Status Now Newsletter August 2021

On the 19th of July, Status Now Network joined the Voice of Immigrants UK for a peaceful demonstration outside 10 Downing Street to call for the regularisation of all undocumented migrants living in the UK. The demonstration coincided with the debate inside Parliament on the petition signed by 103, 440. In solidarity with the Voice of Immigrants UK, Status Now Network parallel demonstrations in Manchester and Coventry. You can watch the simultaneous rallies on our Facebook page here.

We are winning: we will render the hostile environment friendly, and we ask you to continue supporting our actions until we achieve our goal: Indefinite Leave to Remain for all undocumented migrants and those in the legal process.

SNN Project: A People’s Tribunal to expose injustice against migrant and refugee people!

At its summit event earlier this year the Status Now Network agreed to organise a People’s Tribunal to interrogate the reasons why immigration law and policy has turned do decisively against any concept of migrant and refugee rights in recent decades.

People’s Tribunals have been used many times over the years to investigate the human rights abuses of governments and states.  They have played a powerful role in mobilising public opinion against such outrages as the US war in Vietnam, the crimes of the military dictatorships in Latin America, and the plight of indigenous people being robbed of their ways of life across the world.

Can we use what has proved in the past to be such an effective tool to create awareness of injustice and to inspire people to take action in the case of migrant and refugee people in the UK, who have been subjected to hostile environment policies?

Status Now Network has set up a working group to look into the practicalities of organising a People’s Tribunal that would look into these issues.  To be viable as a project it would need to draw on the knowledge and experiences that are present in migrant and refugee communities across the UK, and in particular, get the support of their representative organisations to help provide the evidence of injustice.

The PT working group is keen to hear from you and find out how we can involve you in building this project.  If you would like to hear more about the work we are planning please send an email with ‘People’s Tribunal’ in the subject line to and we will get back to you!
