Un-policing the borders!

This Tuesday representatives of the European Border Agency FRONTEX, various UK police forces and the Identity and Passport Service are gathering in central London for a conference under the title “Policing the Border”.

The conference, which claims to secure the border against “illegal immigration” and terrorism, will also be attended by representatives of many security companies and feature an exhibition about border security and surveillance.

Together these companies and agencies create a Fortress Europe where every year thousands of people in the desert, in the Mediterranean Sea and in the Atlantic Ocean die try to enter. Furthermore their policies and actions deny basic rights to millions of “undocumented migrants” within Europe, and help to create
an atmosphere of suspicion where everyone is under surveillance for unnamed “crimes”.

London No Borders is fundamentally opposed to a world in which people are denied their freedom of movement because of the colour of their skin, their bank balance, or their nationality.

Un-police the border! Freedom of movement for all!
