BRITAIN HAS REACHED A CRISIS POINT

The coronavirus pandemic has revealed a chasm that exists between the country’s rich and poor. For generations, the country has relied on migrants to keep the wheels of its society in motion. But politicians want to deport them. Is time running out for Britain’s migrant communities just when we need them the most?

“There is a hostile environment. It’s hostile economically meaning that people in this  country can be left in destitution. To me that’s a national embarrassment.”

PARTICIPANT

“They locked me up, saying I was illegal and they were going to deport me.. I’m angry, but sometimes I find it hard to show my anger because when I show my anger as a black man I’m a mad man.”

PARTICIPANT, VICTIM OF WINDRUSH SCANDAL

“Windrush, Grenfell – the policies that we have around immigration, they’re all interlinked by systemic racism. Grenfell happened because the concerns of migrant, working class communities were not taken seriously.”

PARTICIPANT, MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT

“We’ve gone through covid and we’ve all seen loneliness, we’ve all seen exactly what these people have experienced, and we’ve seen it, we’ve felt it”

PARTICIPANT, PROTESTOR AT DETENTION CENTRE

“As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome.”

NOAM CHOMSKY

“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it.”

ARUNDHATI ROY, AUTHOR

“The very serious function of racism is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work; keeps you explaining, over and over again, your reason for being. Somebody says you have no language; spend 20 years proving that you do…there will always be one more thing.”

Toni Morrison, Author
