Without urgent action, Osime Brown, an innocent 21 year old black learning-disabled man will be moved to a detention centre on the 7th October, awaiting deportation to Jamaica. This is a country he left aged 4 where he has no friends, family or support in.
Osime's situation is a grim example of the racist and ableist nature of the British immigration and policing systems. We must urgently stop Osime's deportation, cancel his conviction, and fight to overthrow the brutality that puts anyone in this situation.

Free Osime Brown: Emergency Motion
"THIS ORGANISATION notes the case of Osime Brown, a young, autistic, learning-disabled man who was imprisoned as a teenager under a 'joint enterprise' conviction for a crime he did not commit. He now faces deportation to Jamaica, a country he left at the age of four and where he knows no one. Osime has suffered racist abuse and become seriously ill while in prison.
THIS ORGANISATION resolves to support Osime Brown's campaign to overturn his conviction and his deportation order, and send £X to the campaign fund."
