Campaigners are planning a mass protest against Yarl’s Wood detention centre on Saturday 7 November. The “Surround Yarl’s Wood—Shut it down!” protest was called by the Movement for Justice.
Joseph Mpanga is helping to publicise the protest. He was held in detention centres in Britain while appealing a Home Office decision to refuse him leave to remain.
Joseph told Socialist Worker, “I’ve been out of detention for just over a month. I was in Tinsley and then Harmondsworth.
“Detention is so demeaning, so humiliating, so unreasonable. The government says it’s done to help people—but it’s just the opposite.”
