Could you consider providing a bail address for Glory?

Dear friends and supporters

Glory, a member of the Lesbian Immigration Support Group (LISG) and also Women Asylum Seekers Together (WAST), was detained on December 4th, and since then she has been held in Yarl's Wood detention centre. We are trying to get her out of detention, so that she can return to Manchester and resume her life while she is waiting to hear about the outcome of her case. In order that she may be released, we have someone to stand bail for her.

However, she still needs a bail address in Manchester. We are looking for a person who would be able to offer a bail address for her. What this involves is being able to offer accommodation to Glory for perhaps 4 to 6 weeks (at which time her NASS accommodation support should come through). The group could contribute some money towards expenses (food etc.). Also, the person hosting her will need to appear in court, held in Birmingham (the judge will want to see them and ask them a few questions). The notification for the date of the court will be at rather short notice, a few working days.

If you yourself or any of your contacts can offer to host Glory (under the conditions mentioned above), we would be really grateful. It would mean that Glory can return to freedom rather than living in captivity and imprisonment in the detention centre. We worry about her health and well-being in detention. Could you spread this information to others too?

If you are thinking about it, can you contact lisg.manchester@yahoo.co.uk and let us know?  You could also telephone 07503 351922.


Many thanks
