Peckham welcomes march against deportations

Peckham, London. Sat 21 Mar 2017


 Movement for Justice and other protesters met in front of Peckham Library

 

 Antonia Bright of MfJ introduces the protest, and there is some chanting while we wait for late arrivals

 The protesters move to the front of the square to be visible from the road

 

 and there are more speeches and chanting

 

 before the protest moves off and across the road into Rye Lane

 where they move onto the road, blocking it. A police car brakes noising, then turns around

 and speeds away - the wrong way down this one-way section of the street

 

 The protesters walk past buses going up the street

 and make a lot of noise to let everyone in the shops know they are there

 

 as they walk along the street they hand out hundreds of leaflets - and almost everyon

 seems keen to take them - and many stand and read them and show support

 'Stop mass deportation, Stop the charter flights, Treat people as individuals and as human beings

 we are NOT animals, We WILL resist!'

 'Mass Deportation charter flights are RACIST and INHUMAN'

 

 Whistles and pans make a lot of noise, attracting everyone's attention

 

 At the end of the lane people stop briefly before taking a decision to go back up Rye Lane

 

Jewdas were one of a number of groups supporting the protest
