On 3rd December 2016 we return to Yarl's Wood Immigration Detention Centre in force - join us in a movement that can bring an end to the hated, rotten, racist system of detention!
Buy your ticket for the Sheffield and Doncaster Coach now!
9am - DONCASTER Outside Ward Brothers in town centre, (29-40 Waterdale, Doncaster DN1 3EY)
9.30am - SHEFFIELD - Crucible Theatre, 55 Norfolk St, Sheffield S1 1DA
THERE IS A SECOND COACH NOW GOING JUST FROM SHEFFIELD - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/sheffield-star-to-yarlswood-shut-it-down-31216-tickets-29424577704?aff=eac2
PLEASE NOTE: We would like to offer more free and low cost seats or even a second coach but even if we sold all the tickets as is we would still be £60 short of paying for the coach (£550). PLease think of ways money can be raised for this coach, share the page and point out that even if people cant come they can donate for the coach by chosing teh DONATE ONLY ticket option. Get in touch with your trade and student unions - ask if they can support the demo and donate some money to the cost of transport or could they hold a fundraiser? Any money rasied over the cost on the coach will go on other travel costs for asylum seekers and food/snacks if possible!

The demonstrations and resistance inside Yarl's Wood have been the most important fight in Britain for women's rights and for immigrants' rights, because they have been inspiring - because the people in this struggle are fighting to win the most basic of demands as human beings.
The next National Demonstration at Yarl's Wood is for ALL those held like cattle in the UK's detention system around the country. For ALL looking to break out from under the shadow of detention. It is for ALL those at the borders of Europe challenging the cynical leaders and demanding in real life the promise of democracy and freedom, of which sanctuary is fundamental.
The MFJ, and our friends and allies around the country organising for justice and equality and fighting racism, have been breaching the walls and fences of detention centres, reaching inside with chants of FREEDOM. Our detainee friends, partners in struggle, though locked up have made their voices ring out.

If you are part of a Trade or Student Union, please please please try and pass a motion of support and get a donation for the cost of coaches so we can pay for all the free and low cost seats we need so that everyone who wants to be there on the 12th can be there! Here is a draft motion you can download and edit for your union - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Byi99CtNxwM1WGtiS0kxc1lGZTA/view?usp=sharing
