12-hour riot after detainee dies at Morton Hall Immigration Removal Centre (UK)

From ABC Hurricane:

A brief spark of revolt was seen from those incarcerated in Morton Hall Immigration Removal Centre near Lincoln after a Bengali man, who had been in the prison only three days, died on September 5.

Disorder broke out at breakfast on September 6 and staff were forced to flee, withdrawing to a “place of safety”.

A ‘Tornado’ team, or ‘national tactical response group’, was called into the prison to quell the riot, which lasted all day.

Solidarity with prisoners in struggle everywhere!

NB: There have been many riots in UK immigration centres over the last 18 months, and the mainstream media are keeping the incidents from being widely known, whilst spreading intolerable racism against migrants and stirring up hateful nationalism. Business as usual…
