Shut Down Yarl's Wood

Yarl's Wood, Bedford. Sat 12 Mar 2016

  

 
 We gathered outside Twinwoods Business Park for a rally, with several people telling about their experiences

 in immigration detention

 

 

 

 

 and some spirited chanting about closing down immigration centres and Yarl's Wood in particular

 

 

  Antonia Bright of Movement for Justice
 
The march starts on the road, led by the Movement for Justice banner 

 

 

and then turns off down the footpath. The first field was damp but not too muddy. 

Marching down by the first field 

Arriving at the fence outside Yarl's Wood 

There were large puddles in the field outside 

Reflections in the windows mean there were only dim shapes visible in many, but the signs said 'We are Humans'
'We are Not Animals' 'Pregnant Women Miscarry' and 'Officers Don't Knock' and hands and arms reached through the gap 

with toilet paper being thrown out 

Some held up phone numbers - one with a message 'Help Me!! I'm 63 Years Old Save Me!!' 

'Deport people to uknown Country 

Sometimes there were faces too
