Women inside Yarl's Wood are available for interview

A number of Ugandan women, including mothers being held with their young children, are on hunger strike in Yarl's Wood Immigration Removal Centre in Bedfordshire. Other Ugandan women and men are refusing food in Dover, Doncaster and Oakington. Like the Zimbabwean hunger strikers, they are protesting against being removed and demanding that their asylum claims are reconsidered in light of the conditions in Uganda. Ms N has now been on hunger strike for 10 days; eight women joined her five days ago and numbers are growing. Ms N is now very weak and tried to commit suicide two days ago after a male guard entered her room when she was dressed only in her underwear. Ms N fled Uganda after suffering rape and was terrified that she was about to be raped again.
