Global Justice protest local links to US child detention

Activists from Global Justice Bexhill and Hastings have stated their intention to protest on Friday 23 November at 9am outside the offices of Hastings firm, General Dynamics UK on Castleham Road, St Leonards over the role of its parent company in the detention of refugee children in the United States, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick. A letter has gone from the local group  to the CEO/ Managing Director requesting a meeting to discuss their concerns.

Help! Deportation threat to long-term resident

Originally from Argentina, Jorge Labbe Herrera, has lived in Hastings for 18 years and has made a valuable contribution to the local community. He is now in danger of being deported. As his court appeal is at the end of January, there is no time to lose. HOT’s Chandra Masoliver talks with Jorge about his life in Hastings, and describes some of the ways he has dedicated himself to benefiting our town.

Help local family save Javad from deportation

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about a young man called Javad and the any-day-now threat of his deportation back to Iran. To try and prevent this, a petition for the Home Office had been created by the family offering him a home and local people who know him. Signatures have been added to the petition, but more are needed – and I am writing again, to ask you to consider signing, if you haven’t as yet. With gratitude on behalf of all those connected to Javad, writes Zelly Restorick. I assure you 100% that this is a genuine situation about local people and their deep love for a young man they wish to protect and offer a safe haven.

Save Javad from deportation

The local people who have created this petition for the Home Office are totally genuine and trustworthy. Sonia Plato, a recently retired CEO, Sousan Lari, a tutor, and Terry Alexander, also a tutor and one half of the couple who have offered Javad a safe space to be, have sent out the petition in the hope of preventing this young man from being deported to Iran. They are honest and caring people – and I know 100% that this petition can be trusted as real and sincere, writes Zelly Restorick. Their concern for Javad’s safety is genuine. Please read on and sign the petition – and make a difference to the life of this young man and those who care for him and wish for him to stay within the safety of his new family.
