London, 24/10/2015. Today, "Calais Migrant Solidarity" and other activist organizations held a demonstration in support and solidarity with migrants outside the London Eurostar terminus at St Pancras Station. Heavy police presence in riot gears confronted and driven out the protesters from inside the station where smokes bombs were fired. The demonstration ended in front of the Harry Potter's "Platform 9 ¾" where British Transport and MET Police arrested some protesters under the Railway Byelaws, Section 6 "Unacceptable behavior" (http://bit.ly/1swkop0).

We are gathering for our friends and comrades and all those risking their lives and fighting every night and day against the border in Calais and across Fortress Europe. We are gathering as the repression steps up in Calais, with 460 new riot cops in town carrying out a wave of mass arrests, and a big eviction threatened in the "jungle". […]>>.<br />
