20/21 March: Together against detention

From Woolas to Pennine House: 20/21 March will be a weekend of protests moving from Oldham to Manchester's detention centre, highlighting and scandalising the UK's policy of detaining asylum seekers and their children. Get involved in the early planning stages for this protest now.

Manchester No Borders are planning for two protests, one at the Immigration Minister's office in Oldham and one at 'Pennine House', the immigration detention centre at Manchester airport.

We also want to draw a direct connection between the two, linking them with a cycle ride to the airport detention facility

So here is for your diaries (provisionally):

Wednesday 4th March evening - Public organising meeting about the protests

Friday 20th March afternoon/early evening - Protest/leafletting in Oldham

Saturday 21st March noon - Cycle/Train rige to the airport (meet Albert Sq.), the protest at Pennine House

We invite you now to get involved in the early planning stages for this event. There will also be an organising meeting in early March.
