31-08-2006 14:52PICKET OF THE HOME OFFICE - TUESDAY 5 SEPTEMBER, 12-2 PM
Called by COALITION TO STOP DEPORTATIONS TO IRAQ and INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF IRAQI REFUGEES
Show your opposition to Blair and Reid’s policy of deporting vulnerable people to dangerous countries! Support the efforts to stop forced removals to Iraq!
The Home Office has detained many Iraqi Kurds, perhaps 60, and some have been told they will be removed on 5 September. We believe there are also some Arab Iraqis in detention. All over Britain Iraqis are living in fear of a dawn raid on their home, or of arrest at their place of work or when they go to report at the Home Office signing centre. They fear losing even the precarious position they have found in British society.
1,900 asylum seekers were removed under Assisted Voluntary Return schemes (1,635 principal applicants and 270 dependants), 38% of the 5,070 total removed in May/June/July 2006.

31-08-2006 11:30The truth is, and here it is being said for the first time in this form, that Muslim people’s objection to Satan Rushdie was not about Rushdie's alleged freedom to write fiction. It was to Rushdie's satanic evil plot to distort the humanity of the entire Muslim peoples across the world. All Rushdie's apologists have suppressed the truth. They have covered it up with the lie that Muslims are against freedom of expression. Muslims are against the organised lying against human rights. There is no cause higher than this on earth. Uphold human rights. To deny Muslims the right to freedom to express opposition to the lies of Satan Rushdie or his likes is the greater violation of the allegedly western-only virtue of freedom of expression
