Campaign

Nationality and Borders

The Government has now passed its authoritarian Nationality and Borders Act. This Act will significantly lower Britain’s commitment to humanitarian aims and disadvantage swathes of vulnerable people. This Act increases the powers of the Home Secretary while attempting to reduce the powers that ordinary and often marginalised individuals have to hold systems to account. 

The Nationality and Borders Act is at its heart about making conditions in the UK more difficult for refugees. At a time when Europe is experiencing the biggest refugee crisis since the Second World War, it seems counter-intuitive that such legislation should pass. And yet it has. 

Every asylum seeker deserves just treatment. They should not be shipped off to other countries with poor human rights records, nor should they be subject to inhumane detention regimes. Victims of trafficking and modern slavery must be looked after sensitively, rather than doubted at every turn. Unfortunately, this Act flies in the face of the duties and responsibilities we hold to others. 

And things will get worse. As the new parliamentary session commences, the Government has further legislation in the pipeline that will weaken asylum seekers rights and ramp up the number of deportations we see here in the UK. 

So while the Government dispenses with compassion, we shall keep campaigning.

Bring compassion back into politics

This Government has now passed the inhumane Nationality and Borders Act. The Act will weaken protections for refugees and will allow the UK to take a much harsher line towards victims of modern slavery and trafficking. This Act is not fit for a responsible or fair society. 

But instead of seeking to rectify what it has done, the Government wants to go further. New legislation expected in the coming Parliamentary session will increase the number of deportations we see in the UK. The rights conferred upon asylum seekers by the EU could be severely rolled back. We are entering a new era where hostility is the default - and cruelty is its ultimate manifestation. 

We will continue to campaign tirelessly against these nativist and cruel policies. An open and inclusive world rightly should see wealthier countries play their part. The ills of the wider world will only rebound upon us if we do not help now. The Government knows this when it comes to providing military aid to the Ukrainians, but it won’t adopt the same open policies when it comes to Ukrainian refugees, continuing to impose challenging visa restrictions upon them. Refugees from elsewhere are in an even worse position with regards to entry to the UK, with barely any legal routes and sanctions imposed upon them if they enter by a small boat crossing.

Will you play your part in the campaign and urge the Government to recognise its international obligations towards refugees? This isn’t just about compassion - it’s also about the stability of the world at large and the security of this country too. Ignoring a crisis will not make that crisis go away. 

The Government must take action today by opening up accessible, safe and legal routes for refugees from around the world to enter the UK. 

Urge the Government to open up these routes and fulfil its duties by signing the petition.

Fight back against the Government’s cruel agenda

The Government has passed the inhumane Nationality and Borders Act. 

Things are only going to get worse. 

Though we face the worst refugee crisis in Europe since the Second World War, the Government is burying its head in the sand and pushing through legislation which at best ignores the crisis and at worst exacerbates it. Without safe and legal routes for asylum seekers, and without proper protections for those fleeing war and persecution, we will only see this crisis escalate till it is of monstrous proportions

We’re going to campaign against, lobby against and raise awareness of this Government’s draconian agenda towards asylum seekers. But to do that we need your help. 

Will you donate today and help us prepare to tackle this crisis? The Government is set to introduce more authoritarian and heartless bills this year which will see the numbers of deportations rise and which may see the rights of vulnerable asylum seekers eroded. We will not let this happen without a fight.

So donate today and support that fight for justice and compassion.
