Anti-detention protests spread to four removal centres
A protest which started on Friday at #Harmondsworth immigration detention centre has spread to three other institutions, amid signs of nationwide unrest at the deportation process.
Fifty detainees at #Campsfield in Oxfordshire joined the wave of protests yesterday morning and started a hunger-strike. There are also actions taking place in #Brook_House, near Gatwick Airport, and #Colnbrook, near Heathrow.
“We want our freedom. We want our life with dignity,” a detainee at Campsfield said.
“We do not want to be treated in an inhuman way. That’s why we are demanding the closure of all detention centres for immigrants in the UK.”
