Public meeting: Stop the deportations of the Pakistani students

09-05-2009 00:19

Stop the Criminalization of muslims. There will be two public meetings in Manchester in response to the decision by the Home Office to deport muslims for opaque reasons of "national security" despite no evidence being found, apart from possession of sugar and photographs of Manchester landmarks, for the much publicised "very big terrorist plot" as the Prime Minister called it, just before 12 men were arrested and detained for almost two weeks before being released without charge into detention by the immigration authorities where they may remain for several years pending their appeal against arbitrary deportation.

This ruling does not seem to have concerned our government a great deal.
