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
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
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
