I know we've agreed that the main theme this time would be non-compliance,
but i was just thinking that perhaps it should be the weekly reporting.
Recently they've changed the rules so that all asylum seekers now, as far
as I know, have to travel every week to Solihul to sign on. It used to be
every month. Of course no one is paid for travel expnses. So, apart from
the humiliation and hardship that the this reporting embodies, it further
contributes to the systematic impoverishment of asylum seekers.
I think this is more urgent now, as a demand, than non-compliance. What do
from the minutes:
> Last demo had a focus point (the hunger strike), so it would be good to
> have something like that each time. For this one, we can still read out
> some updates on the situation in Colnbrook, but it was agreed that the
> main theme would be non-compliance.
