About 70 people, including 20 refugees, joined a demonstration in Glasgow against refugees being made homeless by landlords Ypeople last Friday. Speakers included journalist Ako Zada and representatives from the UCU, FBU and Unison unions.
People were shocked that the government has decided not to investigate suicides at the Red Road flats last year. They are outraged that Ypeople has issued notices to quit to some 50 refugees.
Campaigners are determined to increase pressure on Ypeople and Serco, which is taking over the contract to house refugees. The protest was called by the Glasgow Campaign to Welcome Refugees.
