El disabte 21 d´abril un centenar de persones, organitzat per la red no border, protesten contra el projecte de fer a Gatwick (on hi ha un dels aeroports de Londres)un nou centre d´internament per a inmigrants.

Over 2,600 people, mostly asylum seekers, are locked up in detention camps
and prisons in Britain, without trial and without time limit and with no
automatic right to bail.

The government is building new detention centres with a target capacity of
4000.

One of these is about to be built inside the Gatwick airport area. They
are starting building works in the coming months and planning to finish it
by 2008.

Detention centres are a crucial part of the European Union?s migration
policy:

They are a vital link in the process of controlling and managing migration
movements- according to media propaganda this is essential due to the
?masses? of migrants ?swamping? the country.
They are used as a way to filter migrants according to the needs of the
European labour market.
They are a tool of social control: promoting fear by presenting migrants
as people who need to be locked up.


Detention centres are institutions which resemble a closed prison
regarding its conditions, and where migrants can be locked up due to their
nationality and status. Detention can be enforced for many reasons, but in
general it is not based on any crime but e.g. in order to unravel one's
identity or entering route, or as a way of controlling someone who is due
to be deported. Because the detention will mostly be applied on these
asylum seekers, it is also in contradiction with the clause 31 of the
Geneva refugee agreement, the clause that forbids the punishment of
refugees solely on the basis of illegal entering to the country.


Current immigration detention facilities such as Campsfield in
Oxfordshire, Yarl's Wood in Bedfordshire and Harmondsworth in London where
fires and riots have broken out, are notorious for their inhumane regimes.
Detainees encounter routine racism and an indefinite period of detention
whilst living in prison like conditions. Unlike prisoners they do not know
when they will ?get out? and also face the fear of being forcibly returned
to former countries where they might face torture and death.


In September Bail for Immigration Detainees (BID) and Asylum Aid published
a report They Took Me Away on detention of women, focusing on violent
treatment during deportations, length of detention, and failure to meet
specific needs of women. Children continued to be detained at Dungavel and
Oakington and at Yarl's Wood a 250-plus "family unit" was due to open
around the end of the year.

Seven out of 10 principal immigration detention centres in the UK are run
by private companies for profit under contract to the Home Office
(Interior Ministry).

THIS IS A CALL TO ACTION TO STOP THE NEW GATWICK DETENTION CENTRE BEING
BUILT.

WE DEMAND AN END TO THE PRACTICE THAT IMPRISONS PEOPLE DUE TO THEIR
IMMIGRATION STATUS

WE DEMAND THE BUILDING OF THE NEW DETENTION CENTRE AT GATWICK IS
IMMEDIATELY CANCELLED.



NO TO ALL DETENTION CENTRES NO DEPORTATIONS

Aqui a Londres la opolicia utilitza aquesta tactica de filmar constantment als groups que consideren 'perillosos'. Ara NoBorders resulta que s'ha convertit en el group preferit dels 'Forward Intellicence Teams', un cos especial de policia metropolitana de Londres que es didica a filmar i fotografiar obsesivament a la gent, tal i com mostra la foto.

Les compas de Miles de Viviendas que ara son per aqui presentant la Universitat Pirata tambe van al.lucinar amb aquest tema durant la manifestacio cntra el centre d'internament. Es realment una pasada, encara que hi ha groups que estan treballant sobre aquest tema. Si mireu a aquesta pagina: http://www.labofii.net/esf2004/documentation/
al final hi ha una serie de fotos d'accions que s'han fet contra els escamots 'F.I.T' de la policia.

Per mes informacio (en angles) sobre la mani contra el Centre d'Iinternament del dissabte passat mireu:
