Last month, a video of Swedish student activist Elin Ersson went around the world when she refused to sit down on a plane. Her reason: the plane was deporting an Afghan man back home to his likely death in a war zone. She stood her ground until the man was let off the airplane.
Activists like her have forced airline companies to take a stand: either you profit off the inhumane deportation of humans, or you refuse to take part in this cruel practice. And many companies have gotten the message. From Virgin Atlantic to American and United -- they’ve all refused to work with the US or UK government in aiding forced deportations.
But British Airways is not willing to turn down a profit -- even if it comes at the expense of the lives of people.
If you chip in now, you can be part of a global movement of people protesting against unjust immigration policy. With your donation, we’ll plaster the airports with ads telling the truth behind BA’s profits from deportation. It will hit the company where it hurts: all its customers will see the ads and BA cannot afford the bad press. We’re ready to act. But we need your help to pull this off.
Please, will you chip in to stop British Airways from aiding in deportations?
