These a the words of Serge. Serge was tortured in his home country and fled to the UK to claim asylum.
Despite being a survivor of torture, serge was detained for immigration purposes in the UK. Detention is profoundly damaging to mental and physical health, especially for those who have survived torture. Anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, self-harm and suicidal thoughts are commonly reported by people in detention. For those who've survived torture, detention is often a scary reminder of their detention and torture in their home country - it is hugely retraumatising.
Despite this, and a High Court judgment in 2017 that ruled detaining people who survived torture was unlawful, the Home Office is still detaining survivors. Current safeguards are failing to protect vulnerable people from entering detention, such as the Home Office’s flawed Adults at Risk policy.
Every year, the UK Government detains around 30,000 people for immigration purposes. The UK is the only European country to have no time limit on immigration detention.
Officially, immigration detention is an administrative process where people, such as refused asylum seekers, are held before deportation. In reality, less than 50% of people are deported and most are released.
It's vital we stop this. Visit the link in our bio to find out more.

4 Lagos SARS operatives sacked for #robbery , #kidnapping and #unlawful#detention
The Assistant Inspector General in charge of zone 2 command, AIG Adamu Ibrahim, has upheld the recommendation of police #disciplinary body that recommended #dismissal of four policemen attached to Special Anti Robbery #Squad Ikeja, Lagos.
The four policemen, were charged to court on offences of Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, Unlawful detention, Intimidation and threatening violence, after one Chukwudi Godwin Odionye submitted a petition against them on May, 2, 2018.
Odionye stated that on the 4th of June 2017, he was in his house around Alagbado, when the four armed men stormed his house to effect his arrest on the allegation of performing 'FAKE' miracles.
He stated that after his arrest, he was taken to one #hotel at Agege where he was detained and threatened to be killed if he fails to cooperate. He explained further that on the following day, he was taken to the #bank where he was made to transfer N7m to one of the operative's #account . .
Investigation revealed that no proper police procedure for Investigation was followed in Odionye's arrest and that the four SARS operatives actually abducted him from his house and #Unlawfully detained him in the hotel.
The policemen are Sgt Adeoye Adekunle, Sgt AdeniraAdebowale, Sgt Agbi Lucky and Sgt Odighe Hehosa. .
They were found guilty during the orderly room #trial for professional misconduct, corrupt practices and discreditable conduct and were dismissed and consequently charged to court on criminal charges of Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, Unlawful Detention, Stealing, Intimidation and threatening violence.

Big dumb story: My sophomore year, I had a substitute teacher for my 5th period class which, basically means nothing important was happening. Now, the way our 5th period worked, it was shorter and overlapped with lunch so some kids were at lunch while others were in 5th period and then we'd swap. This made it pretty easy to ditch class and take a double lunch, which is what a friend and I decided to do. We got out of class and enjoyed our first lunch, all we had to do was hide out in the bathroom til 2nd lunch began. So at the end of 1st lunch we found a bathroom. We fought over who would get the handicap stall and after a bit of horsing around, my friend pushed my scrawny ass out of the big stall so I took the smaller one. We waited for the bell to ring signifying the start of 2nd lunch. Nice. Now we can just walk out and blend in with the other kids. We decide to stagger leaving the bathroom so he went first and I waited a minute before following. Sweet freedom. But as soon as I get outside, there's 2 security guards, a teacher, my friend, and another kid who's pointing and saying "that's the other guy!" We get escorted to the office and are questioned separately. Apparently the other student told his teacher that we were hanging out in the bathroom and laughing in the stalls. They make me empty all my things out, including my shoes. One security guard put my fingernails to his nose and gave me a stern look claiming "if you smoke weed, it stays in your nails" and if you're imbued with the super powers of a high school security guard, you'll be able to smell it. After hours of searching and questioning, they obviously find nothing. This was a year before I'd even try weed (which I did on campus, anyways). They wanted to give me 2 weeks of Saturday school but I talked my way into 2 weeks of lunch detention so my parents wouldn't find out. Sorry, mom.

В прошлом посте мы писали, как до вас добирается груз из Китая. И, так как наши с вами отношения основаны на кристальной честности, сейчас мы поговорим, каких подводных камней стоит опасаться в этом виде перевозок.
Во-первых, чтобы для вас это прошло безболезненно, при подписании документов проверьте, входят ли в него погрузка и разгрузка в терминалах, в которых окажется ваш груз. Оговорены ли условия временного хранения. Подумайте о страховке, если везёте что-то, что можно сломать или разбить.
После прибытия груза в порт, у вас есть некоторое время для разгрузки, оформления и доставки контейнера от порта до склада и возврата порожнего контейнера. Если вы превышаете этот период, то на вас накладывают штрафные санкции.
По сути это плата за сверхнормативное использование контейнера, который очень нужен судовладельцу, чтобы немедля загрузить его по новой.
Различают ставки на превышения сроков хранения контейнера после выгрузки и до вывоза с территории терминала (#демередж ) и превышения сроков использования контейнера с момента вывоза из порта до момента возврата его порожним (#детеншен ). Хотя, обычно никто не заморачивается и называют всё демереджем.
Обычно условия и сроки хранения прописываются в заявке, у каждого судовладельца и терминала они свои.
Кстати, помните, если вы везёте груз рефконтейнером или флэтреком, то тарифы на сверхнормативное использование будут выше.
Добросовестные менеджер всегда поможет подобрать оптимальную линию и терминал, чтобы условия и сервис были на высоком уровне, а заплатить за это пришлось совсем немного. 🐒
Not long now until class is in session! Though I may be stuck in detention (ie Sydney) you should head down to @flamingosdancebarhobart tonight to have headmistress @misspollyfilla teach you a few things!
P.s. I could not use these pics from last time I met Polly ;)
There were millions of everyday Germans that had no issue with what was happening during the Jewish Genocide. Most also didn’t care that is was happening. Some, actively took part in it. Few were outraged. Handful did something about it. Everyone suffered. We are repeating this with poor Hispanic children and women in the name of race and border. Jesus would be pissed at the way the Christians are treating fellow Christians. Have some mercy and defend the defenseless. #immigration#ice#detention#race#poverty#love#compassion#jesus#christ#children
Images from Moria refugee camp in Lesvos, Greece. Originally intended to hold 1,500 refugees awaiting word on their citizenship status, it now detains over 6,000, including young children. Many are in perpetuated limbo due to the 2016 EU-Turkey deal (google it), which is costly, ineffective, and generates inhumane detention processes. There is a spillover camp for men shown in the video whose bright signs of welcome aren't fooling anyone. The laws here are as arbitrary as the locked gate, easily circumvented by simply cutting a hole through a fence. Who is the criminal here? #moria#fortresseurope#dublinregulation#savepikpa#detention
