Operation SWAMP Brixton Cancelled

The intended Operation SWAMP due  taken  place today Thursday 6th March has now been cancelled   after after a strong and successful intervention by Lambeth Police Consultative Group. 

There will be no UKBA presence in Brixton today. There will be no arrests of rough sleeper or street drinkers, there will be no tenancy evictions, no gang sweeps or stop and search sweeps all thanks to massive community resistance.

The whole operation has now been down scaled and replaced by a small scale crime awareness event and some parking and ticket tout activity. Many thanks to those who supported the efforts to prevent this happening. Please share.
