On Wednesday 7th September, the UK government forcibly removed 42 Jamaican people on a privately chartered flight. Many of the people on the flight had lived in the UK for decades, some arriving as children and had British born partners / spouses, children and grandchildren. Several were still going through the process of naturalisation or appeals and were detained whilst signing in with the Home Office and removed within a fortnight.

We are concerned to learn that more such mass forced removals are planned so BARAC UK has called this lunch time demo outside the Home Office in protest which will be followed by a public meeting from 6.30 to 9pm.
Both events take place on 2nd November.
There will be speakers from migrant rights and anti-deportation campaigns, lawyers acting for some of those impacted and family members of those targeted for removal.
The lunchtime demo will take place from 12.30 to 2pm at The Home Office, 2 Marsham St, London SW1P 4DF (nearest tube stations, St James Park, Victoria and Westminster).
Please bring banners, placards, whistles, drums etc.
The public meeting will take place from 6.30 to 9pm at Can Mezzanine, 49-51 East Road, London, N1 6AH (a few minutes walk from Old Street tube station).
