People & Planet started this petition to Newcastle University and

Migrant students and workers in the university are subjected to increasingly invasive forms of policing. While targeting migrants, these processes also erode all of their rights and freedoms.

We at People & Planet Newcastle encourage students to help reclaim universities as a site of struggle for migrant justice. People, not documents and detention centres, must have the power to determine who is free to live with dignity and transform society. We are part of the long fight for these rights to be universal.

Signing the petition is a step towards Vice-Chancellor Chris Day and major Unions on campus pledging against the hostile environment on campus which commits to prioritising the human rights and data protection of students and staff, and its duty of care towards them, over surveillance for the Home Office, thus reducing compliance to a bare minimum. As well as classifying students with temporary immigration status as ‘home’ students for fee purposes and offering them financial and administrative support.

Please support our campaign in any way you cam to transform our University to a more inclusive place for all!
