Stop deportations to Iraq! Demo at Iraqi Embassy 06/10/10

Demonstration called by the Coalition to Stop Deportations to Iraq:

Wednesday 6th October, 12.30pm-1.30pm

At the Iraqi Embassy, 3 Elvaston Place, London SW7 5QH (just off Gloucester Road, two minutes north of Gloucester Road underground station)

In the last month more than one hundred Iraqi and Kurdish refugees have been deported to Baghdad. There is another mass deportation planned for the 6th October.

People are being taken from their families and homes in the UK, detained, beaten and sent back to a war zone.

The Kurdistan Regional Government was shamed into refusing to accept anymore deportations to the north of Iraq after a popular campaign led by deportees and refugees in Iraq and Europe.

Instead, the British Government has started to deport people back to Baghdad as it continues to play politics with the lives of Iraqi refugees.

Action continues to be taken against these deportations in Iraq. We need to come together in support to put pressure on the Iraqi Government to stop accepting deportations also. This demonstration will be covered in the Iraqi and Kurdish media so it is very important attendance is strong.

If you cannot attend the demonstration please write to President Talabani from your organisation, union or political party or as an individual requesting the Iraqi Government stop accepting forcible deportations. This is very important as each letter will be publicised in the Iraqi and Kurdish media and will put more pressure on the Government. Details and a model letter can be found here.
