Campaign against Barnardo's involvement in migrant detention

Barnardo's concert In March 2011 children's charity Barnardo's announced that they would run "play facilities" at the new Cedars "pre-departure accommodation centre" imprisoning migrants near Gatwick airport in Sussex.

The prison opened in September 2011 and security is managed by the infamous G4S, who have been involved in countless abuses of migrants in the UK and beyond in recent years.

There is an ongoing campaign against Barnardo's to demand they end their involvement in migrant detention. See the Facebook group here, sign a petition here in support of the campaign, and read more about the campaign below:
