Cardiff: Timeline of anti-deportation resistance in support of the Saleh family (UK)

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Update : Contrary to what the article states, and popular presumption, the family were in fact deported on the 8am flight. The son was beaten up twice on the flight to try to subdue his defiance. The daughter, Shroukie, is left in the UK separated from her family. Solidarity with the Saleh family and all migrants who fight for their dignity and freedom. No Borders – No Nations – Stop Deportations!

The Saleh family, Mr S and her two children, arrived in the UK in November 2007 after suffering 15 years of violence in Egypt. The whole family is now under serious threat of honour-based violence and possibly even death. They had a court hearing on 13th November to receive a fair hearing of their case, but this was completely ignored by UKBA.

The first attempt to deport the family was on the morning Thursday 18th October, which resulted in the family’s home being raided by UKBA officers in Cardiff and two activists being arrested for ‘obstructing UKBA officers’, one of which additionally charged with ‘obstruct pc’. While a call-out was made for supporters to attend Cardiff Bay police station, where the family were taken in order to be transfered to a coach for a flight later that day in London, others made their way to the motorway sliproad. What followed was an attempt to run down activists blockading the road. (more…)

UK Border Agency offices in Derby D-Locked (UK)

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

2 June 2010

“The UK Border Agency offices in Derby were d-locked last night. And a written message was left.

This action was carried out in solidarity with the European wide week of actions against the deportation machine,

We believe that acts of resistance -both large and small- against those who profit from and those who facilitate the deportation machine should be carried out whenever and wherever possible.

Fuck the Deportation Machine
