UK’s Inhuman Treatment of Asylum Seekers

Just a few links, they speak for themselves. These are vulnerable people, they are people who have suffered massively, sometimes for doing such heroic things as daring to speak out against the regimes in their countries, or organising in their communities to teach writing, reading and civil rights. And after escaping torture, false imprisonment, rape, and every other form of injustice, thinking they are finally safe, they find instead that our Government and its agencies treat them absolutely inhumanly.

This is abhorrent.
