Families of the Week

Special feature this week with the release of the much awaited Price of Love documentary, by Don McVey. Some of you may recall seeing him at the London demo outside the Home Office on 9th July last year with a handful of you interviewed on the day as well.  The result is an extremely powerful and moving account of the devastation wreaked by UK's immigration rules on British citizens:

Alison & Tanik - with their two daughters have moved to Ireland as only means to live together, and indeed live at all, given events in Turkey.

Gethin & Elena - parents, children, siblings separated.  Mum and child in Russia. Dad and child in Wales.

Sally & Walter - battling against the HO's deportation attempts, whilst simultaneously battling cancer.

The fantastic video online at: http://www.priceoflovedoc.com/  where you'll probably see familiar faces - maybe even yourself!
