About us

We are a group of UK activists and organisers who came up with this idea for a freedom fast action, to highlight the demands of the people in Yarl’s Wood who started a hunger strike on the 21st February.

We discussed the idea with people locked-up in Yarl’s Wood, got their approval and started to organise it.

We are united by the recognition of our responsibility to what happens to every person in this country facing the weight of the immigration system, and believe that all detention centres should be shut down. We are based in various cities across the UK.
