Local paper stands up for what is right

Leicester City of Sanctuary are proud of the local press The Leicester Mercury. They have followed the campaign to stop the deportation of grandmother Evenia Mawongera all the way as she suffers in detention in Yarl’s Wood – now her 35th day. Yesterday they told the story of Evenia’s granddaughter (just 6 years old) who wrote to David Cameron asking if she could have her grandma aback. Today they published this editorial Mercury Opinion: Stop the deportation of Evenia.
