6 ways to mark Windrush Day and challenge the racist hostile environment

Today is Windrush Day, marking the day 72 years ago when the Empire Windrush ship arrived at Tilbury Docks and gave its name to a generation of migrants from the Caribbean.

Global Justice Now took a ‘remain and reform’ position in the EU referendum – to stay in the EU in order to transform it. We feared that leaving would lead to an outpouring of xenophobia and racism, and would potentially unleash a wave of deregulation and liberalisation, especially through trade deals. We were right to be worried.

The recent scandal around the Windrush generation has exposed the true extent of the inhumanity underpinning the government’s immigration policy. Under the government’s Hostile Environment policy, people living here a lifetime have been harassed, sacked, arrested and even deported. But as well as demanding justice for the Windrush generation, we need to go further. Here are some steps you can take to do so.

Reacting to Theresa May and Donald Trump's meeting in Davos, Switzerland, where they asked officials to finalise a visit by the president to the UK later this year, Nick Dearden director of Global Justice Now, said:

The tabloids’ aggressive response to Stop Funding Hate’s Paperchase victory shows they’re feeling the heat
