Description

Migration: How is it produced by capitalism? How does it reproduce capitalism?

As part of AntiUniversity 2018, Plan C North/North East London aims to lead a discussion and workshop on the subject of migration, paying particular attention to how contemporary discourse around migration and the material problems migrant communities face on a daily basis are both created by the conditions of contemporary capitalism, and how they reproduce the conditions necessary for capitalist modernity to thrive and reproduce itself.

We hope to engage these questions not only by looking to examples of how discourse and policy around migration is managed in the UK, but also globally. To fully understand the ways in which capitalism subsists through a regime of exploitation, we must also come to terms with the manner in which issues that transgress existing state borders, how the global precariat is connected through an integrated network, but simultaneously isolated from one another.

Most importantly, our intention in addressing these questions is not only to understand capitalist exploitation of migrant workers, but to create a space in which we can work together to develop effective strategies for counterpower. Ideally, this event could lay a foundation for planning concrete action. We especially wish to encourage those who have experienced the UK's 'hostile environment' policies first-hand to join us, though the event is also open to everyone, regardless of whether you are a migrant worker, someone who is already involved in organising against the injustice against migrant populations, or just generally interested and looking for a way to become more involved.

Any questions or queries about this event can be raised by getting in touch with us at: london@weareplanc.org.
