On Friday 13th June, on the eve of Refugee Week, people from many communities in Birmingham will be coming together to
protest against British government's treatment of asylum seekers and remembering those who died while
seeking asylum here due to self-harm, denial of medical treatment, destitution, hazardous working conditions
or racist attacks.

The protest has been organised by the West Midlands Anti Racist Campaign (ARC) and West Midlands
Activist Network. This is the fifth sleep out that we will be organising to highlight the conditions faced by
asylum seekers and refugees in this country.
