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
