In December, MHVG co-signed two important letters on behalf of our members.

The first was drafted by our friends at AVID. Addressed to the immigration compliance minister, Chris Philips, and signed by 60 community groups, the letter called for an end to the use of army barracks to house vulnerable asylum seekers. This followed several reports of poor conditions, suicide attempts, hunger strikes, risk of Covid-19 and far right protests. You can read the Guardian story covering the letter here.

The second letter was drafted by our friends at BiD. Addressed to the Home Secretary, Priti Patel, the letter demanded the urgent release of people detained in prisons under immigration powers and was signed by 40 organisations. Please read the letter and write to your MP to support the campaign. You can also read the Independent story covering the letter here.
