Against 'Ethnic Charter Flight’ to Kurdistan/Iraq

From Hak Mao at DSTs:

This is for London readers — especially those who thought that on balance, the removal of Saddam Hussein would be of net benefit to humanity, and consequently should take an even closer interest in the fate of Kurdish and Iraqi asylum seekers — but anyone with a shred of empathy for fellow human beings should attend. Conveniently, it’s even in your Friday-extended lunch hour, so you don’t have any excuse for not going along to lend your support.

On Thursday 27th March 2008 a number of refused asylum seekers from Iraq were forcibly returned by ‘Ethnic Charter Flight’ to Kurdistan/Iraq. Exact details of numbers on the flight are not known but some of those to be removed that day were not and returned to various IRC’s. Those returned are still facing removal, one of those is Yousuf Ahmed Ibrahim who is due to be removed on Wednesday 23rd April by Royal Jordanian Airlines.
