Free the Yarl’s Wood 3! Planning Meeting
Campaign planning meeting, 6pm-7.30pm, Fri 28 January
Fin Future, 225-229 Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park, London, N4 2DA
In February 2010, women at Yarl’s Wood immigration prison went on hunger strike to demand an end to indefinite and abusive imprisonment. The women experienced violent attacks and abusive treatment in an attempt to end their protest. Six women were accused of being ring-leaders and moved into isolation and prisons. Nearly a year later, two women remain in prison without charge: Aminata Camara and Sheree Wilson.
Denise hopes to be able to make this meeting to discuss how to take the campaign forward for Sheree and Aminata’s freedom, the demands of the hunger strike and her right to stay with her children.
Come along to this meeting and show your support. Hear messages from the women and plan how to respond to their requests for solidarity.
The venue is wheelchair accessible. Please let us know if you need childcare for the meeting, and we’ll arrange a creche.
To find it: 2 minutes from Finsbury Park tube station – come out main entrance, go past Arsenal shop, turn right down Seven Sisters Rd, go under railway bridge and Fin Future is on your right with big windows and green window frames or come out Seven Sisters Rd exit, and it’s just on your right.
