The front banner of the demo, behind which there was, amongst others ...
Over 500 people marched in London today as part of the Transnational Day of Action Against Migration Controls. The march was loud, colourful and had a festive atmosphere.

Oct 7 Brussels: Reclaim the Streets celebrates migrants day of action

07-10-2006 16:11

In Brussels, the Oct 7 action day for migrants rights was celebrated by several demos, one of them a Reclaim the Streets party, another one by sans papiers from Congo - Congolese against Borders.

The party people stated in their call: In a world where everything needs to be authorised, where public space is privatised and controlled, where nothing can happen anymore... let's take our instruments, our disguises, our knowledge of partying, good food and the granny (if she is nice)... and let-s take back the street for a wild and spontaneous party.

Here is a quick report from that party.
