Asylum seekers housing demo

Have your say

DOZENS of people are expected to attend a protest in Sheffield about a decision to award an asylum seekers’ housing contract to security firms.

The UK Border Agency is expected to sign a deal with G4S, Serco and Reliance Security at the end of the month, taking the service away from local councils.

Campaigners from South Yorkshire Migration and Asylum Action Group and City of Sanctuary have organised the protest, to take place outside Sheffield Town Hall tomorrow, at 12.30pm.
