No Borders South Wales recently held a protest outside the Newport passport office to raise awareness about the fact that ID cards come into effect for non-EU students and spouses from 25th November.

ID cards will be issued to non-EU students and spouses from regional offices in Birmingham, Cardiff, Croydon, Glasgow, Liverpool, and Sheffield from Tuesday 25th November.

No Borders South Wales will be holding a protest outside the office in Cardiff on the launch day. We call for protests outside each of the other offices on the same day.

We encourage all opponents of ID cards to join us, or plan their own protests, you can download a leaflet to photocopy and distribute here:
