"Days of Action against the Racist Press" , METRO did not like it.

It appears that as part of the "Days of Action against the Racist Press" some people have distrubuted a freesheet called "metr0" all over London last Friday which shared some similarities with the well known "METRO free newspaper", which is published by Associated Newspapers Ltd, who are also behind the "Daily Mail". The newspaper featured a headline stating that "Gordon Brown is to be deported to Scotland" and other articles related to racism in the British press.

Associated Newspapers Ltd appears not to be amused by the action, having sought a High Court injunction on Friday late night (!) against the distribution of the printed paper, and also tried (unsuccessfully so far) to close the website called "http://metr0.co.uk ". The collectives hosting the website have responded in a joint statement.
