Yarlswood urgent meeting,Leeds #HungerforFreedom

Urgent Community Meeting #HungerforFreedom

More than 400 women are detained indefinitely in Yarl’s Wood, where their humanity is striped and their integrity demolished.

Over 100 women have been on hunger strike since 21 February 2018. We re coming together in in solidarity to play our part and ensure that this abhorrent system comes to an end.

Please join us for/share this emergency meeting to discuss how people in West Yorkshire can act.  We will be hosting a short panel discussion about the UK asylum system,indefinite detention and so forth.

We will then break off into working groups to focus on an area of action that suits our capacity and interest.

In solidarity
