sTEP UP SOLIDARITY FOR INSPIRING #STANSTEAD15 HEROES

Mon, 12/17/2018 - 04:18

Last Monday the #Stansted15 were found guilty of a terror-related offence after they peacefully prevented a secretive deportation flight from leaving last March.

These activists are an incredible inspiration to millions of people who are enraged and horrified at the injustice of how refugees are forced to suffer at the hands of Fortress Europe and the British government’s ‘hostile environment’ that regularly sees parents stripped from their children, lives put in extreme danger as deportation flights take off to deport people, and the horror of life for those in detention centres. 

A petition in support of the 15 now has over 50,000 signatures – sign now to demand justice and an end to the Hostile Environment. … Read the rest

The new alliance of Tommy Robinson (real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon) and UKIP leader Gerrard Batten were humiliated on London’s streets today as they attempted to capitalise on the government’s Brexit crisis. 

Around 15,000 people turned out on a march beginning at Portland Place and marching to Whitehall where far-right groups assembled for what they claimed was a “Brexit betrayal” march, but anti-racists view as an attempt to grow a violent far-right street movement targeting Muslims and migrants. … Read the rest
