TS-campaign at labour party event in Manchester

Supporters of Tamil Solidarity in Greater Manchester holding placards as we followed up our meeting with MP Ivan Lewis last week, with a leafleting of a Labour Party event in Prestwich in Ivan Lewis’ constituency. We distributed a leaflet urging British Labour Party members to contact the Australian Labor government and Labor party over the situation facing Tamil refugees on the boat in Merak, and handed a letter in for Foreign Secretary Milliband who was due to speak at the event. Mr Lewis reiterated his promise to respond to us soon over the points we raised about the secret camps, the slow closure of the detention camps, allegations of Tamil-speaking youth being used as cheap labour in the Special Economic Zones, and the boat in Merak.
