Hunger strike is over
8:00am Friday 16th May 2014 in News
A hunger strike by 50 detainees at Campsfield House immigration detention centre, Kidlington, ended on Saturday.
Campaigners said the action ended at the Langford Lane centre because of concerns following an outbreak of flu.
The protesters called for all immigration centres to close and Close Campsfield campaigner Bill MacKeith said they “should be able to live in society with support if they are not allowed to work”.
The centre opened in 1993 and is run by private firm MITIE. It takes up to 216 men whose cases have yet to be resolved.
