Finland
Activists from the No Border network occupied the
Helsinki offices of the Directorate of Immigration on
21st February, demanding an end to arbitrary
deportation (see picture). The action followed an
attempt the day before to deport an 11 year old
Armenian boy, his mother and his older brother.
They were all said to be suffering from trauma, and
the boy was undergoing treatment. The deportation
failed when the older boy escaped.

The decision to deport the family has been
particularly controversial in Finland, and the No
Border activists said their action was part of an
attempt to have it rescinded. "It's time to break the
silence and to stop the arbitrary deportation
roulette", said one.

Nigeria
The ports of Apapa and Tin Can Island reopened on
22nd February, following clashes between cops and
protesting dockers. Three people were killed in the
clashes, which followed the fatal shooting of another
docker by police in Apapa. The docks have long been
a focus for workers' resistance to the country's
governments.

Belgium
Around fifty activists were arrested near Antwerpen
(Antwerp) on 1st March, as they tried to stop trains
carrying American weaponry from entering the
harbour. Those arrested included activists from
Belgium, the Netherlands and France. They said the
weapons were intended for use in the invasion of
Iraq.
