A significant victory for Yarl’s Wood protests

Movement For Justice claimed victory when Yarl’s Wood’s longest serving detainee saw her deportation flight cancelled.

Mabel Gawanas defended herself in a judicial review and her deportation was postponed. Movement For Justice are now demanding her release after 22 months in detention.

Mabel has been a key member of the fight for rights inside Yarl’s Wood, calling a three day protest, supported 200 women detainees.

Antonia Bright of Movement for Justice said, “the growing movement to end detention is making victories more possible”.

There will be another rally outside the Yarl’s Wood detention centre on 7th May. A film event is planned, and it would be great if Mabel could join all the other supporters at the rally outside the detention centre on the 7th. Release her now.
