Hi everyone!

I just saw this on - it's a petition to stop a student at Bangor University from being deported to Sri Lanka. She's due to be deported tomorrow night with her mum, and she's three months away from sitting her finals in the U.K.

Please could you all sign and share?

Thank you so much!!!

Why shouldn't she be deported? Because she's doing well at Uni?

PamplemousseRouge Do you have a personal connection with this story, or did it pop up in your emails like it did with me? Just unsubscribe otherwise you will get many 'similar' notifications.

And yes, I too would like to know the back story.
