Over 200 demonstrators descended on offices in Cardiff last Friday (27th) in the largest protest to date directed at the UK Border Agency. Consisting mainly of refugees, the demo lasted three hours and saw speeches, chanting and dancing.
Organised by Refugee Voice Wales, there was a strong presence from Zimbabwean, Congolese and Kurdish community groups - plus a range of anarcho and left groups including No Borders, South Wales Anarchists, the Wales Green Party, the Socialist Party and others.
Meanwhile the Yarl’s Wood hunger strike continues. On Wednesday activists gathered to protest against the continuing incarceration of five of the hunger strikers in Holloway.
