No Borders calls for noise demo against ‘Policing The Borders Conference’ 23rd March 2010

London No Borders have called for a noise demo outside the “Policing the Borders” conference at the Cavendish Conference Centre, 22 Duchess Mews, London W1G 9DT (nearest tube: Oxford Circus) on Tuesday 23rd March at 2.30pm.
Un-police the border! Freedom of movement for all!

This Tuesday representatives of the European Border Agency FRONTEX,
various UK police forces and the Identity and Passport Service are
gathering in central London for a conference under the title “Policing the

The conference, which claims to secure the border against “illegal
immigration” and terrorism, will also be attended by representatives of
many security companies and feature an exhibition about border security
and surveillance.

Together these companies and agencies create a Fortress Europe where every
year thousands of people in the desert, in the Mediterranean Sea and in
the Atlantic Ocean die try to enter. Furthermore their policies and
actions deny basic rights to millions of “undocumented migrants” within
Europe, and help to create
an atmosphere of suspicion where everyone is under surveillance for
unnamed “crimes”.

London No Borders is fundamentally opposed to a world in which people are
denied their freedom of movement because of the colour of their skin,
their bank balance, or their nationality.
