A report has emerged on Indymedia this evening that an FAI group attacked a Barnardo’s charity shop in Brixton because of its involvement in the continued detention of children. The individuals said in their statement, “This action was in solidarity with all migrants detained, deported and struggling to cross borders”.
Why target Barnardo’s?
Barnardo’s slogan is ‘we believe in children’. So why is the charity helping lock them up by getting involved in Cedars family immigration prison?
Cedars is a family immigration prison where Barnardo's provides child welfare services, thereby legitimising the continued detention of children.
