Rallying outside Bolton Town Hall for the Sukolas

Protest has halted plans to remove the Sukula family from Bolton. We heard the good news on Monday, two days after 100 people rallied outside Bolton town hall in support of the Sukula Family Must Stay campaign.

The National Asylum Support Service had instructed the Sukulas be forcibly relocated to Liverpool Рentirely against the family’s will and with a medical emergency facing them.

The Sukulas have lived in Bolton for six years after fleeing the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo and have established strong links with the local community.
