Saturday 5th June, 2pm in Parliament Square.
We are a network of different organisations who stand together against the immigration policies the last government introduced and the new government has pledged to continue. We have lost friends and families to detention and forcible deportation. Our members have been beaten and tortured in detention centres. Their immigration status has been used as a weapon against them when they have fought for a decent wage. They have been killed, kidnapped and disappeared when they have been deported back to countries where their human rights have not been respected.
We are demonstrating outside parliament to say that no one is illegal and to call for an end to forcible deportation policy, the closure of all detention centres, freedom of movement and equal rights for all.
Groups attending include: International Federation of Iraqi Refugees, Kurdish and Turkish Community Centre, Kurdistan National Congress, International Organisation of Iranian Refugees (No Border), Coalition to Stop Deportations to Iraq, London Coalition Against Poverty, Campaign Against Immigration Controls, Cameroon Support Network, South Asia Solidarity Group
