Refugee family on hunger strike, Glasgow, 28 June 2018Add to Lightbox Download
FAMILY DESPERATE FOR A RESOLUTION TO THEIR CASE HAS GONE ON HUNGER STRIKE OUTSIDE GLASGOW IMMIGRATION OFFICE.
A family of Kurdish, Iraqi Refugees living in Glasgow have gone on hunger strike outside the Home Office’s immigration enforcement and reporting centre, after waiting 13 years for a resolution to their case.
The family are calling for friends and family to join them outside the centre at 11am on Thursday 28th June, Festival Court, 200 Brand St, Glasgow G51 1DH.
However, they are currently sat outside alone and anyone wishing to come now and offer support, can come now.
The youngest, Banez, 18, has recently been accepted to study law but cannot start her studies because of her legal status.
Dastan, 19, is Scottish Amateur Lightweight Champion and fears for his future as he cannot progress his boxing career, again due to restrictions because of his status.
His older brother, Daban, is a Mechanical Engineering Graduate from The University of Aberdeen, but has had job offers rejected when it comes to checking his legal status.
The family are now desperate and have informed the home office that they cannot wait any longer for a decision on their lives.
Contact Jamie on 07933860363 for further details.
