18th September 2020 PRESS RELEASE: STATUS NOW 4 ALL BACKS PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATIONS CALLING FOR LEAVE TO REMAIN FOR UNDOCUMENTED MIGRANTS IN THE UK
A national Day of Action is being held this weekend to call for an end to the Government’s Hostile Environment policy and for Leave to Remain to be given to all undocumented migrants in the UK.
Regularise, one of Status Now Network’s signatories, is organising a peaceful demonstration for the rights of undocumented migrants on Saturday, 19th September. It will be held from 1pm-4pm outside 10 Downing Street to ensure the Prime Minister Boris Johnson hears our call for Status Now.
Also at 1pm on Saturday September 19th, the human rights charity RAPAR www.rapar.co.uk will be holding a demonstration outside the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal Offices, Manchester M1 4AH.
This will run from 1pm-2.30pm and has been called to show solidarity with Regularise and to support the demand for Leave to Remain for undocumented migrants.
The Manchester demonstration will also be protesting about the re-opening of the UK’s Immigration Reporting Centres and against Britain First’s sustained harassment of refugees who have been placed in hotels. RAPAR is one of the organisations which have led the call for Status Now since the Covid-19 pandemic sparked a national lockdown in March.2020-09-19-Manchester-in-support-of-Regularise-demoDownload
