Migration

 

Over 25,000 migrants have died in their attempt to reach or stay in Europe since 2000. But this is not a crisis caused by migrants. It is a crisis caused by war, poverty and inequality. 

Here in the UK, migrants are under attack and xenophobia is on the rise. UK and European governments are increasingly adopting policies which demonise and criminalise migrants, and their response to the recent ‘migrant crisis’ focuses more and more heavily on a military approach. While the situation was bad before Brexit, things have got worse since with a sharp rise in racist attacks and increasingly hostile anti-immigration rhetoric being stirred up by a hateful anti-migrant media agenda.

Global Justice Now is fighting to resist harmful government policies as well as expose unacceptable media narratives and present more honest coverage of migrants.

We want to defend the right to free movement in Europe, but also extend it to people beyond Europe. It is unacceptable that the wealthy can move their money across the world with very few limits while people fleeing poverty, oppression and war are met with repression. We must take action to defend the rights of migrants and refugees.

Tell M&S to stop funding hate

Advertising money from companies such as Marks and Spencer enables newspapers like the Daily Mail to pump out hatred against migrants and refugees. We can stop this. Ask M&S to stop funding hate.

Freedom of movement can help us defeat poverty and inequality. It can help us to develop knowledge, skills and understanding, as well as generate large flows of remittances from the global north to the global south. We need to argue for a better system and work towards free movement for everyone.
