UK: Pro-refugee demo paralyses London's St. Pancras station

United Kingdom, London
October 16, 2015 at 19:47 GMT +00:00 · Published

About 500 pro-refugee activists protested in London's St. Pancras station as they blocked the building's main entrance and denied passengers the ability to board their transportation, Friday, in opposition to the nation's policies on the refugee crisis.

The activists stood outside the UK Eurostar terminal, holding placards reading "Your borders kill" and "Protect people, not borders," as they chanted slogans against the British government's military budget and expenditure. A number of the protesters poured red liquid on the floor, a symbolic act meant to represent the migrants and refugees killed due to European border policy.

The antifascists and members of 'Sisters Uncut' were eventually pushed out of the station as dozens of travellers struggled to reach their trains.
