Stop the deportation of our player

We are campaigning to stop one of our cricket players Syed Ahad Rizvi and his sister Anum Fatima being deported (removed in the Home Office’s jargon) from the country. They have been taken from their family and are currently in an ‘immigration removal centre’. The family are seeking asylum after their extended family and community were threatened by the militant groups Sipah-e-Sahaba and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi which are linked with the Taliban.

Please visit our website to sign the petition and find out what else you can do to help.

UWE students see off biggest military business and arms fair in the South West, call for independent review, and announce national protest at UWE Bristol on 14 April

On 20 November 2013, UWE students “staged an ‘impeccable’ protest”1 against DPRTE, the military business and arms fair held at UWE in 2012 and 2013. Despite widespread hostility as well as systematic silencing, manipulation, repression and criminalisation, sometimes extending to threatened and actual violence from DPRTE participants, university security and the police, humble yet determined protests proved sufficient to see off the biggest military business and arms fair in the South West2. Early today, campaigning students released an open letter to UWE’s Board of Governors demanding an transparent, comprehensive and independent review into the university, following the repression against their peaceful protests, including direct efforts of UWE VC and the university’s Head of Security to intimidate and criminalise peaceful protesters. Campaigning UWE students also confirmed that activists and supporters will gather at UWE Bristol on 14 April 2014 for a national action called for by the Campaign Against the Arms Trade in solidarity with repressed UWE students, to denounce UWE’s collusion with the military and as part of the Global Day of Action Against Military Spending.
