MIGRANT STRIKES

A grassroots movement of migrant protests have sprung up all over Europe in response to discriminatory immigrant laws and systemic xenophobia. Declaring the 1st March ‘a day without immigrants, 24 hours without us’, foreign workers united in solidarity against their criminalisation and lack of political rights.

The strike – which many felt unable to join in for fear of losing their jobs – was only part of the protest as migrants also organised mass marches, concerts and meetings from Paris to Rome.
