“This bill is an attack on us all, whether we are white, whether we are brown, whether we are black, gypsy, Roma traveller. Whether we are gay, whether we are straight, cis, trans. Whether we are muslim, whether we’re Jewish, whether we’re Christian. Whether we are people of faith or not at all. And that’s why it is so important that all of us across the UK, including here, are here to say: “No we will not accept this”. – Zarah Sultana MP Coventry South and Participant in Hostile
On Saturday we protested peacefully against the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill and Nationality and Borders Bill. Organisations came together from across the country to protest. Our film asks the question: What happens when the Hostile Environment turns on us all? And that is exactly what is happening now.
Under the Nationality and Borders Bill being debated in the House of Lords, if the British government wants to remove someone’s citizenship it will no longer need to tell them.
You can learn more about the Nationality and Borders Bill via this recent BBC article here.
