G4S AGM/Justice for Jimmy Mubenga

The Justice for Jimmy Mubenga campaign invites people to demonstrate outside G4S’ AGM on Thursday 19th May, from 1pm-2.30pm, at Ironmonger Hall, Barbican, London. We will demand that G4S be held accountable for Jimmy Mubenga’s death on 12 October 2010 following ‘restraint’ by G4S officers while being forcibly removed from the UK. Members of Justice for Jimmy Mubenga will also be asking questions to senior management within the AGM.

Medsin KCL are organising a series of talks relating to global health and London NoBorders have been invited to talk tomorrow, Thursday 24th February.

In the second part we want to talk about the issues around access to health care for asylum seekers in the UK in general.

The talk will take place at the Gowland Hopkins LT, Hodgkin Building, Guys Campus, Kings College London. Starts at 6pm.

G4S Whistleblowers Confirm Detainees’ Allegation

February 21, 2011 Leave a comment

The Guardian reported last week that whistleblowers within G4S, the private company contracted to carry out forced deportations, say that staff warned management of inappropriate use of force. Yet, after the death in October 2010 of a deportee who had been restrained and complained he couldn’t breathe, a top G4S manager claimed he was ‘not aware’ of any staff concern. Full Article.

Free the Yarl’s Wood 3! Planning Meeting

January 28, 2011 Leave a comment

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.
