After Immigration Advisory Service goes - defend access to justice for all

Issue No. 2261

Thousands of immigrants and asylum seekers have been left without representation since the Immigration Advisory Service (IAS) went into administration.

IAS users and former workers have called a meeting to explain how serious the closure is and organise to do something about it.

IAS, the last national organisation providing legal advice to asylum seekers, was forced into administration as a result of legal aid cuts.

Defend Access To Justice!

With Edward Mynott (former IAS worker) and refugees from the Human Rights Organisation RAPAR. Thursday 21 July, 7.00 pm, Central Buildings, Oldham Street, Manchester, M1 1JQ. Organised by local lawyers, supported by RAPAR Human Rights Organisation
