Direct action against Campsfield detention centre’s private operator

How many activists does it take to shut down the UK head offices of a multinational corporation? On 30th November it was done with just four, when activists visited the national head offices of GEO, the company which manages Campsfield detention centre in Oxfordshire.

Despite the poor publicity (the demo was not announced on any websites) the company had clearly heard that a noise demo was planned outside their Reading offices. The company had hired private security who informed protesters that GEO?s workers had been told not to come in for the day. Only the boss was in. Result! The campaign against GEO is only in its early stages, and they can now look forward to a large noise demo planned for February!
