OSIME BROWN: URGENT ACTION
The union is supporting the campaign to stop the deportation of Osime Brown, a 21-year-old, black, autistic, learning-disabled man imprisoned on a ‘joint enterprise’ conviction for being present when a mobile phone was stolen. Osime has been given a date of 7 October for his release from prison into the custody of the immigration service in preparation for his deportation to Jamaica. We have to act urgently.
There is an online petition to support Osime’s www.bit.ly/osime-b
There is also a demonstration at the Home Office in London this Friday between 1 and 4pm.
All union members are encouraged to support this campaign by signing the petition and attending the demonstration.
Please do circulate this as widely as possible.
