Riot police intervene to break the hunger strike

Around 6.30 this morning that 'riot' police were at Harmondsworth and detainees were being taken away from the centre in vans.

Around 30 detainees have been taken out the centre and to unknown destination, according to the news we got.

From previos experience this looks like a typical reply from the authorities to break up the protest by moving detainees to other detention centes around the country and putting people in isolation.

Many thanks to indymedia, the only independent media in the UK. The lack of response from the mainstream media around the detainees' protest has been shameful.
