LONDON, United Kingdom – Raheem Kassam reports: A throng of nearly 200 pro-migrant rioters descended on London’s St. Pancras mainline station tonight – the terminal that connects the UK’s capital city with Europe – to demand “no borders” and “no nations”. The scenes, brought to you exclusively by Breitbart London, shows violent clashes between police and protesters, with London’s cops looking woefully unprepared.
“At around 6pm a number of protesters arrived at St Pancras rail station and officers are currently facilitating a peaceful protest… Around this time a number of other individuals arrived at the station causing disorder, and missiles, including smoke bombs were thrown at police officers. This group were dispersed by police and officers remain at the station.”
Calais Migrant Solidarity, an umbrella group of hard-left protesters, descended on the station after attending an “Anarchist Book Fair” – seemingly undeterred by the hypocrisy of anarchist philosophy wanting less government intervention, while most of the protesters in attendance are familiar faces from left-wing marches demanding more government interference in the marketplace, and in civil society.
And what they experienced tonight was just that – government in action – as they came head to head with London’s police. But in this case, it seems they were successful, breaking through police lines, and hurling smoke bombs into one of the busiest railway stations in the country, endangering themselves, police, members of the public, and tourists with their demands to welcome unlimited numbers of “refugees” into Britain.
Police officers can be seen in the clip above forming a line outside the main entrance to the station, protecting members of the public and commuters from the group of masked and hooded individuals.
But the thin blue line soon broke, as smoke bombs were kicked towards the hapless police, and the horde rushed through the entrance.
Once inside, protesters were wrestled to the ground and turfed out, while others continued screaming in the faces of policemen and women, who are, as usual in Britain, unarmed. Read the rest of this entry »
So flagrant is Hungary’s apparent animosity for migrants that the U.N. said its leaders had declined to accept assistance from the agency that supports refugees.
LONDON — Dan Bilefsky, Palko Karasz and Anemona Hartocollis report: Haggard and defiant, hundreds of migrants stormed out of the Keleti train station in Budapest on Friday and set off on foot towards Germany, choosing a 300-mile walk over spending another night in a country where they are not welcome.
“This is going to go down in history,” said Rami Hassoun, an Egyptian migrant from Alexandria helping to corral the crowds on a six-lane highway to Austria, where the migrants were accompanied by a police patrol.
Elsewhere, hundreds of migrants remained locked in a standoff with the police at the Bicske station outside Budapest, demanding that train service to the west be restored, so they could continue their journeys to more prosperous European countries, like Germany or Sweden.
Hundreds of others stormed out of a reception camp in the country’s south, highlighting their desperation to flee.
The chaos in Hungary reflected the inadequacy of an asylum policy across the 28-member European Union bloc that has forced migrants to register or apply for asylum in the country where they arrive — though in many cases that becomes the country where they are discovered or detained by authorities.
Once they register and apply, they must remain in that country — even if that country, like Hungary, is so hostile to migrants that it is building a 110-mile fence on its border with Serbia to keep them away. Read the rest of this entry »
