People seeking safety in the UK are being dumped in disused army barracks. It is detention in all but name and is putting lives at risk.
Left to live in overcrowded rooms with just a dirty bedsheet to separate bunks, this accommodation is nowhere near Covid-secure.
People fleeing unimaginable trauma are now housed in places that can lead them to relive memories of war and torture, without proper medical and psychological support. Suicide attempts have been made.
If this wasn’t enough, the barracks have become targets for the far-right. In response, residents are being punished with curbs on their freedom.
This must change. Help us fight to #CloseTheBarracks. Email your MP today.
