PRESS RELEASE: Activists picket UK Border Agency in London to protest the launch of ID Cards

Activists picket UK Border Agency in London to protest the launch of ID Cards

Activists from NoBorders, No2ID and other Initiatives demonstrated today at the headquarter of the UK Border Agency (Lunar House) in Croydon, London to protest against the introduction of ID Cards for non-EU citizens applying for, or renewing visas for study or marriage.

About the introduction of ID cards for migrants

Historically borders only existed at state boundaries, now however over the last year the government has repeatedly stated adamant that:

“border control can no longer be a fixed line on a map”

From Tuesday non-Europeans applying for, or renewing visas for study or marriage, will be required to attend a UK Border Agency centre. There they will be interrogated, fingerprinted, have their details stored on a database, and will be presented with a biometric ID Card. This is the first step in a wider strategy of internalising border controls so we all have to carry cards.

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.
