The end of free movement of people with the EU is looming as potentially the UK’s biggest single roll-back of migrant rights in decades. And the injustices with which European migrants are threatened have already long been inflicted on non-EU migrants, who face a regime of precarity, discrimination, detentions, and deportations. These policies are fed by, and in turn feed, a simmering pool of xenophobic suspicion and hatred.

This situation is the result of a decades-long right-wing campaign of scapegoating. Stagnant wages, unemployment, crumbling services and a housing crisis have been falsely blamed on immigration. These lies serve to divide workers and divert blame from exploitative bosses and landlords — the class of the rich and powerful, and their servants in government, who are the real culprits. The anti-migrant policies they pursue do not protect workers — on the contrary, by denying migrant workers equal access to social security and tying their right to remain, or their ability to get by, to particular employment, they leave these workers precarious and at the mercy of hyper-exploitative employers — potentially undermining all of us.

In the context of the looming threats, more than ever we need concerted action to turn the tide. We can defeat these racist lies by telling the truth about who is to blame for social hardship, and offering real solutions — solidarity between workers of all birthplaces to fight for decent jobs, homes, services and social security, and a fundamental shift of wealth and power to workers.

We know there are a whole array of pro-migrant campaigners and organisations out there doing important work. If we come together to take action in the coming months, we could significantly swing things in favour of migrant rights and free movement. So we invite all campaigners and organisations who agree, to join us at this open meeting and plan for protest, direct action and more.
