Mark your calendars for Monday 25th June. NCADC will be holding a public meeting at 7pm at Praxis in Bethnal Green, London, to discuss co-ordinated campaigning against deportations to Afghanistan. While all evidence points to the security situation steadily deteriorating in Afghanistan, UKBA persists in deporting young Afghans en masse to Kabul where they face massive risks and hardship.
Stop Deportation, along with other groups in Europe, are proposing a European Week of Action Against the Deportation Machine, with a focus on joint European mass deportation flights and Frontex. The proposed date is the first week of June 2010, 1st-6th.
Since the British courts rejected a recent Country Guidance case that presented a wealth of evidence that asylum seekers forcibly returned to the Democratic Republic of Congo risk being persecuted by the authorities, the Home Office has stepped up its attempts to deport people to that country.
