leader threatened



Protest at the US embassy

Monday 5 February 5.30-6.30pm

33 Nine Elms Lane  SW8 5BL 10 min walk from  Vauxhall

Maru Mora-Villalpando, a US based community organiser and mother has been served with a deportation notice despite living with her daughter in the US for over 20 years. She is one of many outspoken, undocumented campaigners – from Haiti, Trinidad, Central and Latin America -- targeted by the Trump administration as part of its attacks against immigrant communities. Deportations have risen by nearly 50% as a result.

Maru leads the Northwest Detention Center Resistance (NWDCR), an organization co-founded when immigrants held at the Center went on hunger strike in 2014 protesting their inhumane treatment. Since then, Maru has led campaigning that has made the Detention Center a site of local resistance with weekly rallies and vigils outside its gates.  She is also part of an international network of anti-deportation campaigners.

No Detention, No Deportation


We cannot allow organisers like Maru, who have stood up
for others, to be targeted.

We cannot allow families to be wrenched apart.


Millions worldwide are fleeing war, genocide and starvation caused by the policies of the US and other Western governments and corporations. The work of those of us from the Global South creates wealth for the Global North, We have a right to safety, to cross borders and to claim our rights.” says Margaret Prescod Women of Color/ Global Women’s Strike US.
