To me there is a very clear humanitarian reason for them to be allowed to stay in Glasgow where the community has taken them to their hearts.
On Monday, 19th July at 5.30 pm there will be a vigil in Glasgow in support of Florence and Precious. It takes place right in the centre of the city virtually next door to Queen St Station and Buchanan Bus Station at the statue of Donald Dewar.
This is the message Anne McLaughlin MSP sent to all members of the Facebook Group supporting Florence and Precious.
On this coming Monday at 5.30pm, in conjunction with the Unity Centre, we are holding a Glasgow Fair Monday vigil for Florence and Precious.
It will be at the top of Buchanan Street at the bottom of the stairs outside the Buchanan Galleries.
We will be asking "on Fair Monday, what's fair about separating a mother and child?".
I would appeal to those of you who are able to be there, to come and show your support.
This is not a political DEMO but a peaceful humanitarian vigil for two human beings who need our love and support now more than ever.
Therefore although I expect many politicians and activists will be present, the speakers will be Florence and Precious's friends, the people who know them best.
I will send you more details shortly - we may ask you to bring something symbolic with you - so please look out for it.
My health hasn't been great these past few days, so I can't promise to be there - although if I can go I will - but I hope that as many people as possible will turn out. If you work in Glasgow, and you feel as strongly about this as I do, please stop by on your way home on Monday to show solidarity with Florence and Precious. They need so badly to be allowed to stay in this country and to be freed from the constant uncertainty, fearing this might be the day the authorities might force them back to Malawi and a very difficult future apart.
I know from previous experience that people in this situation can be spared deportation with support from the public so you could make a difference.
