23 March 2021 — Migrants Organise
We are excited to announce the third event in our #SolidarityKnowsNoBorders webinar series THIS Thursday 25th of March at 6pm – Cases into Causes, Causes into a Movement: How Can Individual Campaigns Lead to Collective Justice? Make sure you register on Zoom to join now!
We are delighted to be joined by Simba Mujakachi, from the Justice for Simba Campaign, Dorothea Jones, from The Monitoring Group, and Zo from Collective Action, who will join us to discuss how individual campaigns lead to collective justice and structural change.
Join us this Thursday by registering for the Zoom here.
Individual campaigns have long been a rallying cry for wider movements for structural change, by highlighting the brutality of British state racism, including in the immigration system. They are campaigns that demonstrate that individuals have the power to change the broader conditions around them and to mobilise communities to build coalitions and alliances. As Sivanandan said, individual campaigns can turn “cases into issues, issues into causes, and causes into a movement.”
In this third #SolidarityKnowsNoBorders webinar, we will ask:
- How can individual justice campaigns simultaneously highlight the effects of racism, whilst also laying the groundwork for wider movement building?
- How do we use legal tools and advocacy to win justice against a hostile immigration system, and beyond?
- What is the role of lived experience to these campaigns? And how do we connect and unite our campaigns together to win structural change?

HOSTILE BORDERS KILL WOMEN
We are deeply saddened by the case of Sarah Everard, a young woman whose life was cut short far too soon in the most violent of circumstances.
We share in the country’s collective anger and demand justice for all women experiencing violence – on our streets, in our homes and at the hands of the State. We stand steadfast in our struggle for justice, and do so in remembrance of all the women who have been killed by police officers and border guards, in prison, in immigration detention, or in state custody.
