Action Week 2021: students unite to close the barracks

In September 2020, the Home Office started using ex-military barracks in Kent (Napier) and Pembrokeshire (Penally) as accommodation for people seeking asylum. The barracks are ‘impoverished, run-down and unsuitable’ accommodation for people who have fled war, torture, and persecution.
Last month, STAR groups joined a national campaign action to put pressure on the Home Office to #CloseTheBarracks. Students across the UK took to social media to share news stories and experiences of people living in the barracks and to tweet the Home Office and their local MPs to demand an end to detaining people in prison-like conditions.
