The campaigner who designed this t-shirt, Suman from Sheffield, campaigns with These Walls Must Fall as part of the ‘Voice for Voiceless Immigration Detainees Yorkshire’ (VVIDY) group, and Voices Ambassadors Sheffield, and is also a community journalist for the Burngreave Messenger.
The inspiration for his design was the feeling of walls and darkness that the hostile environment means to him and the impact it has had on his life, and the hope for freedom.
“Don’t keep me behind the walls, dark room, you are also keeping my skills, experiences, qualifications and knowledge, let me contribute using my skills, let me fly like a bird, end the inhuman detention, These Wall Must Fall.”
Funds raised by these t-shirts will go directly to the local These Walls Must Fall campaign in Yorkshire, helping people at risk of detention to lead the campaign to end the system.
