On Wednesday 27th May a group of No Borders activists braved the lousy weather to picket the Border Agency offices on 31-33 Newport Road. We distributed leaflets to those passing by and entering the building, which were well received. Despite the weather, the police deemed a presence necessary at this peaceful protest, as those who arrived were suprised to be awaited by two CSPO’s standing in the rain!
demo27thThe next picket of the UKBA at 31-33 Newport Road will be held on 17th June 2009, 12 noon. We will be distributing information about the dire situation for hundreds of migrants in the Calais region and the upcoming no border camp there on June 23-29th.

CosmoTracey CurtisAs part of the mobilisation for the camp we’ve held a number of info-nights including an infotainment night on 4th June where as well as screening a small selection of films including  the Calais camp call out, we had fantastic intimate musical performances from two of South Wales’ foremost political singer songwriters Cosmo and Tracey Curtis. Both played a selection of heartfelt and personal sets of social commentary and anarchy, we recommend you check out their music.

There are more events coming soon to promote the camp including a photo exhibition at Chapter Arts Centre and a benefit gig in Newport on Tuesday. All welcome, if your interested in what we’re about, why not check out our events.
