Saturday 18 October - Justice for Nadir Zarebee! Manchester!
On Saturday 18 October supporters of Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! supported a demonstration called by the International Organisation of Iranian Refugees in Manchester to protest over the BBC censorship of the death of Nadir Zarebee. Nadir hanged himself on 5 August 2008 in a park in Longsight, Manchester after being evicted from his home by the racist Home Office. This was the latest in a number of protests against the BBC who have refused to report on the real desperate situation of asylum seekers in Manchester and which drove Nadir to commit suicide.
