Marking the first anniversary of the ferocious family immigration restrictions, we’re keeping up the pressure on decision makers. There’s been a good amount of publicity about the restrictions over recent weeks, thanks largely to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Migration’s report into the rules, the subsequent debates and a number of media exposes on different aspects of the rules and what people can do to unite their families in the UK. This is an excellent opportunity to keep up the pressure.
We have provided extensive coverage to the campaign over the past year and are organising a day of protest and pressure at Westminster, similar to what happened last year, but we hope significantly larger.
Schedule for the day:
Tuesday 9 July 2013
4pm Protest at The Home Office, Marsham Street SW1P 4DF
5pm Lobby your MP at the House of Commons
6pm Parliamentary public meeting, Committee Room 10, House of Commons (ends at 7.30pm)
We are working at organising the speakers for both the protest at 4pm and the Parliamentary meeting at 6pm. One thing is for sure, we want to ensure that people affected by the rules are heard, so if you have a story to tell, please come along and have your voice heard.
The events are being co-organised by JCWI, BritCits, MRN and the Family Immigration Alliance: The Divided Families Campaign.
