Over 150 journalists and politicians sign on to our new Principles for Ethical Reporting on Migration. We worked young migrants, Migrants' Rights Network and reporters to develop a set of ten principles that ask journalists and public figures signed up to, committing to working to change the way the media talks about migrants.
The UK government is denying basic human rights through racist policies. In 2014, a policy to create a 'hostile environment' was implemented. We have seen not just the overt blatant physical borders come to the fore, but also the everyday borders that deny undocumented migrants basic human rights. Resulting in being denied access to health care, education and housing, falling hand in hand with the ever rising racist abuse towards people from a migrant background.
