Kick the Nazis out of George Square!
So called “Last Line Resistence” & “Scotland First”, white supremacist keyboard warriors and the remaining dregs of Scottish Dawn (or was it National Action?), have decided it’s a good idea to take on Glasgow on fireworks night. This time the target of their crap graphics and hashtags is the anti-fascist movement and the left generally. They’ve even followed other far right groups’ attempts to try copying the images and style of anti-fascists and anarchists whilst trying to build a movement for a whites only Scotland. Their homophobia, transphobia, anti-Semitism, racism and anti-Working Class hatred has to be forced from the streets. We will not concede an inch to these scum, and we are not the least bit concerned to be targeted by the fash. Keeping them coming after us instead of picking on other communities is exactly what we want . We will join antifacsists from across Scotland and beyond to confront them on the 5th on November. Join us and local antifascist groups to kick them off our streets!

7. Surround Dungavel – End Detention
Dungavel House Immigration Removal Centre, ML10 6 Strathaven
Surround Dungavel – End Detention
WE DEMAND AN END TO DETENTION! NO MORE DEATHS! WE DEMAND ANSWERS AND JUSTICE FOR THE DEATH IN DUNGAVEL! Brick by brick, wall by wall, detention centres have to fall In September, an unnamed Chinese National was found dead in Dungavel. Yet we have been given no reason, no information. We need a full invesitgation. WE NEED ANSWERS! Locking people up due to their immigration status is racist, there is no way to operate a humane or safe detention system. Lets protest to shut down detention centres and end the inherently abusive and violent system of immigration detention that criminalises, detains, and imprisons people simply because they have chosen or been forced to migrate. The demonstration will take place outside Dungavel detention centre, in direct solidarity with the people who are currently detained. In solidarity with their protests against imprisonment and deportation, such as hunger strikes and resistance to forced removals. To make it clear that people on the outside want to come together in fighting against detention and deportation. This year has seen four deaths in immigration.This is a crucial time to send a message that Scotland does not want detention in any form, that no person is illegal. Surround Dungavel will be happening at the same time as Surround Yarl’s Wood, to show the Home Office that from Scotland to Bedford, Portsmouth to Gatwick. Their walls will fall. We are arranging coaches and we will release tickets closer to the date, but spaces are limited, so please if you can make your own way there do! Spaces for people who have experience of the immigration system will be FREE, to enable this to happen please support here https://www.chuffed.org/project/surround-dungavel
We hold in our hearts those who are now or have been detained. YOU. ARE NOT. ALONE! END DETENTION NOW. We aren’t calling for a limit, we are saying “SHUT THEM DOWN”
