Pinar Aksu Interview at European Forum on the Rights of the Child

After being detained in Yarlswood immigration removal centre, Pinar Aksu continued to campaign and speak about detention. She completed an undergraduate degree in community development and a Masters degree in human rights and international politics. Pinar works as a project coordinator, and uses theatre, workshops, grassroots organising and community campaigning as methods to raise awareness about asylum, refugee and immigration related issues.

You are locked behind the wall, and your rights as a child, your rights as a human being are taken away from you.

The EU and the UN need to find a mechanism to make States listen to what is needed and what needs to be done.
