Detention is one of the most harmful aspects of the immigration system. Nearly 30,000 people are detained without time limit every year, in prison-like conditions, just because they don’t (yet) have the correct immigration papers. Tens of thousands more live with the threat of indefinite detention hanging over them, or with the trauma of past detention. Detention harms those detained, those at risk of detention, families, communities and our society as a whole.
These Walls Must Fall is an initiative to build local campaigns to challenge the use of immigration detention in the UK.
People are pushing the campaign through their community groups, voluntary organisations, charities, trade unions, activist groups, faith communities, student societies, sports clubs… the list keeps growing!
When you have these people, groups, organisations, communities, acting together, it all adds up to some serious people power. This is what it will take to convince the politicians that they must act to shut down the detention centres. This is what you will be helping to organise.Read more on the These Walls Must Fall website
