Amnesty ‘sleep-out’ planned on campus

Members of the York Amnesty Society are planning a 12 hour sleep out as part of a campaign to highlight the plight of failed asylum seekers in the UK. Part of the nationwide ‘Still Human, Still Here’ campaign, next week will see students sleeping rough outside the Physics Exhibition Centre from 9pm to 9am, encouraging others to join them and sign a petition. First year Amnesty member, Thesi Harman commented, “we are here to highlight the human rights issue in forcing people to sleep rough because they won’t return to a country where they might be killed.”
