Dr Tanzil Chowdhury co-writes an article for Verso on the recent conviction of the Stansted 15

12 December 2018

Dr Tanzil Chowdhury co-authored an article for Verso on the recent conviction of the Stanstead 15 who peacefully blocked a mass deportation flight in March 2017. The article reads: “The grounding of this one charter flight in March 2017 made the brutality of deportation more visible, and the importance of that cannot be overstated. It symbolises the broad struggle, not merely for a fairer immigration system or for a nicer kind of deportation, but for an end to all deportations. The actions of the Stansted 15 remind us that it could be otherwise, that not everyone is willing to sit and let these forms of state violence happen, and that extreme forms of state racism call for radical and collective forms of political action.” Click here to read the whole article.
