Protest at Campsfield
On Thursday 29th September 2022, there was a “site visit” by potential tenderers interested in the Campsfield contract. Campaigners were at the main gates to show that local people want the companies to drop their plans to bid to rebuild and run the detention centre. This was the first demonstration at Campsfield since 2018.
