> One of the squatted buildings that Amsterdam police evicted on Tuesday July 5 in Amsterdam was the 'cultural freeplace' Schijnheilig.

This concert and the people present were attacked by police, who beat people up severely and arrested almost 150 persons. Those of the arrested refusing to tell their name are still in prison and have been put in 'foreigner detention' (which can be for almost unlimited time)

> study on conditions faced by irregular migrants employed as domestic workers
> EU Fundamental Rights Agency presents new study on conditions faced by irregular migrants employed as domestic workers. Today the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) is presenting its report on the fundamental rights of irregular migrants who are employed as domestic workers in the EU. Most irregular migrants in domestic work are women. The report shows that their irregular immigration status, coupled with challenges in regulating domestic work more generally, makes this group very vulnerable to exploitation, including cases of physical abuse. Typical forms of exploitation include low pay, often having to work excessive working hours, and usually not being able to obtain compensation for work-related accidents.

> All-seeing, all-knowing: the proposal for a National Crime Agency in the UK
> The UK government has announced plans to establish a National Crime Agency, intended to a provide a "multi-agency national response" to a number of issues - organised crime, border security, economic crime, and the exploitation of children. Widely reported in the press as an "FBI-style" agency, the NCA is deemed necessary for a number of reasons. The primary motivation seem to be that "cutting crime is the sole objective that the government has set for the police", but the current response to organised crime is "patchy and fragmented".

When it comes to our divinely ordained rulers, even the most minimal pretence at neutrality and respect for due process has been dropped and the attitudes and motivations of law enforcement laid bare.

> New detention phone system to keep detainees under control
> A new phone system run by a private company will replace personal mobile phones in immigration detention centres, Corporate Watch can reveal. The trial at Tinsley House detention centre, near Gatwick airport, is run by Global Comms & Consulting Ltd (GCC), which specialises in secure telecommunications services to major government agencies and multinational companies. As a result, detainees will not be able to call free numbers and will pay significantly higher rates to call their family and solicitors. All calls will also be recorded, monitored and disrupted when necessary by the immigration authorities and/or the immigration prison’s management.

> Calais Video Breaking Headlines across France
> After initially breaking on Rue89 the French media Channel TF1 has just released a video composed of several clips from the work of CMS (Calais Migrants Solidarity ). The police are shown pepper-spraying, being violent, abusive and unprofessional. This video combines several already high profile clips including the police playing loud music whilst raiding Africa House at night and the PAF punching an activist holding a video camera. A CMS activist talks to a radio interviewer about working on the ground in Calais and the use of video cameras in escalating violence towards migrants. A police spokesperson also attempts to claim that the police are highly professional whilst a clip of them playing football during a squat raid runs in the background.
