Protesters gathered at the sheriff court in Glasgow on Wednesday of last week to support refugees who the charity Y People has been trying to evict. In eight cases where refugees were defended, evictions were put off till December.

Ten undefended cases went through on the nod. The disputed cases could develop into test cases that challenge the legality of the use of destitution as an arm of government policy. The protest was organised by the Glasgow Campaign to Welcome Refugees.
