WAST Women March for Human Rights
Around 80 people joined in Liverpool today to March for justice for asylum seekers. Lead by the women from WAST, supporters included Merseyside Womens Movement, Sahir House, other local community activists. The march set off from St George's plateau and marched down Dale Street, along to Reliance House on Water street. The march then headed back to the plateau to hear from inspirational speakers.
The march was organised by the women from WAST (Women Asylum Seekers Together) specifically to hand in a list of demands for justice to the UKBA, from their members who are suffering and being denied human rights as asylum seekers.
