Mass lobby of parliament for vulnerable women on 4th November

Amnesty lobbyWomen with insecure immigration status fleeing violence cannot access the benefits they need to get protection and support. Due to their extreme vulnerability, immediate action is needed; the UK is in breach of its international human rights obligations while this situation persists.

Amnesty UK is organising a mass lobby of parliament on Wednesday November 4th to urge the UK government to ensure equal protection for all women facing violence in the UK. It’s hoped that hundreds of people will go to the House of Commons to raise the same concern with their MPs at the same time.
