ISABELLA ACEVEDO SPEAKS OUT 

Earlier this year you will remember Isabella Acevedo was front-page news for a number of days. Before the story broke Mark Harper – then Minister for Immigration ordered a raid of her home. Fortunately Isabella was out! Isabella and her family were forced in to hiding and have been ever since – fearful for their lives and ongoing harassment from media outlets. Here Isabella speaks out for the first time. Please share.

URGENT DONATIONS NEEDED!

It is extremely difficult to set up and run a legal case when being forced into hiding. It is also very difficult to obtain another job, pay rent, afford food, feel secure when employees, schools, doctors and landlords are now legally obliged to report ‘undocumented’ people to the police.
 
We have managed to raise just over £2000 for Isabella and her family. All of this has been used. As Isabella and Mark Harper are no longer in the news contributions have come to an abrupt holt around 1 month ago. We need to raise £10,000 – urgently.
 
No contribution is too small! However if you are wealthy please make a sizeable donation! Very important – please contribute!

THE CASE OF ISABELLA ACEVEDO

 Last month Movimiento Jaguar Despierto and Tawantinsuyu Nation organised a special event to raise awareness of Isabella Acevedo's situation. Deepa was invited to speak on the broader context of Isabella’s case. Two short films very much worth watching! Part 1 & Part 2.
