Benjamin Update- Flight Stopped and other news

4 Aug

Some good news – Benjamin’s flight has been stopped!

Thanks to everyone who called, faxed and emailed about his scheduled removal to Greece and about his medical care.

This afternoon, the courts in Scotland issued a court order to prevent the Home Office from forcibly sending him to Greece tomorrow (Wednesday 4 August). This is the second time his removal from the UK has been stopped. A judicial review of his case is now pending.

Lots of groups and individuals have been getting in touch with Benjamin to offer support and solidarity, and he sends his best wishes to everyone. He’s hoping to get out of detention and back to Glasgow soon.

Other news – in Campsfield immigration prison, there are currently 140+ people on hunger strike. See http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2010/08/456540.html for the statement released by the detainees and how you can support them.
