Sheffield Day of Action for refugee rights

Outside UK Visas & Immigration, Vulcan House, 6 Millsands, Sheffield S3 8NU "Riverside" district, close to Sheffield city centre

Your community needs you! Local campaigners are organising this day of action in Sheffield as part of Refugee Week 2021. These Walls Must Fall supporters will be taking action across the whole day outside Vulcan House, the Home Office building in Sheffield.

Sheffield says: We are here, we are not going to stand for the ongoing harassment and detention of our friends and neighbours! We stand in solidarity to fight these racist practices and plans in our city! They call on the management at Vulcan House to end mandatory reporting for migrants, to stop using racist raids vans, an end to the “hostile environment” and the new plan. Joining the fight can make a real difference, come down and join the action

Actions throughout the day:

8:30-9:30am, a group of protestors will be picketing the office with banners as the managers arrive at work, with banners showing that Sheffield will not stand for the harm and violence to our friends by the decisions made in this building every day.

12:45pm-1:15pm – Noisy Demo! Bring pots and pans, vuvuzelas, anything that makes a loud noise.

4pm – Letter Hand-In to Vulcan House management showing the harm they cause to us and our community. Followed by a big after work rally outside the building, carrying on with speeches, food and music till 6.30pm. Hosted by South Yorkshire Migration and Asylum Action Group. Speakers with experience of the hostile environment and allies will be speaking outside Vulcan House.
