Close Campsfield NOW!
Demonstration, 12 noon Saturday 28 November 2015
On our doorsteps! 22 years too long!
End the inhumane practice of immigration detention!

On 29 November 1993 the first minibus full of people arrived at Campsfield House. Since then over 30,000 people from other countries have been imprisoned there. Many have survived torture and conflict, and are seeking sanctuary in the UK. Many have lived and worked for years in the UK, and have family and friends and a life here. All are HUMAN BEINGS. People are imprisoned in Campsfield and other immigration detention centres WITHOUT CHARGE, for administrative reasons. Many cannot be deported and are subsequently released. But there is NO TIME LIMIT on their EXPENSIVE detention. If you are FED UP with the government’s ‘hostile environment’ and divisive rhetoric, and want to stand up for and reach out to those imprisoned unjustly, JOIN US! There has been PROGRESS in the fight against immigration detention in 2015 – a Parliamentary Inquiry with tough recommendations, legal challenges to the ‘Detained Fast Track’ system, and protests inside and outside detention centres across the UK. LET’S KEEP UP THE PRESSURE!

INVITED SPEAKERS INCLUDE FORMER DETAINEES, OPEN MIKE Bring music, banners!
