This coming Tuesday 20th January will be the fourth day of action against BMI Airlines. We once again call on all those who oppose the deportation industry and the inhumane treatment of migrants to contact BMI and let them know what you think of their profiteering from this cruel practice.
As the campaign against them gathers pace, it is clear that BMI will be beginning 2009 in a similar way to that of 2008. Last January, the airline were heavily criticised for twice attempting to deport Veneera Aliyeva and her two young children who had been living in Swansea.
Since then, BMI have been involved in numerous deportations, carrying out the UK government’s dirty work. BMI have made possible the forced removal of people back to situations that they fear, in the name of profit.
Nigel Turner BMI CEO has told us previously that he is satisfied that adequate safeguards are in place for those being deported. We believe this is simply not the case. And things are set to get even worse!
From January 30th this year, deportations will no longer be automatically stopped when an application for a Judicial Review is submitted. The Home Office have also expressed their desire to further restrict and remove certain appeal rights in the proposed Borders, Immigration and Citizenship Bill.
Use the information below to contact BMI to make their phones and faxes as busy as possible on January 20th, and every month thereafter until they stop making money from this misery.
