Anti-Deportation Ireland (ADI) is a national, multi-ethnic grassroots network/alliance of activists, asylum seekers, refugees, community workers, trade unionists, and academics who have come together to campaign against forced deportation in Ireland, and the supporting system of direct provision for people seeking asylum.
ADI firmly believes that forced deportation is inhuman, unnecessary and a violation of an individual’s fundamental human rights, especially the right to seek and receive protection.
Forced deportations legitimise force and institutionalise brutality against asylum seekers and undocumented migrants. The harsh methods of physical control and restraint and the often abusive/racist language used to enforced removals cause unending physical and emotional trauma. Those at risk of deportation include people severely traumatised by war, physically and/or mentally ill, vulnerable children. Deportation often destroys families, relationships and personal lives, and disrupts people’s education and life prospects. It is linked to the suicides of those within the system, and following their deportation.
ADI has the following specific demands:
1. An immediate end to all deportations.
2. The immediate ending of the direct provision system.
3. The right to work for people seeking asylum.
In the immediate future, ADI will enable effective action to be taken through:
• documenting the human and financial costs of deportations, based on the literature already existing in Ireland and abroad, and on individuals’ personal testimonies.
• raising awareness amongst the general public about these issues through meetings and seminars, and through its publications
