LGBT History Month 2020 — Network announcement on launch of ‘Need to Know – Immigration UK’ information website

The Network is very Proud to announce the launch of the ‘Need to Know – Immigration UK‘ website information resource in conjunction with our national/main partner organisation ‘Just a Ball Game?‘ whose support on this multiorganisation supported badly needed information resource is greatly appreciated. The resource ‘lifts the lid’ on the mechanics of bullying and brutality at the heart of the Hostile Environment, and its source, its implementers and protectors — in Whitehall.

Today in conjunction with the e-resource launch we are delighted to share the following article from Immigration News UK:

A formal launch in London will be taking place for the associated e-book (both resource and e-book being compiled and created by Alan Mercel-Sanca, Network lead and principal initiator) later in March, with March 19th the advised date — PLEASE WATCH THIS SPACE for more information!

The resource is a nationally and internationally important initiative that involves and unites both BAME and LGBT communities on the very serious issues of targeting and abuses of power and process that the Hostile Environment current UK Immigration operational level implementing organisations/agencies (especially the Home Office & Immigration Tribumnal) have been responsible for. Groundbreaking in bringing our LGBT and BAME communities together in an exceptional way, through a shared often horrific experience of many years duration through the latter, the resource has a dedicated LGBT section, and beyond this the broader information resource highlights LGBT experiences along with our BAME communities ones.
