Immigration Migrant solidarity campaigners blockade the Home Office

THE HOME OFFICE in London was blockaded by migrant solidarity campaigners today demanding an end to the “hostile environment” created by the government against immigrants.

The blockade took place just hours after Amber Rudd resigned as home secretary in disgrace over the shocking treatment of Windrush generation migrant workers.

The blockade was organised by campaign group Global Justice Now.

The campaign’s Aisha Dodwell said: “The last two weeks have seen an outpouring of sympathy and anger in response to the Windrush scandal, which has brought the daily cruelty of our immigration system out into the open.

“It could mark a turning point in Britain’s migration debate.

“But the root cause of that cruelty is the Prime Minister’s choice to create a hostile environment.

“Whoever is home secretary and whoever is prime minister, the hostile environment for immigrants has to end now.”
