Trump in the UK

A,

Last week, when Trump visited the UK, the country burst to life with protests from London to Glasgow. The message was clear: whilst world leaders welcome him with formal state visits, ordinary folk outright reject him and his foul brand of politics.

So much of this is down to SumOfUs members like you -- who made sure the mass protests dominated UK headlines and cut through all the pageantry of Trump’s official visit.

Check out this video of all the things we got up to:

Big Techs war on immigrants

Across the world, companies like Microsoft and Salesforce are helping ICE and Frontex lead their war against immigrants and refugees.

Call on tech companies to side with immigrants and renounce their contracts with ICE and Frontex!

Sign the Petition

A,

In the US and EU, Immigration Customs Enforcement and Frontex carry out the everyday enforcement of xenophobic immigration policies. But they’re not alone: tech companies like Microsoft and Salesforce are equipping immigration police with the tools they rely on to track, identify, and incarcerate migrants and asylum seekers.

While Trump’s immigration enforcement agencies continue to make headlines around the world for their enforcement of his heartless immigration policy, many tech giants like Microsoft...

UN Office Calls for Probe Into Human Rights in Kashmir

John Riddell

A conference in Mississauga July 7, convened by the Kashmir Welfare Society, marked the first organized response in Canada to a United Nations report calling for an investigation of human rights violations in this divided South Asian territory.

More than 200 participants adopted a resolution calling on the government of India to withdraw troops from Kashmir (full name: Jammu and Kashmir) in order to permit an "enabling environment" for implementation of the UN’s resolutions calling for a plebiscite to determine the territory’s future.

President Sardar Masood Khan of Azad Kashmir, the Pakistan-administered portion of Kashmir, described to the Mississauga gathering a broad unarmed protest movement in Indian-administered Kashmir that seeks self-determination...

Border Capitalism, Disrupted:
Precarity and Struggle in a Southeast Asian Industrial Zone

Stephen Campbell

Through to the back of the cremation grounds where the fields of sugarcane begin, Ko Soe and I coast our bicycles to a stop. It is mid-December, and the sugarcane stocks are tall now, taller than us. Somewhere amid these fields Myanmar migrant workers from the nearby Apex garment factory are hiding. We know this because Ko Soe had only minutes ago been talking with one of them by phone, but then the connection had died; presumably this worker’s phone had run out of power. So now we dismount and look around for an entrance into the fields. The sugarcane is far too dense to walk through, even if we were...
