Raid – Interrupted

Last Friday we received our tip-off from Tripitaka who is an immigration officer involved on raids of “illegal immigrants”. The plan was we would receive the tip-off and then inform people that they are about to be picked up by the immigration police. We had a really short amount of time to inform people  that they were an immigration raid target.We also wanted to provide families about to be detained (ready for deportation) an alternative.

So we fixed up three squats in anticipation of the raid.We wanted to prioritise families with kids. The disruption of these raids on children and communities was something that we could try and minimise for the families themselves. To provide a safe location where they can get their life back together. So here is the action we undertook which in the end was successful. Hope you will read the tweets of the action.

Tweet 10 Immigrant X Tripitaka has agreed to give us raid targets of immigration police (fence fuzz). She gets the raid targets at the beginning of her shift.
Tweet 11 Immigrant X Today will be the first time we have used her tips for raid targets. Previously we have used tip off on stop and searches.
Tweet 12 Immigrant X Usually there are between 15 raid targets a day by 3 or 4 teams of immigration officers. The zones in London to target were set yesterday.
Tweet 13 Immigrant X We will concentrate on one team’s targets since they will be in one close geographical area.
Tweet 14 Immigrant X Once we get the list we will have very short time to make it to the first house.
Tweet 15 Immigrant X We expect to have less than 30 minutes to inform the first tagerted illegal immigrants of their arrest and evacuate the to a safe location.
Tweet 16 Immigrant X In the 2-3 hours these raids take place we might be able to rescue at least 3 families and some other singles and couples from deportation.
Tweet 17 Immigrant X We have to make a choice of who to warn. These will not be comfortable decisions to make.
Tweet 18 Immigrant X @Immigrant_Z is in charge of target selection as she has the best spatial knowledge of the city having worked as a bicycle courrier.
Tweet 19 Immigrant X This is our first operation of this kind and we are a bit nervous. We have to cover territory quickly and know when to back off.

Tweet 21 Immigrant X @Immigrant_Z has the van and will evacuate our immigrants to a safe house as well pick up as well as take one or two rescues.
Tweet 22 Immigrant X @ImmigrantY and I will make a rescue and move the immigrants to close safe location from their house.
Tweet 23 Immigrant X Then @Immigrant_Z will arrive later on with the van to relocate them to a squats we prepared last week.
