Green Party leader at Sheffield protest

The leader of the Green Party met asylum seekers and support workers at the multi-agency drop-in at Victoria Hall during a fleeting visit to Sheffield. Natalie Bennett came to the city to support a demonstration against the Immigration Bill and took the opportunity to learn more about local organisations and meet individuals seeking sanctuary. The Bill, currently going through Parliament, will make life harder for many migrants by creating a hostile environment where landlords and health administrators will be required to check people’s immigration status, and many will lose the right to appeal against their immigration decision. You can read Ms Bennett’s blog about the Bill, and her visit to Sheffield, here.
