The Government announced yesterday that they were halting removals to Sudan until a country guidance case in September. Abubaker Yousef Mohamed, who was meant to be deported is no longer on his way to Khartoum on Sunday. The Home Office admitted that it was largely due to letters, media interest and Parliamentary pressure.
But there is still more you can do.
- On Monday 14 July, we expect the Chief Prosecutor of the ICC to ask for senior officials of the Government of Sudan to be indicted for war crimes. A demonstration will take place on Monday at 2pm outside the Sudanese embassy in support of ICC arrest warrants and to demand justice for Darfur. Address is: 3 Cleveland Row, London, SW1A 1DD. The organisers have asked participants to bring placards and banners demanding justice for Darfur.
- Contact your MP, or any Lords or MPs you know, to urge them to attend ‘Act for Darfur: Testimony’ on July 22nd at 11am. Download the e-flier above, and see more information pasted below.
‘Act for Darfur’ present Anna Chancellor and Denis Lawson in:
11am, Tuesday 22nd July, The Attlee Suite, Portcullis House – Britain’s greatest actors retell the verbatim testimonies of Darfuri men and women who fled the violence in their homeland and sought asylum on our shores. Performance supported by Actors for Human Rights.
