The second day of the Women for Refugee Women challenge has runover its two day allotment in the high court. So now we’ll now have to wait for a new hearing date. See the story below and our earlier posts for more on this.
Meanwhile on the same day, there was a call by local protestors to make a stand at the IRC gates to stop the removal of womenheld in the IRC to a flight bound for Nigeria. It attracted a group of passionate people, young and old – some of whom succeeded in delaying the coach journey to the aiport by standing on the public highway. Read the BBC News report here to find out what happened. Our image shows the large number of police drafted into position as the large coach (carrying only three women) drove out at speed on its way to Birmingham Airport.
