Voices From Detention

24-11-2006 16:59

Barbed Wire Britain, a network to end refugee and migrant detention, has produced a second volume of testimonies from immigration detainees, Voices From Detention II.

Amidst the political and media clamour about how many asylum seekers have been or need be deported, the voices of the system's victims are necessarily stifled. Would-be refugees are mere statistics, objects in a disgusting Dutch auction as to which political brand can wash whitest. And this why such a collection is an important tool in the struggle for rights and justice.

The volume is a collection of accounts by detainees in Tinsley House, Campsfield House, Rochester (HMP), Liverpool (HMP), Belmarsh (HMP), Lindholme, Harmondsworth, Yarlswood, Dungavel, Dover and Haslar. These are people for whom the unthinkable has happened. They have been imprisoned in the UK without charge, without conviction, without time limit. They have been imprisoned by the UK government, which boasts its democratic institutions.

G20: A first communiqué from two uncitizens of Arterial Bloc

24-11-2006 15:28

Video a space outside - anti-G20 convergence space
There have been many calls for Arterial Bloc to come forward and ‘justify’ their tactics during the [November 2006 Melbourne] G20 protests. The following statement is not a justification of specific actions; it is an exploration of politics. This statement has not been written for or on behalf of the Bloc; it has been written from within the Bloc. None of us can be leaders or spokespeople for each other. [this deserves a wider audience]

torture of Necati Zontul- an update and forthcoming documentary

24-11-2006 12:15

a travesty of justice - the turkey turns
published below, a letter to the Greek Prime Minister from Tim Wilson who works in Oxford with his partner, torture victim Necati Zontul. Their second film, "A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE" is now in production and charts the failure and bias of the Greek Courts. Yesterday, the Government's apology to Greek activist Avgoustino Dimitrou, important though it is, demonstrates that there is one law for Greeks and another for foreigners. Necati has waited 6 years fro an apology and has received none. Neither has he been offered compensation, or a statement of non-recurrence. Instead, he has been denied access to court and seen 3 of his assailants acquitted. It is time that the racist agenda is challenged, and the mindless corruption and cronyism that sees convicted men still in uniform years after their trial, must stop -before more innocent foreigners are hurt in Greece.
