The Hope not Hate and Migration Exchange Response Project, which seeks to better prepare the refugee and migration sector to respond to the far-right threat has now published Migration-and-the-Far-Right_2021-01 its first briefing.
It covers recent far-right activity around channel crossings and temporary accommodation, which they hope will be helpful in building a more in depth understanding of how these actors are operating. They have seen activity slow down in recent months, with lockdown inhibiting their ability to organise and the police clamping down on anti-migrant activists on the far-right, but as we all know, there is still noise being made by those who seek to exploit the situation.
The Response Project will be sending regular updates through these briefings and around any key events, but a reminder that you can submit anything you’re coming across on or offline here. Anything you submit helps them to build and share a fuller picture.
