London: Anti-Raids Network in supprt of Migrants

London, England

From Anti-Raids Network :

We are a new London-wide network of ordinary people resisting and challenging immigration checks and raids through principles of solidarity and mutual aid. This page provides background to the network. For our statement of principles, see here.

The constant use of street-based immigration checks on suspected foreigners; of brutal dawn raids on the homes of asylum seeker families; and of UK Border Agency purges of takeaways, factories and car washes staffed with a multi-ethnic workforce: all serve to spread the fear that keeps undocumented people underground. If the person is especially unlucky, camera crews might accompany the officers for exclusive shots of a ‘phoney’ groom being led away in handcuffs –  a moneymaker for the likes of UK Border Force, a vote winner for every major political party in search of scapegoats for their problems and their unpopularity.
