Londoners Demonstrate for Freedom of Movement and the Right to Stay

03-04-2005 11:59

Following the European call for action on April 2nd, a wide coalition of anti-racist groups joined up for a local demo from Clarkenwell to Haggerston Park. About 1000 people marched through Hackney in bright sunlight, led by the Rhythms of Resistance Samba band, greeted by locals and swapping agitprop.
A letter was delivered to Communication House, one of the immigration holding prisons, where people must report regularly and are often detained for immediate deportation completely unprepared.

The demo in London was part of the first UK-wide, decentralised, but synchronised action day for a radical and uncompromising "no" to immigration controls: People in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Nottingham, Oxford and Canterbury were out in the streets simultaneously and made clear that they don't think what the Tories think. For the first time, people with very different political cultures had mobilised together: the national coalition of anti-deportation campaigns and the campaigns against detention centers along with committees to defend asylum seekers, direct action groups, trade unions, political and community migrant groups, noborder activists.

In Europe, demos and actions were announced in 41 cities and 11 countries. Check the audio reports for background interviews.
