The UK government currently detains more than 2000 children including babies in immigration detention centres every year. These children have not committed any crime other than being born in a country where they’ve had to flee for their safety with their parents. BUT these children are held behind locked doors and barbed wire fences for anything between 7 and 268 days! Depression, eating disorders and disrupted education is common. Many children are detained simply for the purpose of administrative convenience or before the family’s circumstances have been fully considered.
YOU WOULDN’T LET THEM DO IT TO YOUR CHILDREN, DON’T LET THEM DO IT TO ANYONE ELSES
65% of asylum seekers are failed by the asylum system, even though most of them come from countries where there is war or extreme repression such as Iraq, the ‘Democratic’ Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Zimbabwe and Iran. British companies are ruining other countries to make themselves rich and our government supports them. We should support working people like ourselves, Don’t believe the lies our government and media tell us.
END DETENTION! END DEPORTATION!
