Migration, borders, and the slogan "no one is illegal" have become much more prominent in the UK over the last year. Noborder groups in many cities are becoming more active. One group has written a no one is illegal manifesto ( The april 2nd mobilisation was a big success in the UK. Anti detention center groups (umbrella:, direct action groups, comitees to defend asylum seekers and some of the migrant self organisations (for example iranian refugees, the voice uk) demonstrated together on the day (report).

The action day was endorsed by the European Social Forum in London 2004. The aggressive anti-asylum seeker campaigns of the labour government and even more the Tories (the right wing opposition) was picked up by the mass media. In GB there is no big kick-ass campaign like the deportation class campaign but many small initiatives and individual campaigns, and they seem to start working together. In June 2005, there is a no one is illegal conference (see report) in Manchester, you are all invited to come.
