Last night, via Facebook I learned about the deportation of Hitch Yezza, "who has a been resident in the U.K. for 13 years, during which time he has studied for both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Nottingham" (facebook group info, 2008).
It's amazing that over two thousand Facebook members quickly joined The Global Support to Stop The Deporation of Hicham Yezza group and are rallying in support of Hitch. The situation is a reflection of our times, as political messages and protests are quickly spread via Web 2.0 media. (I'm in Southern California and learning about the deportation of this UK student, as the news is breaking).
My thoughts are for a peaceful and democratic resolution to this matter.
