For two days running, no Immigration Service snatch squads have been able to leave the Scottish Enforcement Unit at Brand Street to carry out dawn raids. Today, gates at Brand Street were blockaded again from 5am til after dawn, in a repeat action which apparently caught police and security by surprise, allowing a massive chain to be attached to the gates. Report on yesterday's blockade: http://scotland.indymedia.org/newswire/display/2392/index.php These blockades are part of an escalating campaign of protest and direct action to resist migration controls and defend our communities. If you want to get involved in defending our communities and supporting refugees and migrants, there are many ways you can help. Not all of them involve confrontation or chains and padlocks. Some, though not all, involve early starts.

The venue is easily reached by the Underground or any bus via Paisley Road West.
