Graff against Border Agency after East Street raid (UK)

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Also: “This is how we do it”: Neighbourhood Solidarity after East Street raid.

In the wake of the militant resistance to the immigration raid on East Street London on the 21st, this message above was painted …

As one of the East Street Two remains caged at Gatwick Detention Centre we sprayed our message of vengeance at the offices of the United Kingdom Border Agency.

To explain the organised misery of their oppression the agents of this racist state need scapegoats to blame. We dismiss their petty attempts to divide us and will continue to fight together as we did on Sunday until all borders are destroyed, their fences and prisons torn down.
With paint, fists and crowbars we will destroy the rotten infrastructure and poisonous ideology of this racist system. Let this message be a warning – every deportation must be met with furious resistance.

Fuck UKBA- Vegeance on all authority – until every deportation is stopped.

After call-outs went out through the local grapevine and also on social media, people from the area including the next door Aylesbury Estate rushed down to the scene. The Home Office snatch van was blockaded and penned in on a side street off the market. The bullies retreated inside the van with their prisoner while it was surrounded by people’s bodies and by makeshift barricades, the tires were let down, and it was pelted with rotten fruit and eggs from the market.
