UK Border Agency & G4S: Do not evict Cha Matty

From Zoe Williams: "The UK Border Agency backed down, and Cha isn't being evicted. They may have backed down due to a number of things - a journalist on the Independent was on their case as well - but the pressure you put on by signing this petition was absolutely invaluable. Thanks, everybody, so much."

Cha Matty, asylum seeker mother with a two-year-old daughter, blew the whistle on conditions at a G4S run hostel three months ago.

She appeared in front of a select committee, and spoke to journalists. Now the UK Border Agency are evicting her and stopping all financial support, leaving them both destitute.

The given reason for the eviction is that she has failed to return a form; in fact, she has returned it twice.

We're asking the UK Border Agency to reconsider.

      It is never acceptable to make a child homeless and in this case the circumstances clearly need clearing up.
