Content warning: contains reference to deportation and suicide.
British Airways is helping the UK government deport refugees back to danger, including LGBTQ asylum seekers who face persecution in their home countries.
And a new report from the Guardian has revealed that the number of people trying to take their own lives as they await deportation from the UK is rising.
It’s destroying lives. And there are now two suicide attempts everyday in the UK’s deportation centres, up 22% from last year.
We can stop this, but we need your help. We’re all set to file a Freedom of Information request with the Home Office to dig the dirt on their contract with British Airways. If we’re successful, we could reveal how much money the airline has made from deportations and prove that its choosing profit over peoples’ rights and lives.
If you donate today, we can hire a top legal advisor to make sure our request is 100% airtight so the government has to hand over the info we need. Then, we’ll splash that info all over the media with hard-hitting ads, so BA and the government can’t ignore us.
It could be enough to push BA to end these cruel deportations, but we can’t do it without your support.
Please can you donate to stop forced deportations?
