone that the Carnival Against Vivisection is next month in solidarity with Sean Kirtley. Don't forget to make flags and banners etc, or see the link below to buy flags from RoC.
