Say no to a women’s immigration detention centre in County Durham – demonstration this Sunday 4th July at 11am!
We will be gathering at the common-land field at the back of the Hassockfield site in Medomsley in County Durham to show our opposition to the plans. We will meet at the field behind the site. The address is Corbridge Rd, Consett DH8 6QY.
We will have stewards on hand to direct you to the field from the main road.
The Hassockfield site can be reached by public transport. A day ticket for the bus is £7 – we have some money for transport, please email email@example.com. We’re trying to organise groups leaving from both Durham and Newcastle, so get in touch at the email if you want to go with a group. Please also get in touch if you are driving and have space in your car- Thanks!
Bring placards, banners and your voice for the chants!
We will have stewards and police liaisons to keep everyone as safe as possible. We have more info on your rights when protesting – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to know more. If you are uncertain about attending because of your immigration status, please get in touch and we can talk through the issues with you. We will all act to ensure the safety of everyone.
