#JusticeForGrenfell Squat Fundraiser [ #NoJusticeNoSleep ]

After the Grenfell Tower atrocity, in which hundreds lost their lives, squatters held a benefit party to help those affected. The atrocity occurred after cost-cutting Kensington and Chelsea council clad the building in a cheap, flammable material in an effort to make the block look more appealing to its rich and super-rich neighbours.

Held near London Bridge in an old student hospital, two rooms out of the hundreds laying empty were packed with people enjoying the music and sounds – from ska, punk and techno to spoken word, rap and grime. The live performances were equally diverse: FRANK, The Harriman Twins, Marlaboo and The Lodgers joined artists from the Grenfell area, including Crazy Haze, Apex Zero and Le Hornet.

The night was a great success with over £560 being made. It shows that squatters can get organised quickly, take an empty building and organize events and benefits they know are important. Moreover, it shows that working-class solidarity between squatters and tenants is not only alive and kicking, but kicking middle-class charity where it hurts.

All the money will be taken to Grenfell and given directly to the local community centre and migrant centre, which has just opened up for people living around the Tower who can’t go to hospital, police or local charities for fear that they will arrest and/or deport them.

With more events in this space being organised, we will be sure to let you know when it is happening via our Twitter.

STOP EDL 24th JUNE 2017, AT PARLIAMENT SQUARE

Lets stand together because once again the EDL are trying to take advantage of the recent terror attacks in the UK. Trying gain members and any support they can by having a march as close to the 1 year anniversary of Lee Rigby. They changed he date from the 17th June to 24th June, because I guess they couldn’t do maths and realised the 24th was closer to the actual death of Lee Rigby, which was the 22nd July.

The event has yet to post a time and route, but watch this space, it will be updated when released.

Remember it’s Central London so be careful for Spotters (fash that take your pictures and relay info back to there march), Police and CCTV. Always remember the basics and wear a mask/face covering at all times and always stay with a group you know.
More info: Green and Black Cross / Netpol

Lets do to them what happened to Britain first a few months ago when they attempted to march in London and SMASH THE FASH.

Call GBC if arrested and any squatters, homeless or travellers or people without an address get arrested a number will be released on the day on our twitter ( @NFA_Antifascists ) and FB (/NoFixedAbodeAntiFascist) and a phone number will provided for people to use and a ‘care of’ address can be used.

Opposing the EDL in Liverpool 3rd June and Britain First in Brimingham Cancelled

Stop the EDL in Liverpool – 3rd June

Once again the EDL are attempting to come to Liverpool, trying to divide the local community and recruit people to their fascist views.
Last time they attempted such a demonstration was in 2016 as part of the White Man March, when they were met by antifascists and locals who stopped all ten of them in the baggage department in the train station before they even made it to their meeting point. Kettled by police, the racists were escorted away, but not before some “active” opposition.

The racists were stopped before and will be again!

Britain First in Birmingham Cancelled

Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen – the so-called leaders of the far-right group Britain First – have said they are “postponing” their demonstration in Birmingham, which was due to be held on the same day as the EDL rally. Last week they both were arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred and were given strict bail conditions preventing them from being and organising in Birmingham and intimidating Mosque goers.
The ex-leader of the EDL, Tommy Robinson, has been seen in the company of Britain First, so we expect people who support Britain First to join the EDL march in Liverpool instead. Watch out!

ANTIFASCIST BENEFIT GiG

Yesterday a solidarity benefit gig was held in north London to raise money for a recently imprisoned antifascist, arrested for fighting Nazis in Dover, and six anarchists in Turin, Italy on pre-trial detention (remand). It was a great success with over £800 being raised.

The night was a hip-hop night, with poets, freestyles, open-mic and live performances. The night started at a decent pace with small crowds turning-up to check out the space and hear the first performer, spoken-word artist Becky Fury. After her performance, political hip-hop artist Awate performed his latest single, Out Here, stirring up the crowd and getting them in the mood for some more hip-hop! People got up, started dancing and soon George F. ‘The Squat Poet’, Omeza, Apex Zero and others was spitting bars and free-styling as the DJ who provided some classic hip-hop – with locals, squatters, antifascists and all-night ravers dancing together.

The space was provided by Camden Homeless Solidarity, which is based in 156 Kentish Town Road, and is open on weekdays to the local neighbourhood and homeless alike and serves food and drinks, as well as a welcoming space to teach others how to squat and to hand out basic resources for anyone who might need it.

Cyclists Surround Immigration Snatch Van

Today a group of people on bicycles encircled and tailed an immigration arrest van through the streets of central London as it was on its way to carry out a raid.

This was done to alert people to the existence of these vans and their daily incursions into our neighbourhoods. It was also done to disrupt the smooth running of immigration enforcement; a machine that rounds people up, detains them indefinitely, and expels them from the country to face unknown dangers.

Edit

These raids are the point at which the whole immigration regime is at its weakest. Remember that in order to carry out raids they must come into our neighbourhoods, drive down our streets, and try to force their way into businesses and homes. It is also critical to intervene in these moments before someone is handcuffed and in the back of a van. Its also easier to stop a raid which would result in another immigration prisoner than it is to support the same person in detention or fight for their release through the courts.

Immigration officers will not carry out a raid when they know that people are following them. Previous cases have shown that even one person filming and confronting them is at times sufficient to make them give up and leave. They remember and fear a repeat of when they have been stopped by people in the communities they’ve invaded and needed rescuing from by the police.

This action is easy for many people to do. The vans are active around London at all times of day. If you see a snatch van, follow it, film the officers when they get out and show them and the people they are targeting that you won’t just let it happen in your community. You do not need to be many, and you’d be surprised at the number of friends you’ll make when people see immigration enforcement being resisted in the area.

Incidentally, showing how ubiquitous these raids are, another group reportedly confronted two Immigration Enforcement vans that they happened to spot driving down the streets in Whitechapel later the same afternoon. The officers responded aggressively, but this only attracted more attention to their presence and more support from local people for the group challenging the officers.

Direct action can stop these raids!

[Note that these vans, as well as the scumbags riding in them, are increasingly equipped with cameras]

No Borders No Masters, Stop Deportations

Operation Nexus, an initiative between the police and the Home office to deport foreign nationals( EU and Non EU) who’ve committed a serious offence, is increasingly being used to deport people for petty crimes and even for rough sleeping.

This is just another way that the State brings the border and its racist logics into our everyday life’s ! The true criminals are the ones who maintain the racist and murderous border regime !

No Borders !

Noise Demo this Friday against Operation Nexus and deportations.
