A protest is to be held in George Square this weekend to protest against the latest round of asylum seeker evictions in Glasgow.

We told yesterday how campaigners are warning that dozens could be left destitute within weeks.

The Evening Times understands eviction orders have been granted to Home Office contractor Serco to remove at least 45 individuals from their homes from October 31.

Campaigners from the "Glasgow No Evictions" group are gathering in George Square on Saturday to "stand against evictions, against the government's racist policies" and to "call on the council to provide services for destitute and homeless people."

They are planning to meet in the square at 1pm.

A Facebook event for the demo reads: "We will not stand by while people are being forced into destitution and street homelessness.

"Come join us to make our voices heard in the fight against the hostile environment."

Throughout the summer Glasgow Sheriff Court granted hundreds of interim interdicts to delay the removal of vulnerable refugees from their homes across the city.

The outcome of a Court of Session appeal on the legality of Serco’s lock-change evictions is yet to be shared.

But campaigners say they fear for the future of those who will be made destitute from October 31 onwards, when orders become active.

Serco, which handed over the contract for asylum seeker housing to Mears last month, remains responsible for many who they say have exhausted their appeals process to remain in the UK.

However charities have repeatedly stated that many of those at risk have active asylum claims, with Mears committing to not carrying out any of the contentious lock-change evictions currently being challenged.

Reports earlier this summer suggested that Serco has been monitoring asylum seekers, and successfully evicted two people from their homes in August.

When asked whether those who are set to be forced from their homes will be provided support by Serco, the contractor did not provide any examples of care available from them.

Jenni Halliday, Serco’s operations director, said: “Our contract in Scotland with the Home Office ended a month ago which means that Serco no longer has responsibility for providing housing for asylum seekers in Glasgow.

“We are however still paying rent, entirely at our own cost, for a number of former asylum seekers and we are continuing to work, including through the courts, to return these properties to individual landlords.

“Other sources of support are available to any individuals considered to be destitute or have an active asylum claim and is a matter for the Home Office and local authority to determine in each individual case.”

The Home Office said they were working with partners to support those affected.

A spokesperson added:“We take the wellbeing of asylum seekers and the local communities in which they live extremely seriously.

“Together with charities we have engaged with every individual affected over a number of months to provide advice and guidance on the support and options available to them.”
