Israel is about to deport asylum seekers from Eritrea and Sudan to Rwanda apparently under a secret agreement.
It is reported that some deportation orders were issued by Israel last weekend.
Rwanda does not offer protection or legal status and many refugees will be forced to continue their journeys seeking safety elsewhere.
Previous deportees have reported harsh conditions, including torture and even death at the hands of smugglers and kidnappers.
To help convince Rwanda to not be complicit with this abuse, there is to be a demonstration today (Wednesday) at the Rwandan Mission to the UN, in New York City.
Time: 5:00-8:00 pm
Place: outside of the Rwandan Mission to the UN, East 39th Street between Park and Lexington. Details here
