The group “Grandparents for Asylum” organized a demonstration in Copenhagen at Nytorv last Friday. Around 150 people participated in the demonstration.
According to the organizers an increasing number of mentally ill people and families with children are being deported these days and the main requests from the demonstrators to the authorities were painted on banners saying: “Stop forced deportations of mentally ill” and “Human rights are being violated”.
