VUCAJ CHILDREN - THEY BELONG TO GLASGOW CAMPAIGN LAUNCH
Mood:  caffeinated
Topic: Anger Is An Energy.
VUCAJ CHILDREN - THEY BELONG TO GLASGOW CAMPAIGN LAUNCH - ACTOR, DIRECTOR PETER MULLAN TO LEAD THE CAUSE



Public Meeting details: 6.45 pm, Thursday 20 October 2005, STUC Headquarters, 333 Woodlands Road, Glasgow G3.



Speakers include: Peter Mullan, Robina Qureshi, Politicians, friends and neighbours and school friends of the Vucaj family.



To confirm your attendance, email home@paih.org.



Peter Mullan, Glasgow’s award winning actor and director, will lead the launch of a new campaign designed to return the recently deported Vucaj family back to Glasgow and Scotland.



Called “They belong to Glasgow” Campaign, Mullan will introduce a film and speak about his recent trip to Albania to meet the Vucaj family at a public meeting to be held at 6.45 pm on Thursday 20th October 2005 in the Scottish Trade Union Centre, Woodlands Road, Charing Cross, Glasgow G3.



Footage of the trip and an interview with 13 year old Saida Vucaj will be shown and Peter will be joined by politicians from across the political spectrum and young friends of Saida, Elvis and Nimet from Drumchapel, Glasgow.



The campaign objective is the safe return of the Vucaj family by any legal means possible.



Robina Qureshi, Director of Positive Action in Housing, who led the recent Albanian trip jointly with Peter Mullan on 9-12 October, said today:



“These children have lived in Glasgow for five years. Saida was only seven when she arrived. She is now 13 and her and her two brothers, Elvis (18) and Nimet (16) consider themselves Glaswegian and Scottish. We are determined to organise their safe return to our city where they were welcomed and educated. I plead to First Minister Jack McConnell and Scotland’s Parliament to help them to return. This is their home, not Albania. Saida, in particular, is in danger. Child trafficking for prostitution is rife in Northern Albania where they have been returned to. We need them back now before it’s too late.”



Peter Mullan added:



“Saida, Nimet and Elvis Vucaj belong to Glasgow. They think like Glaswegians, they talk like Glaswegians. They have been forcibly kidnapped from us and transplanted into a country that can best be described as pre-industrial. Their new home is an empty hovel on a Northern Albanian mountain that was ransacked in their absence and is the direct line of a major sex trafficking route leaving them unspeakably vulnerable. These young Glaswegian kids have been taken from us and abandoned to a life of unimaginable despair. One of the few men who remain of the village stepped forwards to the kids when we were with them and asked what they were doing there. The kids said they didn’t know - they were Scottish. He opened up a weird toothless smile and said “You must go. Stay here and you die”. All we ask is that these children are brought back to the only home that they know, Glasgow!”



Meeting details: 6.45 pm, Thursday 20 October 2005, STUC Headquarters, 333 Woodlands Road, Glasgow G3.

All I have to add to the above is that we have stacks of room in Glasgow and I'd like to keep the Vucaj's, they seem like a nice bunch.

Cheerio

Name: Ewen

Depressing stuff. Another family was recently condemned to return to Pakistan where their Islamic sect is seen as blasphemous. Essentially mobs are given carte blanche to hound and attack them. They had lived here for a couple of years, the children were especially bright. Such a fucking waste. Why does nobody understand that this country actually needs people like this?

The bureaucratic machine is unfeeling and looks at each case in abstract terms. The problem is, the general public who can act as a catalyst for change just shrug and move on. They read the Sun and the Daily Mail, who will tell you that whilst it's a jolly rotten shame they are being removed from their new country, they shouldnt have been here in the first place blahblahblah.............Which the mollusc brained tossers parrot at you like it was something they had actually spent more than five minutes thinking about.

The meeting is in my neck of the woods, so theres no excuse for me not to be there.

Bye.

I know what you mean. I think the only thing that would get the general public going is a tax increase or something that prevented them spending Saturday afternoon wandering around a shopping centre.
