Denise McNeil, one of the Yarl’s Wood hunger strikers locked up in Holloway prison (see SchNEWS 753) has been released on bail. Denise was banged up following her role in the migrants rebellion in February last year (see SchNEWS 709) and before that had been kept in detention for over a year.
Her release on Tuesday (25th) saw her reunited with her family for the first time in 28 months. A coalition of migrant rights groups, friends and supporters have campaigned tirelessly for her release since she was locked away. Two more of the Yarl’s Wood hunger strikers, Sheree Wilson and Aminata Camara, remain incarcerated in Holloway.
