From The Socialist newspaper, 24 November 2005

Manchester:

Demo opposes deportations

AROUND 500 people joined the demonstration called in Manchester by unions and asylum support groups. The rally was in support of people facing deportation - like Eucharia and Timeyi, a mother and her six-year-old son threatened with deportation by the Home Office to Nigeria where they are in danger of rape, torture and murder.

People also came in support of Mansoor Hassan, an investigative journalist who fled from Pakistan after he was beaten up, shot at and his family were subject to barbiturate poisoning. This was all because he exposed government corruption, politicians' complicity with honour killings, and illegal drugs-dealing.

Asylum seekers from Cameroon, Congo, Nigeria and Pakistan came on the demo, which as one member Rob commented "seemed to get bigger as it went along. It was a good turnout."

On 25 November and 23 December we will be demonstrating in support of Mansoor and family outside Dallas Court detention centre in Salford. Come along, join the protests!
