Solidarity Demonstration Mounted At UCC In Support Of Hamza Khan And His Family

Hamza Khan and his family have been issued with a deportation order 


Staff and students gathered at the college to support the Khan family in a demonstration organised by the college's student union 

The four brothers, their parents and sister have been living in direct provision since arriving in Ireland in 2017 but the family have been told that they are to be deported to the UK on Thursday after they were denied international protection 

The family say they want to stay in Ireland, continue their children's education in Cork and give back to the country that they have made home 

The lunchtime demonstration was attended by a large number of staff and students
