Asylum-seekers and migrants who have been locked up indefinitely by the British state are carrying out one of the most sustained fight-backs in the UK in recent years. Three major detention centres have been destroyed, forcing the government to release hundreds of detainees. Hunger-strikes, occupations, naked protests, dirty protests and successful break-outs involving tens and hundreds of detainees have become a regular feature of immigration detention.
