A group of 25 migrants at the Comfort Inn in Pimlico, London, have taken a stand against the accommodation arrangements provided to them.

They decided not to go back to their assigned rooms and instead set up camp on the pavement just outside the hotel.

The migrants are adamant that they will sleep there, armed with their blankets, duvets, cushions, and suitcases, until their demands for single rooms are met.

Asylum seekers express frustration over living conditions

The migrants, who are seeking asylum in the UK, expressed their frustration over the living conditions within the hotel. They claimed that the shared rooms offered to them were inadequate, lacking privacy and compromising their well-being.

The decision to barricade themselves outside the hotel serves as a powerful demonstration of their dissatisfaction and a plea for improved accommodation arrangements.

Calls for resolution and empathy

This protest has brought attention to the challenges faced by migrants and asylum seekers, highlighting the importance of addressing their needs and ensuring their dignity is upheld.
