Refugees

MIKE TAYLOR, branch treasurer of Bristol National Union of Journalists, faces a possible prison sentence for fighting the deportation of Amanj Gafor, a Kurdish-Iraqi asylum seeker. Mike was arrested last August for leading a protest at Heathrow airport that temporarily stopped Amanj's deportation.

Mike will be in court on Friday 6 April at Uxbridge magistrates court charged with organising a protest on airport property as well as refusing to leave during a demonstration. Tony Benn MP has issued a letter calling for support and solidarity with Mike Taylor when he appears in court.

  • Join the protest at 10am, Friday 6 April, Uxbridge Magistrates Court, Harefield Road, Uxbridge, Middlesex. Bring banners.

TWO HUNDRED people crammed into a club night in Brighton last Saturday to raise money for the Sussex Refugee Association. The night was organised by Brighton & Hove Committee to Defend Asylum Seekers.
