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”.

Tommy Robinson Vs JayKae (Twitter Wars)

The English Defence League’s co-founder and former leader Tommy Robinson has found himself trading tweets with Birmingham based grime artist Jaykae.

It all started when Jaykae sent out this tweet:

…which lead to Tommy Robsinson tweeting this video:

..to which Jaykae replied:

Which led to Jaykae posting a whatsapp message and Tommy Robinson s number (which has now changed).

Jaykae suggested the idea of the two getting in the ring for charity – which isn’t the worst idea if they want to settle their difference, but can you see it actually happening?

White Pride Marchers Humiliated in Edinburgh (With Video)

The Scottish far-right suffered their biggest defeat on the streets in seven years in Edinburgh yesterday afternoon, as anti-fascists continually impeded their movements and refused to obey police instructions. This culminated in dramatic scenes as the 30 or so ‘White Pride’ marchers were forced into a humiliating climb down – quite literally – as police held them within the Scotsman steps while waiting for reinforements to arrive at the ground floor and clear their exit. As horses charged anti-fascists on North Bridge, other groups on Market Street began pelting the Nazis with eggs, as they cowered behind police within the Edwardian walkway.

Having attended and reported on dozens of far-right demonstrations since the first emergence of the Scottish Defence League in 2009, they can often be depressing affairs, following a predictable script where the authorities facilitate a penned in shouting match between the two sides, before allowing the fascists to disperse of their own accord into nearby pubs. Previously the SDL showed up in Alloa two weeks ago, while it’s important for anti-fascists to show up on these occasions, it is a strategy that clearly has its limits in its failure to prevent the fascists from organising.

Saturday’s demonstration in Edinburgh marked an important change in tactics from anti-fascists. Things started rather differently, however. Early on, a Unite Against Fascism demo gathered outside Waverley Station, where it was mooted that the White Pride demo would also be assembling. However, having heard from the great and good of Edinburgh politics (MPs Ian Murray and Tommy Sheppard), it then proceeded up to the Royal Mile. Other autonomous groups were already gathered there, and intentionally remained outside of the carefully positioned barriers and fencing.

The police had other ideas, and quickly moved in, taking most protestors unaware.

Smoke flares were set off and a minor scuffle ensued as some tried to break the police lines, but this was quickly subdued. The inane chanting of the SWP quickly took over as the “singing kettle” reverted to type. With no sign of the fascists yet – or even any idea when, where or if they were going to emerge – an opportunity presented itself for anti-fascists who did not want to stand behind police lines all day to regroup, sneaking out from behind the kettle.

This was a turning point – not just for yesterday’s victory, but for overall anti-fascist strategy in Scotland, after years of tepid demonstrations behind cop lines. The police were not prepared for this scenario. Some cat and mouse runarounds on the Royal Mile, as the police tried to re-kettle anti-fascists, would end up with them simply giving up – they did not have the resources to have officers penning in small, dispersed groups of anti-fascists. This did come at a cost: a small number of anti-fascists were arrested.

But it meant that when the ‘white pride’ demonstrators did finally appear close to 2pm, anti-fascists could surround them on all sides. As a result, their movements were far mor tightly controlled by the police than would usually be the case. Two Nazis were arrested – it is believed that this was for doing straight armed salutes.

When time was up for the Nazis, the police faced an enormous challenge in how to get rid of them. Dozens of officers were drafted in, forming a tight kettle around the 30 or so fascists. They were marched from Hunter Square on to the Royal Mile, and then on to North Bridge. Anti-fascists ran down the street, taunting them as they went, as police horses were brought in to try and maintain control.

Funnelling the fash into the Scotsman Steps, which span four storeys between Market St and North Bridge, the police found themselves with nowhere to take them. Another group of anti-fascists had assembled at the foot of the steps, pelting the Nazis with eggs as they were marched down the Lord of the Rings-eqsue tower.

From there, the police began threatening anyone with arrest if they followed the fash kettle along Market Street. Eventually, they were dispersed in small groups into Waverley Station and taken out of the city.

The challenge for anti-fascists is now to ensure that the networks which successfully confronted the white pride demo yesterday are consolidated and built upon. The tactics of UAF – which put the notion of outnumbering the fascists above all else – have, over many years, made only a minor impact on the ability of fascists to organise on our streets. What was shown in Edinburgh on Saturday was that even small numbers operating autonomously can be far more effective. We need to learn the lessons of the Battle of Scotsman Steps.
