Ask your MP to tell Priti Patel: #CloseTheBarracks now!

Will you meet your MP on Friday 19th March and ask them to join our campaign to close the barracks?

Thousands of you have already told the government to stop forcing refugees into unsafe old army barracks. 

Public pressure is working. So far, you have managed to:

  • Force the Home Office to order an independent review of the suitability of the barracks
  • Force the Home Office to cancel plans to house asylum seekers in portacabins next to Yarl’s Wood detention centre
  • Force Priti Patel to admit that housing vulnerable people in barracks may be in breach of their human rights and re-house more than 300 residents elsewhere

Now it's time to seize the moment and do something powerful together to close the barracks for good.

So we're asking you to help us turn the 19th of March in a mass day of action by inviting your local MP to a virtual meeting.

We’ll tell them this inhumane policy isn’t acceptable and as their local voters, we have the power to hold them to account. MPs have a duty to represent their constituents. They’ll also want your vote at the next election - so they have good reason to listen up.

We've already proven people power can lead to victory. Now, with so many depending on us, it’s time to win again.
