Dallas Court, South Langworthy Rd, Salford Quays
Come Along! Bring Pots! Bring Pans!
Asylum Seekers are being forced to report either every day, once a week, every other week, or 1 once month, at reporting centres, such as Dallas Court, by this racist Labour Government. Many are force to walk for hours as they are given a £40 voucher (which can only be used at ASDA). Many have had all support withdrawn, or not been given any in the first place, yet they are still forced have to sign on.
Everytime they sign on, they risk the chance of being snached, and forcably deported back to face rape, torture, and even death from where they were lucky enough to escape from in the first place.
We have to oppose reporting centres, such as Dallas Court. We have to oppose Britians racist immigration laws!

NO TO DALLAS COURT! NO TO THE RACIST LABOUR GOVERNMENT!
OPPOSE ALL DEPORTATIONS! OPPOSE TO ALL IMMIGRATION LAWS!
DEFEND ALL ASYLUM SEEKERS!
Under racist immigration laws asylum seekers are targeted and face the threat of detention or deportation at any time to war-torn countries like Sudan, Iraq, D. R. Congo, Afghanistan and Nigeria. Under section 9 of the 2004 Act introduced by Labour, benefits have been taken away from families of ‘failed’ asylum seekers, leaving them and their children homeless and destitute. Deportation of refugees including rape and torture victims, has increased, now at 1,350 a month. More and more asylum seekers are being evicted from their homes unto the streets. The situation is getting more desperate for asylum seekers, many of whom aren’t allowed to work, and are now electronically tagged. Even their children, some as young as five-years-old, are fingerprinted as if they were criminals.
Detention in prisons of asylum seekers and over 2000 of their children is increasing, and brutality and assaults in these places of fear is unrelenting, leading to more people taking their own lives. Many suffer from depression and other psychological problems as a result of their criminalisation and the uncertainty facing them. Many asylum seekers driven by desperation have gone underground, over 30 have taken their own lives, hundreds have been on hunger strikes at detention centres on and off since June 2005 to protest against their arbitrary detention and racist treatment.
There is an urgent need to build resistance on the streets of the North West to the treatment of all asylum seekers by this racist, murderous Labour government. Asylum seekers are beginning to organise the fightback and the North West Asylum Seekers Defence Group has been set up to support them!
