Hungerstrike in Campsfield

Some 50 refugees held at Campsfield immigration prison, near Oxford, are on hunger strike since August 9th in protest at their continued detention. The hunger strike was started by 13 Iraqi-Kurdish detainees, who demanded that forcible deportations to Northern Iraq are stopped. This is the second such protest at Campsfield this year and one of many throughout the UK detention estate.( Update August 20th: The Hungerstrike has ended.)
