Communications House November Picket

Yesterday’s No Borders London picket of Communications House was uneventful, just a few of us leafleting asylum seekers, staff, and passers by. The police pulled up, having been called out with a claim that 40 people were demonstrating – we asked them to send down the other 30 if they came across them.

Still as well as letting more people know about what goes on behind the doors of this anonymous building at Old Street, we managed to pass out information to many asylum seekers and to have some interesting conversations about their experiences.
