As a direct result of so many donations, Sophia was able to pay for a solicitor to lodge a judicial review and injunction, which meant that she wasn't on the charter flight today!!! She says a big thank you to all her supporters and everyone who donated - it shows how possible it is for people to make an impact and support those facing deportation. Next, she will try to get bail from Yarl's Wood and wait for the outcome of the judicial review. If anyone knows a solicitor who would work pro bono to represent her please get in touch at [email protected]
The fight continues but Sophia can rest a bit today.
Our thoughts and solidarity are also with everyone who was deported away from their communities and homes this morning to Jamaica, and their families still in the UK.
Thank you and solidarity!
