Shut down Yarl's Wood Immigration Prison

Yarl's Wood, Bedford. Sat 13 May 2017


#Setherfree -  People on the roadside where the coaches drop them - around 3/4 mile from the prison

 A man speaks about his experiences with the UK's unfair immigration system

 There were a number of speeches and chanting of slogans as we waited for more coaches to arrive

 

 

 Antonia Bright of Movement for Justice

 and a few of those in the crowd

 

 

 Eventually it was time to start marching to Yarls Wood 'Dignity Not Detention' banner

 'Sisters in Arms - No Borders No Limits'

 People march down the footpath from the road

 'Smash All Borders'

 'Whoever Lives Here Is From Here'

 A quarter of an hour later people reach the prison fence - and start making a lot of noise

 

 Some stand higher up in the field and lift their posters so those at the windows inside Yarls WOod can see them

 'Brexit is Racist - STOP Brexit'

 'Superman is a Refugee'

 

 

 Focus E15 members had come to support the protest

 'No Human is illegal'

 

 'nobody forgotten, nothing forgiven'

'Theresa May is not a feminist'
