We need your support addressing the ongoing consequences of Saja's Deportation

As many of you know, Saja Tunkara was deported in October 2018. He is currently living in Gambia while ShaCorrie, his wife, works tirelessly to figure out a way to reunite their family.

On the one hand, it is an improvement that he does not have to suffer under the daily trauma of living in a cage in the infamous Northwest Detention Center where his basic needs were ignored, he was consistently dehumanized, and he was forced to work for $1 a day. 

At the same time, this forced separation from his family means he is not able to be with ShaCorrie and their kids (Sasha and Adama). Furthermore, the medical infrastructure in Gambia is poor due to histories of colonization and racialized capitalism and he does not have access to the medical care he needs. The medical conditions that were neglected while he was in the detention center are worsening, and at this time, due to the untreated tumor in his neck, he has difficulty even talking. 

To ensure he gets the medical care he needs so he and his family can continue to stay connected and fight the racist deportation machinery in the US, we are working to raise $2,000. This will make it so he can fly to Great Britain to access humanitarian medical care. Any support you can offer is much appreciated by the Tunkara family and Resistencia/NWDCR! Solidarity and love!!
