Brighton, UK: Banner in solidarity with Calais Jungle refugees

Submitted anonymously to Insurrection News:

we got up nice and early this morning to put up a banner expressing
solidarity and anger towards the situation in Calais where, on 17th October,
the french state have planned to begin a total eviction of the jungle. The
banner was attatched to the flagpoles in front of the war memorial in the
centre of the city, somewhere that people regularly go to visit to remind
themselves of their nationalist pride and identity that has been built on war,
genocide, displacement, criminalisation and conquerence of other people. We
want to show solidarity in this small way not just with the people in the
jungle but in all places where people are trying to get on with their lives in
the face of such incredible and brutal opposition – the peeps on strike/
resisting within prisons all over the place, everyone fighting some serious
battles against the dakota access pipeline, autonomous zones under attack, the
list is endless.

reduced mobility meant that the banner wasn’t up very high so unfortunately it
was taken down within a few hours, but we hope that whoever did it enjoyed the
generous amounts of lube that we smothered the ropes with…
