Abolition, not reform

September 2023 Newsletter

Dear supporters,

Whether it’s the inhumane Migration Act, the crackdown on undocumented workers, or the Government’s appalling asylum accommodation plans, this Government’s cruelty truly knows no bounds.

This month, we have reflected on how the Hostile Environment continues to worsen, but also on how mainstream approaches to migrant justice actually legitimise and strengthen the harmful systems we are all fighting against.

In this newsletter, we share our Civil Society article and International Day of Charity blog post that argue for abolitionist approaches to migrant justice. This is a conversation we will continue to engage with as we move into an anti-oppression space.

This month, we have also been busy calling out the Government’s cruel policies. We coordinated an open letter against its cruel accommodation plans, and also spoke to Al Jazeera about cruel colonial legacies and the need for safe routes.

Finally, we share updates from our Words Matter campaign, and our new Hong Kong Migrants’ Aspiration Programme!

Thank you for your ongoing support.

In solidarity,

The MRN team
