An explainer about the hostile environment
Published on 29 Nov 2019
Have you heard of the governments Hostile Environment policy?
It aims to make life really tough for illegal immigrants, but at the cost of demonising migrants and destroying their livelihood. It creates an “us” and “them” conversation, discriminating on an already vulnerable group of people in our society. It’s a deeply concerning policy, watch the video to find out why.
EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
