The demonstrators and their drums negotiated the small path which leads to the back fence - as close as it is possible to get to where people are being held. The whole of the back fence is screened to prevent those inside seeing the protestors, however a little help from the samba band and a megaphone ensures that the protest is heard by all. Several replying shouts were heard from the accomodation block.
Close campsfield demonstrations are held on the last Saturday of every month.
