Demo for social centre arrestees

 April 28, 2011 12:36

DEMO IS FRIDAY  29/4  NOT TODAY

12 Midday outside Edgware Road Police Station, 4 Harrow Road W2

Demonstration against Met Police’s shitty behaviour, in solidarity with all those arrested in social centres this morning, Brighton yesterday and all M26 arrestees.

12 Midday outside Edgware Road Police Station, 4 Harrow Road W2

Demonstration against Met Police’s shitty behaviour, in solidarity with all those arrested in social centres this morning, Brighton yesterday and all M26 arrestees.

Officers from the notorious TSG raided the Ratstar in Camberwell, Offmarket in Hackney and the Grow Heathrow project this morning in an obvious case of not having a fucking clue. After being given the runaround at the demonstration on March 26th and basically only arresting people peacefully occupying Fortnum & Mason the police are acting like the big babies they are and raiding activist hubs in the vain hope that they might find someone somewhere who maybe might know something about a demonstration. The senior officer at Ratstar has admitted the raid was connected to the Royal Wedding, the cops have been trying to fabricate rumours of anarchist mobs disrupting the wedding in a plot so secret that no anarchists are even aware of it’s existence.

They got egg on their face on M26 and are now having a tantrum about being shown up so are targeting social centres in a childish manner, innocent people have been arrested just so they can justify these poorly executed raids.

We will not stand for these blatant attacks on our social spaces and are calling for a demonstration in solidarity with all those arrested and against political policing.

Bring soundsystems, food, drink, banners, love, rage and solidarity.

Fuck the Royal Wedding – Fuck the Police

London Social Centres raided, arrests at Rat Star

At least two London Social Centres raided this morning – police have broken into the Ratstar and Offmarket autonomous spaces. There are about 8 arrests reported from the Rat Star in Camberwell.

At least two London Social Centres raided : If you can make it down to the Ratstar (298 Camberwell Road) near Camberwell Green or Offmarket (121 Lower Clapton Road, Clapton, Hackney) it would still be good to have a presence there.

There are about 8 arrests reported from the Rat Star in Camberwell.

Police raids community project in Sipson, Heathrow


In addition to the Social Centres in London, the police has raided Grow Heathrow community project this morning.

30 cops with riot shields raided the community garden project this morning under the claim to search for weapons.

Police raid squats/social centres in Brighton AND London

In the last few days Met Police have raided several squats and social centres in the Brighton & Hove and London areas. People have been arrested in what has been an operation linked to the recent Anti-Cuts March in London on 26th March. There is also the high possibility that these raids are to do with the Royal Wedding which happens tomorrow.

People in Bristol might do well to keep their wits about them as there is a possibility that Brighton and London aren’t the only targets in mind for the Met.

More information about the London raids this morning:

Grow Heathrow raided by 40 riot police

: April 28th, 2011 |

undefined

Grow Heathrow was one of 3 squats across London to be raided so far this morning. 40 Police in full riot gear turned up at 7.15 am this morning to raid the site.

In the same week as the Royal Wedding, the community market garden was raided and occupants were dragged out of their beds and searched. An hour and a half later they all left with nothing – all that was found was vegetables, chickens, bees and an enthusiasm to create a sustainable community in a world threatened by climate change.

The police tactics were completely disproportionate. If all they wanted was a tour round – they could have just taken off their uniforms and we would of given them a full tour. They might have even got a cup of tea.

Unfortunately they did not come round for a friendly visit. The raid was one of many acts of intimidation happening right now across London. This is a crackdown on people who are bored of the state and the police controlling our lives. First signs look like this was quite possibly an illegal raid which is a fundamental breach of democracy and our human rights in the UK.

More photos to follow this blog soon. We will not be intimidated. Stay safe everyone.

Six anarchists arrested ahead of royal wedding

Six protesters who police feared were planning to disrupt the royal wedding have been arrested by Scotland Yard as the officers begin their “pre-emptive strike” against potential anarchists.
The six were arrested in the past week in connection with alleged public order offences they are said to have committed at the TUC march last month.But officers moved to arrest them this week as they feared the group were planning further disruption at the royal wedding on Friday. The six have been issued with bail conditions stopping them from entering central London on the day of the wedding.It brings the total number of anarchists banned from London on the day of the wedding to 68. And Scotland Yard sources confirmed that further arrests are planned in the coming days as they move to minimise the potential of trouble for Prince William and Kate Middleton on the big day

Defend anarchists

When they say anarchists they just mean anyone protesting.That number of 68 is mostly people on bail from the TUC demo, the large amount of which is made of of the F+M UK Uncut group, who aren’t explicitly anarchists…

London Social Centres raided

April 28, 2011 09:40 

At least two London Social Centres raided – unclear of the legality of the raids at the moment – but illegal or not it’s clearly linked to almost certainly false stories about anarchists targeting the wedding tomorrow.

If you can make it down to the Ratstar (298 Camberwell Road) near Camberwell Green or Offmarket (121 Lower Clapton Road, Clapton, Hackney) it would still be good to have a presence there.

Also if you live nearer other spaces it might be good to stay around there in case of a raid.
