Solidarity Rally with our Refugee Friends and Neighbours and Ceremonial Burning of the Letters.
Glasgow’s traumatised and impoverished refugees have been thrown into a state of alarm by the UKBA’s unilateral withdrawal from the Asylum Contract negotiations and their subsequent callous and contemptuous letter threatening removal at 3 days’ notice to private housing either with YMCA or the notorious Angel Group somewhere in Scotland. Stand shoulder to shoulder with our fellow refugee citizens in their fight to remain in their homes and communities. Join the rally at Brand St on Saturday morning. Bring your letters from UKBA for ceremonial burning outside the loathsome UKBA offices.
Called by Glasgow Campaign to Welcome Refugees, the Right to Work Campaign, Positive Action in Housing and Unity.
