Incensed by the UKBA's recent raid on Kensal Green station. when officers appeared to be stopping and questioning commuters on the basis of their race and ethnicity, local residents today set up a free cupcake stall with a message.
Cakes bearing the slogans 'UKBA sucks' and 'I love Immigrants' were give out along with leaflets and cards informing people of their rights if stopped by the UKBA.
The unique protest soon gained customers, once they had got over the initial shock of something being given away AND being warmly greeted.
Underlying the fun and sugar rush was a serious message:
This community will not standby while people are stereotyped, scapegoated, bullied and victimised.
We will not allow the Coalition, competing with UKIP for the racist vote, to divide and rule us.
