Migrants are part of the working class, but capitalists and the right leverage racism to undermine class solidarity. Detention and deportation regimes are run for profit, ‘worker shortage’ lists greenlight low pay, welfare and legal aid cuts hurt us all. This session explores the economics of migration and how we can refuse to pay the price of capitalist border violence.
