Govan Law Centre has asked Jeremy Corbyn to call on Serco Group to end their ‘Move on Protocol’ of lock change evictions.
Jeremy has said he is 100% behind scrapping this inhumane policy. His support puts further pressure on the home office and others to end the disgraceful treatment of Glasgow asylum seekers.
Mike Dailly represented Govan Law Centre at a round table discussion to brief Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition in the UK Parliament, and Richard Leonard Labour Leader in the Scottish Parliament.
It was a passionate and strong meeting held in Posilpark, Glasgow. Jeremy and Richard listened to the views of refugees, asylum seekers and the third sector organisations who are campaigning to change these policies.
Mike Dailly said: “Glasgow has come together to oppose the inhuman treatment of asylum seekers with community groups, law centres, charities, housing associations, religious leaders and elected members all working as one to oppose Serco’s DIY eviction policy.
We’re delighted the Leader of the Opposition will call for Serco’s DIY eviction policy to be scrapped immediately. Until that happens we will continue to challenge its legality in Scotland’s Supreme Courts’.
Govan Law Centre have been working with Positive Action in Housing, Shelter Chris Stephens MP and Paul Sweeney MSP and many others who are doing their very best to advocate on behalf some of the most vulnerable people in Scotland.
