THE RUNWAY AT STANSTEAD AIRPORT WAS CLOSED ON TUESDAY.
The runway at Stansted airport was closed on Tuesday(28th March 2107) night after protesters ran out to prevent a plane carrying eight deportees from taking off.
The campaign groups End Deportations, other activist groups and activists from Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants said 14 activists had locked themselves to a tripod to stop a “mass deportation charter flight” from the Essex airport to Nigeria and Ghana. Campaigners said that deportees on the flight included people who feared for their lives and had claimed asylum. We appreciate the support and Solidarity from End Deportation, activists from the LGBT community and other activist group. Finally our outcry and campaign to stopping unlawful charter deportation is finally coming together. JUSTICE FOR MIGRANTS, JUSTICE FOR ALL.
P.s. We are saying a Big 'Thank You' to everyone supporting the Nigerian Post Deportation Support Group.
