The news that the Stansted 15 would not face jail comes as a huge relief, while the fight for justice continues – for these brave human rights defenders, and all those subject to the Hostile Environment.
When refugees and other migrants reach UK shores their struggle isn’t over, they encounter a ‘hostile environment’ that seeks to penalise and alienate them.

Just released: a must-watch short film about the actions and trial of the Stansted 15, the Home Office’s brutal treatment of people, and the incredible support these peaceful protesters have received.
