People are being taken from our communities and locked up in prison-like detention centres, without time limit, with no idea of when they might be released. Not for having committed a crime. They just don’t have the correct immigration papers…
At a time when EU nationals are being deported for sleeping rough; when banks, landlords, schools and even the NHS are deputised in the hunt for ‘illegal’ immigrants; and when detainees are forced to go on hunger strike to protest the failures and abuses of the Home Office, the issue of immigration has clearly never been more urgent.
In Episode 8 of Radicals in Conversation, Chris Browne is joined by special guests Gracie Bradley from Liberty, and Luke Butterly from Right to Remain, in a timely discussion about the UK government’s ‘hostile environment’ policy, the horrors and injustice of the immigration detention system, and the community groups and campaigners who are trying to put an end to it.
