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 a 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 forjustice and equality and fighting racism, we have been breaching the walls and fences of detention centres, reaching inside with chants of FREEDOM. Our detainees friends, partners in struggle, though locked up have made their voices ring out.
