No to Sunderland Deportation

No to Sunderland Deportation

A tearful Lili said: “I’m so, so sad – my heart is broken. On Tuesday morning there was a huge banging at my door and then people shouting ‘it’s immigration’. My son and I were really scared. They told me my case had finished and then they took me to the police station.

“It was a complete shock – I just can’t go back to Cameroon. My son keeps asking me when we are going back home to Sunderland and I have to keep telling him ‘not now’. My flight is on Monday morning, I just hope something happens before then to allow me to go home to Sunderland. I’m so thankful to everyone who is supporting me.”

A long-standing friend and supporter who did not wish to be named said it was disgusting that such a caring woman was being deported.

The woman, who is also from Cameroon, said: “Lili is like a sister to me and it is so unfair what has happened – it’s unbelievable. They are sending her home to die and she has a child with her as well.

“Lili has spent all her time in the UK helping others. She first worked for the Childrens’ Society and now she volunteers at the British Red Cross charity shop.

“She is a really good, caring mother who has raised Keiran on her own, without her family and with only a few friends for support.”

We are thinking of setting up a political discussion group. Do you feel you’d like to know more about what’s going behind the news. What caused the credit crunch? Was Marx right all along? What is the link between capitalism, war and environmental devastation? What causes inequality? Why are four fifths of the world ‘s population living on the brink of starvation? What can we do about it?

If you’d like to be involved, leave a comment here, with your preferred days/ times.
