Anti-anarchist raids in London and Brighton (UK)

Breaking news, more updates as we receive them:

Metropolitan police have raided several squatted autonomous centres in London, in a media-spectacle in which the pigs promise more raids. The raids are apparently in connection with the 26 March TUC demo / Black Bloc and the pathetic Royal wedding this weekend which has been hyped up.

The Ratstar squat in South London was amongst those raided, as were 2 nearby squats. Also Offmarket squat in Hackney and Grow Heathrow squat were raided. Current reports are that 14 people are arrested so far. No one has been charged yet. The arrested are being held at Harrow Road Policestation.

On Wednesday March 27 police officers from the Metropolitan and Sussex police forces raided squats in Brighton and arrested seven people. This was also allegedly connected with the TUC demo / Black Bloc.
