Event in Coventry: Oppose the Nationality and Borders Bill: No to hostile environment Wednesday 20 October 2021, 13:30-14:30 Broadgate, Coventry, CV1 1, United Kingdom: Please join StatusNow signatory organisation CARAG – Coventry Asylum and Refugee Action Group and other Coventry local groups as we continue to oppose the anti-Refugee Bill. We will also remember Henok.
The Tories planned Nationalities and Borders Bill will make the mere act of seeking asylum illegal, contrary to the UN Convention on Refugees and Human Rights Acts. We say Refugees Welcome Here, No One Is Illegal! Come and join us to show your support for the right to asylum.
A vigil will also be held to remember Henok, a 23 year old Eritrean asylum seeker who was found dead at the Caludon Centre psychiatric unit in August.
Thousands of existing asylum seekers are living in limbo in the city, waiting years for a decision on their case from the Home Office. Sometimes the pressure is too much.
We need a fairer asylum and immigration system.
Protest supported by Coventry Asylum Seeker and Refugee Action Group and Asylum Matters
