Launched this week, this “zine” is a hand-made guide about preparing in case you are detained.
It talks about practical things you and supporters can do, as well as giving you some insight into what the experience might be like – although everybody is different.
It’s been made by Rosie in Sheffield using accounts from experts-by-experience (people who have been detained) and the Right to Remain Toolkit.
As the campaign group Freed Voices have said in their statement welcoming this new resource:
Knowledge is power and this is vital when you have to swim across the ocean of harsh immigration policies and practices in the UK. As a group with first hand experience, we are well aware of the importance of having vital resources that people can refer to gain more knowledge around immigration detention, ever present risk of detention during Home Office reporting events, and necessary advice, guidance and preparations for people at risk of detention.

On reaching the UK, people face a hostile environment. Without help, many will be forcibly sent back to the wars, persecution and misery they have fled.
