Description

On 13th May 2017 we return to Yarl's Wood immigration detention centre in force for our Eleventh Surround YarlsWood demonstration - join us in a movement that can bring an end to the hated, rotten, racist system of detention!

Buy your ticket for the Manchester Coaches now!

MEETING POINT: Beside the Britannia Hotel on Chorlton Street M1 3LA - 9am

PLEASE NOTE: We know we could likely fill two coaches from Manchester and mostly with asylum seekers, the coach hire costs £925 - even if we sell all of the paid for tickets on this coach we will still be £373 short and thats with only 13 free seats, we would like to offer much more free seats! There is a Donation Only ticket option, please share this page and ask people to donate if they cant come. Also talk to you student/trade union about endorsing the demo and donating towards the cost of the coach - or maybe ask your student union to put on a fundraiser or donate profits of one of the bar nights to the demo. LETS GET AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE FROM MANCHESTER TO YARLSWOOD ON 13th MAY!!

If all the free seats are gone and you really want to come but cant pay, please email mfj@ueaa.net - we'd much prefer to make sure everyone who wants to come gets a seat, especially asylum seekers so email and we can make sure you get a seat.

(If you are a wheelchair user please email mfj@ueaa.net for more info before you book)

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.

To start with we have booked 5 London coaches, if we can sell enough tickets we will book more as needed.

Here is a draft motion you can download and edit for your union - https://docs.google.com/document/d/12B03mMNJgNjgBJWTvc_ATKMYbAokMNj_18jsES61GxY/edit?usp=sharing
