Protestors occupied Barnardo's HQ for over two and a half hours this
afternoon. There was also a lively solidarity demo outside with around 50
people including a samba band.
Barnardo's declined the requests of the occupiers to speak to the chief
exec. After some time they said that a senior staff member would meet with
the occupiers but they then reneged on their promise and got police to
violently eject the three protestors who remained inside.
Shortly afterwards Barnardo's staff left the building via the back exit
and protestors decided to leave for today, vowing to continue their
protest until Barnardo's ends their involvement in child detention.
