Call to Action:Shut Down Dungavel



Called by the STUC and the Glasgow Campaign to Welcome Refugees:

The new Tory government in Westminster spells bad news for refugees and other immigrants.  On the other hand the SNP has been the most positive and welcoming of all the major political parties.  This demonstration calling for the closure of Dungavel and all the other detention centres gives us the chance to strengthen the SNP’s resolve and let the Westminster government know they have a fight on their hands.  We will not let the next five years degenerate into a festival of xenophobia.  Scapegoating immigrants hurts us as well.  Note Ian Duncan Smith’s idea for plastic cards and no cash for those on benefits, first tried out on asylum seekers.  

Join the demonstration.  Both SWAN and the STUC are running buses.

We want to develop a network of service users, practicitioners, academics and students to support radical and progressive social work. We need a social work that is ready to challenge oppressive practice, that means working collectively across the country and internationally to advance Social Work.
