ACT TO STOP RACIST IMMIGRATION PROPOSALS!

Protest organised by the National Union of Students Women's 
Campaign - All Welcome

Since coming to power New Labour has not only kept all the 
Tory immigration/asylum legislation, but they have made it 
worse.  Their latest proposals bely belief in terms of 
their discriminatory nature.

Visitors to Britain from the Indian sub-continent who are 
considered "borderline cases", in terms of whether they 
will overstay their visa in the UK, are to be charged a 
£5,000 bond before being permitted to enter Britain.

Not only is the specification of visitors from India, 
Pakistan and Bangladesh racist in the extreme, these 
proposals are also totally discriminatory against poorer 
people.  Many Asian families will simply be unable to 
afford to visit Britain to see family or friends.

This is typical of the governments harsh attitude to 
immigration and asylum.  Such proposal will also stir up 
racism.

We demand that this proposal is immediately dropped and 
that the racist immigration and asylum legislation be 
scrapped.

Join us in a protest - THURS, 10TH FEB, 5PM HOME OFFICE, 
QUEEN ANNE'S GATE

SPEAKERS: JEREMY CORBYN, NATIONAL CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT
