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.

Property Developers Awards Gets Shut Down as cockroaches and manure left outside

The demo against the Property Developer Awards – suported by Sexual Avengers, A.N.A.L, S.H.A, Class War and various others – took place yesterday (April 4th). Developers had paid £400 a head and up to £10,000 a table to attend the Awards, a gross meet-up for London’s top gentrifiers. 

Several pigs vans and a few pigs soon arrived to protect the property developers, who cowered behind them as they entered. The front entranced was successfully closed for a number of hours.

Flyers handed out read:

The Housing Crisis is killing queer people!
We demand Social Housing built for need not greed!

We demand Queer-Specific Homeless Services and an end to inner-city luxury developments!
We demand the scrapping Help to Buy and Right to Buy!
We demand a Rent Cap!
We also demand you stop this celebration, held on the dead and dying bodies of our brothers and sisters and non-binary allies!

Because but not exclusive to:
1/4 of the UK’s Homeless Children are LGBTQ!
1/5 of Trans People have been denied housing because of their identity!
1/4 of Trans Homeless People have been sexually assaulted in a shelter!
1/4 of Queer People have suffered from domestic abuse!

This is just a start as we fight to stop Gentrafication and those set out to profit from the poor and homeless.

London in the midst of a housing crisis. Since 2010 the number of people rough sleeping across England has more than doubled, jumping by 16% between the years of 2015 and 2016 alone. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg: over 275,000 people approach local authorities in 2016 for homelessness assistance. Rents are soaring; housing being built is unaffordable to all aside from the richest few; stability and security are nowhere to be found.

Much worse is to come and another protest in Camden .

SHUT DOWN THE PROPERTY DEVELOPERS AWARDS 2017

http://www.facebook.com/events/111278219367877

Tuesday the 4th of April
Grosvenors House
86 – 90 Park Lane
at 6.00pm

This year the awards are sponsored by multi-national property parasites Savills and costs £400 a ticket.

Once again the profiteers of gentrification will be back at the 5 star luxury Grosvenor Hotel on Park Lane.
London is en route to becoming a playground for the rich elite – a process expedited by property developers in collusion with government and corrupt local authorities – ‘regeneration’ is the buzz-word.

Assessing every possible opportunity for expensive, luxury flats to be built, property developers are buying up social and private housing and commercial spaces to ensure maximum profit at whatever cost. The social cost of this process is that poor, disadvantaged and vulnerable people/groups are being evicted, made homeless and are relocated.
These parasites care only for the profits and London’s attraction to the global financial elite is leading them to convert living spaces, social amenities and community assets into soulless investment opportunities which serve none but a tiny, privileged minority.
They are contributing to rising rents and a shortage of social housing, to the closure of libraries and social centres, the demolition of pubs and clubs. They are complicit in a process of social cleansing, by which London is becoming off-limits to the families and communities that have lived here for generations, and built its reputation as the UK’s diverse and vibrant capital.

WE CANNOT ALLOW THEM TO CONGRATULATE THEMSELVES WITHOUT SHOWING OUR OPPOSITION.
TIME TO CRASH THE PARTY
!

Poor Show By Far Right Groups in London (April 1st)

April the 1st (an appropriate date for them to hold a march), In light if recent events in London, various right wing groups have tried to capitalise on it and called there own march right away calling it “March Against Terrorism”.
Originally called by Britain First it said over 700 going and nearly 2k interested but this was far from what we saw on the streets with no less than 200 showing up with more flags than people they were met and was far outnumbered by various antifasists groups.

Thanks to all the squatters, homless and travellers that managed to come down on the day, managed not to get kettled, intimadated and were on the streets till late that night also the NFA-AF members who made sure they got home “safely”.
