This is the recording of Regularise’s live webinar – Undocumented Migrants and Human Rights – Solidarity Knows No Borders – which was held on Saturday 10th October from 4pm to 5:30pm. https://regularise.org/blog/update-from-october-10th-webinar-undocumented-migrants-and-human-rights-solidarity-knows-no-borders/
This was part of the Solidarity Knows No Borders : Action Against the Hostile Environment weekend of action coordinated by Migrants Organise, with the Monday commemorating the 10th anniversary of the death of Jimmy Mubenga who died after being restrained by G4S security guards onboard a charter flight to forcibly remove him from the UK.
We discussed the terminology around migrants rights and the current situation that migrants face in the UK with a specific focus on those who are undocumented and those with insecure status. We also had speakers with lived experience and those working to support those with lived experience in various ways along with a Q&A.
