SOAS Justice For Workers - End Outsourcing
Russell Square, WC1H 0XG London, United Kingdom
This event is to commemorate the deportations of 9 SOAS cleaners by the UK state, in cahoots with the private company management and SOAS Management. On 12th June 2009 SOAS cleaners, working for an outsourcing company, were called in for an early morning staff meeting, in G2 Lecture Theatre in SOAS Main Building. The meeting was actually a cover for a UKBA (United Kingdom Border Agency) raid. 9 SOAS cleaners were handcuffed in the lecture theatre and deported by UKBA officers at an all cleaners meeting in G2 SOAS lecture theatre. Despite this state crime with corporate and SOAS complicity, la lucha continúa!
We will be organising a series of activities to commemorate these deportations. Our community networks of support, love and justice are the only protection against such state violence, in universities and beyond.
12pm- Rally on the SOAS steps
5.30pm- Screening of Limpiadores
6pm- Panel discussion- 'Deportations as social control'

Food and drinks will be served!
HASTA LA VICTORIA SIEMPRE.
