Demonstrate in solidarity with Yarl’s Wood hunger strikers

// 10 March 2010

There will be a demonstration at Holloway Prison (Parkhurst Road, London, N7 0NU) at 6.30pm tonight, in support of the five hunger strikers imprisoned there as well as the twenty women still refusing food at Yarl’s Wood Detention Centre. The five women were arrested and moved to Holloway after being branded ‘ring leaders’ in the hunger strike.

Please also encourage your MP to sign the Early Day Motion in support of the strikers.
