Radical History: Resistance in the UK's Detention Centres

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.

Solidarity Demo with Migrants in Calais

... outside the French Tourist Board,
300 High Holborn, London - this Friday Nov 14th 1-2pm

In the last few weeks there has been an increasingly brutal repression of migrants in Calais and the surrounding areas.

On Wednesday 22nd October police and 250 armed riot squad officers smashed a camp that was home to 350 Eritreans. There were hundreds of arrests and around 80 of the migrants were imprisoned in a detention centre. Then on Thursday 6th November police conducted a manhunt of Afghans in the area. Journalists and activists on the scene were encircled by police for a number of hours to prevent them from documenting what was happening, and intervening. During a solidarity demo the following evening a prominent local activist was arrested.
