Story

Action Against Detention and Deportations, a coalition of anti-border groups, are organising a solidarity demo at the Manston detention camp in Kent. We need your help to fund transport to the demo.

Manston is a concentration camp for migrants. 4,000 people, including many children, are being held there in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions, despite a max capacity of just 1,600.

When we visited the camp last Sunday, the people inside shouted to us across the barbed wire that they had been there for as long as a month, without access to lawyers, NGOs, adequate healthcare, or phones. It’s a humanitarian catastrophe. And interning people there illegally is a political decision taken by Suella Braverman and the Home Office.

We need to show the thousands of people trapped in Manston that we stand with them, that we welcome their arrival, and that we support their struggle to be free.

Detention facilities like Manston are deliberately located in places that are difficult to reach, ensuring that people held there are isolated and cut off from support. But we won’t let this stop us! Please help us show solidarity with everyone detained at Manston by chipping in for the cost of hiring coaches to take people to the demonstration and reimbursing other travel costs as needed. If you want to access our funds to reimburse you for your transport costs please fill out our travel request form.

We will use any money left after covering travel to contribute to further action to close down Manston. We need to keep up this fight.

Any funds that are not used directly to shut down Manston will be donated to SOAS Detainee Support and the Solidarity Knows No Borders Network for their work supporting people in detention and opposing the hostile environment.

Love and solidarity,

SOAS Detainee Support
