Fighting deportation of teacher Farhan Zakaria

Issue No. 2123

Farhan Zakaria, a popular teacher and NUT union activist at Sarah Bonnell school in Stratford, east London, is threatened with imminent deportation to Bangladesh.

Farhan has lived in Britain for over 12 years. He and his family are the victims of a change in their visa status of which they were not informed.

The NUT has organised petitioning among local schools and a demonstration on Thursday 16 October at 3.30pm starting from the school.
