About MFJ:
“The Yarl’s Wood women’s detention centre is the central battle ground in Britain for the rights of asylum seekers and the rights of women. On Monday 15th October, under the leadership of the Movement for Justice (MFJ), Britain’s leading civil rights and immigrant rights organisation, more than 200 women detainees at Yarl’s Wood began an escalating series of direct actions to win freedom for women asylum seekers, to stop their deportations and to gain basic democratic rights for anyone who is placed in detention.”

The Gathering will also be a chance to catch up on the different Unity projects like the new LGBT Group, the Bike Workshop, the English classes and many more..
