Opposing the Launch of ID Cards, London, November 25th

Biometric ID cards will come into force for non-EU students and spouses from 25th November and will be issued from offices in Birmingham, Cardiff, Croydon, Glasgow, Liverpool, and Sheffield.

We will be holding a protest outside the Home Office building (Lunar House) in Croydon, London and hope for protests outside each of the other offices on that day.

Protests are also announced in Cardiff: Cardiff, Glasgow and Liverpool

Press Release 25th November

Borders are rising around all of us, immigration law already gives the Home Office powers it would like to exert over everybody. We are against repression in all its forms and the many controls which would restrict the lives of everyone. The UK is becoming a mass surveillance society, migrants are at the very sharp end. We see the launch of ID cards for some migrants as a further step to the general introduction of ID cards and the strenghtening of control in the UK.

By resisting the repression of migrants, we defend the freedom of everyone!
