Today was the last day of our operation and a new life filled with trepidation for 23 people.Of the 23 6 are children under 12 years and 5 youths. They were all incredibly brave today making there through what was a very small and confined space. Immigrant Crazy Eye and Roof Bolter did a great job of ensuring the safety of the tunnel. We also had some good luck with the weather as there was no rain.
The 23 escapees from the immigration detention are no staying in 4 squats. Many will find their way back into the community over the coming days and weeks. With some it may be more difficult and the PLU can give 2 squats for medium term. We will also look to create documentation for the 23. Currently we are limited in what support we can give. I and Immigrant Y previously had access to theimmigration database and we could generate documents but this is no longer possible with us on the run. So here are todays live tweets one month to execute our plan. Read the live tweets from the bottom of the page up:
Immigrant_X : The PLU is able to get some limited documentation and we will see what is safe to do in this regard.
Immigrant_X : Most already have connections with communities in the city. For the families will try and see what documentation we can generate for them.
Immigrant_X : All those that escaped are safe in the 4 squats we fitted out. They are all nervous and concerned as to what comes next.
Immigrant_X: I will post the live tweets from todays action on the escape of 23 people from the Immigration Detention Centre in a little while.
Immigrant_X: We are sure that the escape has been detected and probably a tactic to gain more information by keeping it quiet.
Immigrant_X: We have not heard any news of an escape form the detention centre. We have read about the protest though in online media.
Immigrant_X: I, like the others am incredibly tired. The adrenalin of today and one month straight hard physical labour have taken their toll.
Immigrant_X: Tonight we will stay in a small squat. @immigrant_Z and @immigranty are already there waiting fo the rest of us. I hope with some food
Immigrant_X: She is still on her way but will be in the city in about half an hour.
Immigrant_X: Immigrant Crazy Eye managed to crawl throught he drainage tunnel and then had to walk about a 2kn to a bus stop.
Immigrant_X: We left the house that had been the centre of our tunneling operation just an hour ago.
Immigrant_X: I am in the pickup now with Immigrant Roof Bolter. We managed to wipe down the house.
Immigrant_X: @findthathannah Hi just sent you a DM.
