European Commission confirms, once again, the validity of free movement in Europe for people to be with their families.


Article 21(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) stipulates that every citizen of the Union shall have the right to move and reside freely within the  territory of the Member States, subject to the limitations and conditions laid down in the  Treaties and by the measures adopted to give them effect.

Thanks to Nate for sharing this.

High court judge rules against Nigerian man Isa Muazu, who is near death after 90-day protest while awaiting deportation :

https://twitter.com/DetentionAction :
'We are deeply saddened by the High Court decision to refuse to release the hunger striker from immigration detention. We are very worried.
Isa came to the UK fearing for his life, it's heart breaking that he may die on a mattress on the floor of an immigration detention centre.'

'Home Office can choose life. But is choosing death for this man in #detention centre by not releasing him. '
