London’s Chinatown went on strike for five hours in response to what they call heavy-handed ‘fishing raids’ by immigration officers. The protest had been organised by the London Chinatown Chinese Association (LCCA).
Protestors was shouting “justice for Chinatown” and “enough is enough” as hundreds of restaurant owners, waiters and chefs along with supporters marched through Chinatown, past the Houses of Parliament to the Home Office before heading back to Chinatown.
The demonstration was prompted by an incident earlier this month, when an immigration raid on a Chinatown restaurant caused disturbance in the middle of the day.
